The news reporters obtained a quote from the research, "Surface roughness using AFM increased with each immobilization or antigen-antibody reaction step clearly confirming the surface modification and recognition between antigen and antibody. The human serum (HS) and new-born calf serum (NCS) spiked with antigen-specific antibody were studied to mimic the real sample analysis. The HS and NCS sera containing antibodies due to measles exhibited correlation between the increasing antibody serum concentrations and the charge-transfer resistance (electrochemically measured)."
According to the news reporters, the research concluded: "This work clearly showed the potential use of impedance as the preferred electrochemical method for detecting measles-antibodies in label-free manner."
