The integration of graphene into biosensors is rapidly improving diagnostic capabilities. Graphene biosensors promise to deliver enhanced sensitivity, faster biomarker detection and the potential to be functionalised with multiple biomarkers on a single chip.
Graphene-based biosensors could require minimal or no sample preparation and work to high specificity with small sample volumes.
The superior performance of graphene has been difficult to reliably reproduce until now. Paragraf’s patented manufacturing process using MOCVD has made the manufacture of high-quality 2D graphene possible for the first time at scale.

IN VITRO DIAGNOSTIC TESTS
Graphene biosensors are functionalised using DNA, RNA, antigens, antibodies, aptamers, affimers and enzymes for a wide range of target biomarkers.
This functionalisation can be achieved using off-the-shelf reagents that allow the detection of a broad array of target molecules. Selectivity of biosensors is enhanced by the high sensitivity of high-purity 2D graphene, creating biosensors that are able to detect extremely low concentrations of pathogens/analytes in fluids and gases.
