A piezoelectric-based immunosensor for high density lipoprotein particle measurement
A piezoelectric-based immunosensor was developed for high density lipoprotein particle (HDL-P) measurement. Monoclonal anti-human apolipoprotein A1 antibody was used as a specific binding molecule for the major apolipoprotein of HDL-P. This sensing element was fabricated by immobilizing the anti-human apolipoprotein A1 on a 12 MHz AT-cut quartz crystal via a 3-mercaptopropionic acid (MPA) self-assembled monolayer. The frequency shift from the mass change of the antigen-antibody binding refers to the amount of HDL-P. The optimal antibody immobilization was performed to achieve the maximum potential of the antibody. The appropriate quantity and immobilization time of the antibody were 0.1 mg ml−1and 90 minutes, respectively. The immobilized antibody in the HDL-P immunosensor accomplished perfect binding with HDL-P within 60 minutes. The dose-response curve for HDL-P showed a linear response from 0.21 to 2.50 mg protein per ml equivalent to 0.40 × 1010to 3.65 × 1010particles per μl without significant interference from other lipoproteins. The intra- and inter-assay imprecision (CV) were 7.8 and 18.5%, respectively. The analytical accuracy of this measurement was 96.29-96.31%. The HDL-P concentration obtained from the sensor revealed a 2.05 mg protein per ml with 0.26 mg protein per ml of expanded uncertainty at the 95% confidence level. This immunosensor gave an assay result which correlated with the homogeneous enzymatic colorimetric assay (R2= 0.902). © 2014 the Partner Organisations.
