After coating both sets of nanowires with antibodies for the specific protein that the researchers want to detect, a tiny drop of blood is added to the first compartment.
After the design, the device fabrication process follows which consists of Nanowire fabrication, the fabrication comprises of 11 photoligraphy processes, it begins with wafer preparation and this is done by cleaning the wafer with acetone first to remove all unwanted particle may sticked to the wafer surface, this process followed by depositing silicon nitride to isolate the silicon substrate from subsequent structures to be built thereafter.
