Abstract

Ultrasensitive and selective detection of molecules at nano or sub-nanomolar level is very important for many areas such as early diagnosis and drug testing. Herein, we report a high-sensitive cocaine sensor based on a single nanochannel coupled with DNA aptamers. The single nanochannel-aptamer-based biosensor can recognize cocaine molecules with an excellent sensitivity and good selectivity. A linear relationship between target cocaine concentration and output ionic current is obtained in a wide concentration range of cocaine from 1 nM to 10 μM. The cocaine sensor also shows a detection limit down to 1 nM. This study provides a new avenue to develop new nanochannel-aptamer-based biosensors for rapid and ultratrace detection of a variety of illicit drugs.
