Abstract

Here, we demonstrate the amplification of translocation signals in a commercial nanofluidic resistive pulse sensing (RPS) system by utilizing aqueous two-phase system (ATPS). Two immiscible liquids build a liquid-liquid interface in a nanopore, so nanoparticles pass across the interface, during nanopore translocation. As transferring from high-affinity liquid into low-affinity one, the particles are coated by high-affinity liquid, inducing the increase of effective particle size. Consequently, this conformal coating can amplify the blockage current of nanoparticles. We experimentally capture that the blockage signal of 100nm polystyrene bead can be amplified 4.23-fold in ATPS (coating thickness: ∼40nm) than in a single phase solution.
