specific binding test
it was rinsed several times. This experiment also resulted in a negligible change in
the drain current as expected. The results clearly confirmed that the considerable
decrease in the drain current for both environments was due to the specific binding
of anti-AI and AIa. Thus, it was verified that the biosensor characteristics measured
in dry environments are valid to the same extent as they are in watery environments.
