Paper Abstract

The investigation of specific interactions in biological media requires the development of sensors, combining principles of biochemical recognition and a suitable transduction. In this work a quartz crystal microbalance system was coated with highly ordered lipid films. It was shown that this application can be taken as a model system to study the adsorption behavior of supramolecular structures. To simulate biomimetic structures, we used a combination of `Self Assembling' and `Langmuir-Blodgett' techniques. Glycolipids were incorporated into LB-films as target structures to mimic a native glycocalix.
