DOI: 10.1039/C4BM00210E, Paper
Our systematic study of thermodynamics and kinetics of polythiophene–DNA complexes shows that the presence of positively charged polymers increases dsDNA stability by three orders of magnitude, but slows down hybridization for about seven times. Improved DNA detection sensitivity is achieved with increased incubation temperature and extended incubation time.
