— Polymethylmethacrylate (PMMA) is a useful material for development of
assays, biochips, and other biological materials. However, PMMA makes for a difficult substrate because of
complexities with respect to adhesion. This technology presents two new methods for enhanced protein binding onto PMMA.
Polymethylmethacrylate (PMMA) is a synthetic resin in the acrylic family, often used as a substitute for glass or as a material for biomedical devices. PMMA-based biosensors have low protein binding efficiency and low sensitivity. PMMA is used in a variety of applications like immunoassays, biosen…
