Title: METHODS AND SYSTEMS FOR DETECTING BIOANALYTES
Abstract:
A sensing system and a method utilizing same for determining and/or monitoring a presence and/or level of an analyte in a sample are provided. The sensing system is made of a nanostructure, or a plurality of nanostructures, having covalently attached thereto and a hydrogel having associated therewith a sensing moiety which selectively interacts with the analyte and being configured such that upon contacting the analyte, the nanostructure(s) exhibit a detectable change in an electrical property.
