Abstract: Immunosensors based on impedance spectroscopy for diagnosing hepatitis C are reported where the sensing units were made with the antigenic peptide PPLLESWKDPDYVPPWHG (NS5A-1) derived from the NS5A protein of the hepatitis C virus (HCV) immobilized in layer-by-layer (LbL) films with silk fibroin (SF) and deposited on gold interdigitated electrodes. The electrical response of the sensing units varied upon immersion into solutions containing the antibody anti-HCV owing to the biomolecular recognition of NS5A-1. …
