AbstractMicrocantilever-based sensors are mechanical sensors that have been functionalized either chemically or biologically to adapt for sensing specific analytes or biomolecules. Several micromechanical-based sensing tools have been verified by their detection capabilities for DNA hybridization, protein, antibody and living cells. In this work we present new insight on the behavior of cantilevers that was made possible using a fully automated system for parallel microcantilever-based biosensing. The core of our detection system is based on DVD-ROM optical drive and cantilever sensors. To illustrate the system we demonstrate detection of urokinase Plasminogen Activator Receptor inflammatory biomarker (suPAR).
