Samenvatting

Molecularly imprinted polymers (MIP) based on biomimetic approaches have proven their capabilities for creating highly specific receptor materials. We developed and investigated a biosensor based on MIP for the selective detection of cholesterol in synthetic media as well as in human blood sera. The surface roughness of imprinted interface increased to 4 nm as compared to non-imprinted indicating the presence of cholesterol-specific cavities. The concentration of cholesterol was related to the flow of charge across the interface of microchip. The biosensor showed a good linear relationship with the concentration of cholesterol ranging from 0.01 to 1 mM with a low limit of detection as 0.31 mM. The interface specifically recognized cholesterol three times as compared to cholecalciferol. The average clinical recovery rate of 98.81% indicates promising potential for an alternate to enzymatic biosensors for the determination of cholesterol. Graphical abstract: (Figure presented.)
