Detection and Quantification of Biomarkers Via a Piezoelectric Cantilever Sensor

Quantification of a target analyte is performed using a single sample to which amounts of the target analyte are added. Calibration is performed as part of quantification on the same sample. The target analyte is detectable and quantifiable using label free reagents and requiring no sample preparation. Target analytes include biomarkers such as cancer biomarkers, pathogenic Escherichia coli, single stranded DNA, and staphylococcal enterotoxin. The quantification process includes determining a sensor response of a sensor exposed to the sample and configured to detect the target analyte. Sensor responses are determined after sequential additions of the target analyte to the sample. The amount of target analyte detected by the sensor when first exposed to the sample is determined in accordance with the multiple sensor responses.
