Upconversion nanocrystal ‘armoured’ silica fibres with superior photoluminescence for miRNA detection

Author affiliations

Abstract

We have fabricated a flexible membrane, consisting of SiO2 nanofibres armoured with upconversion nanoparticles, exhibiting intense photoluminescence. These assemblies were subsequently grafted with molecular beacons to produce a biosensor suitable for the detection of specific microRNA and with applications in early cancer detection and point-of-care diagnosis.
