Hepatitis B virus detection increased using gold nanoparticle immunosensor

(Nanowerk News) Researchers from University of Tehran succeeded in designing and production of an immunosensor based on nanotechnology to increase the rate and accuracy of the detection of hepatitis B virus existing in patients’ blood serum.
In this research ("Gold nanoparticle based capacitive immunosensor for detection of hepatitis B surface antigen"), gold nanoparticles were used to increase the sensitivity of the immunosensor. The sensor is able to detect at least 10 ng/mL of hepatitis B surface antigen. Results of the research can be used in the production of immunosensors with high quality for the detection of various types of viruses, and the sensors can be used in diagnosis tests in hospitals.
