Tissue Paper as a Substrate for Electronic Biosensing

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


In the presented work, we combine a commonplace commodity, tissue paper, with biosensing capabilities to provide on-the-go detection of biomarkers. We developed a simple light-weight sensor using single walled carbon nanotubes (SWCNT) on commercially available tissue paper. As a proof of concept, we show that these sensors can be used to quantify Interleukin-6 protein concentration. Detection is carried out by examining the modulation in electrical properties of the substrate induced by addition of protein on these sensors. Our results show that these sensors can provide the foundation for development of tissue paper based portable sensors for biomarkers relevant to on-the-go testing.
