Carbon nanotube network films offer a highly attractive semiconducting platform for field effect transistors. In this presentation, Dr Natalie Plank will introduce aptamers, discuss how our aptasensors work, and show our recent result on the aptasensors that demonstrate aptamer-induced electrostatic gating of electronic conduction. These results, along with the implications for the development electronic biosensors using the growing library of aptamer receptors for portable health diagnostics, will be presented.
