Abstract

Liquid crystals are rigid organic molecules that exhibit orientational behavior on surfaces. The orientation of liquid crystals can be controlled by the design of surfaces with regular nanoscale features and/or defined chemistries. The orientation of liquid crystals on such surfaces can be exploited to sensitively report the binding of proteins to the surface [1-6]. Liquid crystal based detection of proteins can be the basis for a new generation of diagnostics and research tools. The use of liquid crystals to detect proteins enables the development of label free, rapid, sensitive and multiplexed assays.
