Biomimetic architectures for the impedimetric discrimination of influenza virus phenotypes are tailored by a self-assembly process on gold substrates. Incorporated sialic acid molecules as sensing entities mimic receptors found on target cells of the influenza A virus. The resulting detector rapidly discriminates between avian and human strains of influenza A virus, acting as a reagentless, label-free diagnostic device for influenza phenotyping, which is important in surveillance and prediction of pandemics.
