Title: SENSOR FOR THE DETECTION OF BIOMOLECULES
Abstract:
The present disclosure relates to a sensor for the detection of analytes, in particular for the detection of biomolecules. The sensor includes a (bio)compatible sensing layer including a polymer matrix or gel matrix, particularly a polymer gel matrix, organic nanoparticles and, optionally, one or several cell adhesion layer(s). The cell adhesion layer(s) can be varied depending on the type of cells. In the presence of the analytes, the organic nanoparticles are capable of photon up-conversion emission. The sensor further optionally includes plasmonic metal nanoparticles. The present disclosure further relates to methods of producing such a sensor and to uses of such a sensor.
