View the Complete Application at the US Patent & Trademark Office
Provided herein are sensors, kits that include such sensors, and methods for making and using such sensors. The sensors permit detection of a broad array of target molecules, such as nucleic acids (e.g., DNA and RNA), proteins, toxins, pathogens, cells, and metals, and can be used in combination with pH meters and pH paper. Thus, this disclosure provides a new methodology that allows pH meters and pH paper to be used for the detection of analytes other than pH.
