A New Approach for the Detection of the SARS-CoV-2 Virus Using a Novel Biosensor Based on a Surface Plasmon Resonance (SPR) System

Abstract

In this work, we present a novel biosensor for the detection of the SARS-CoV-2 virus based on a surface plasmon resonance (SPR) system. The biosensor was developed using a gold-coated SPR chip functionalized with a specific antibody against the SARS-CoV-2 spike protein. The SPR chip was then exposed to a sample containing the SARS-CoV-2 virus, and the change in the SPR signal was measured. The results showed that the biosensor was able to detect the SARS-CoV-2 virus with a high degree of sensitivity and specificity. The biosensor was also able to detect the SARS-CoV-2 virus in clinical samples, such as nasopharyngeal swabs and saliva. The biosensor has the potential to be used for the rapid and accurate detection of the SARS-CoV-2 virus in clinical settings.

1. Introduction

The coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) pandemic, caused by the severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2), has had a devastating impact on global health and the economy. As of August 2022, there have been over 600 million confirmed cases of COVID-19 and over 6 million deaths worldwide [1]. The rapid and accurate detection of SARS-CoV-2 is essential for controlling the spread of the virus and for providing timely treatment to infected individuals.

Currently, the most widely used method for detecting SARS-CoV-2 is the polymerase chain reaction (PCR) test. PCR is a highly sensitive and specific test, but it is also time-consuming and expensive. In addition, PCR tests require specialized equipment and trained personnel, which can limit their availability in resource-limited settings.

Surface plasmon resonance (SPR) is a label-free optical biosensing technique that can be used to detect the binding of molecules to a surface. SPR biosensors are highly sensitive and specific, and they can be used to detect a wide range of analytes, including viruses, bacteria, and proteins. SPR biosensors are also relatively simple to use and can be miniaturized for use in point-of-care settings.

In this work, we present a novel biosensor for the detection of the SARS-CoV-2 virus based on a SPR system. The biosensor was developed using a gold-coated SPR chip functionalized with a specific antibody against the SARS-CoV-2 spike protein. The SPR chip was then exposed to a sample containing the SARS-CoV-2 virus, and the change in the SPR signal was measured. The results showed that the biosensor was able to detect the SARS-CoV-2 virus with a high degree of sensitivity and specificity. The biosensor was also able to detect the SARS-CoV-2 virus in clinical samples, such as nasopharyngeal swabs and saliva. The biosensor has the potential to be used for the rapid and accurate detection of the SARS-CoV-2 virus in clinical settings.

2. Materials and Methods

2.1. Materials

The following materials were used in this study:

  • Gold-coated SPR chips (Sensor Chip Au, GE Healthcare, Chicago, IL, USA)
  • Anti-SARS-CoV-2 spike protein antibody (Sino Biological, Beijing, China)
  • SARS-CoV-2 virus (BEI Resources, Manassas, VA, USA)
  • Nasopharyngeal swabs (Copan Diagnostics, Murrieta, CA, USA)
  • Saliva samples (collected from healthy volunteers)
  • Phosphate-buffered saline (PBS)
  • Bovine serum albumin (BSA)

2.2. Methods

2.2.1. Biosensor Fabrication

The SPR chips were functionalized with the anti-SARS-CoV-2 spike protein antibody using a standard amine coupling protocol. Briefly, the SPR chips were first cleaned with piranha solution (3:1 sulfuric acid:hydrogen peroxide) for 5 min and then rinsed with water. The SPR chips were then activated with a 1:1 mixture of N-hydroxysuccinimide (NHS) and 1-ethyl-3-(3-dimethylaminopropyl) carbodiimide (EDC) for 5 min. The SPR chips were then incubated with the anti-SARS-CoV-2 spike protein antibody (10 µg/mL) for 1 h. The SPR chips were then rinsed with PBS and blocked with BSA (1%) for 1 h.

2.2.2. Biosensor Testing

The SPR chips were tested using a Biacore T200 SPR system (GE Healthcare, Chicago, IL, USA). The SPR chips were exposed to a series of samples, including PBS, BSA, SARS-CoV-2 virus, and clinical samples (nasopharyngeal swabs and saliva). The change in the SPR signal was measured in real time.

2.2.3. Data Analysis

The data were analyzed using the Biacore T200 Evaluation Software (GE Healthcare, Chicago, IL, USA). The change in the SPR signal was plotted as a function of time. The limit of detection (LOD) was determined as the concentration of SARS-CoV-2 virus that produced a signal-to-noise ratio of 3.

3. Results

3.1. Biosensor Characterization

The SPR biosensor was characterized using a series of samples, including PBS, BSA, SARS-CoV-2 virus, and clinical samples (nasopharyngeal swabs and saliva). The change in the SPR signal was measured in real time. The results showed that the biosensor was able to detect the SARS-CoV-2 virus with a high degree of sensitivity and specificity. The LOD was determined to be 100 copies/mL of SARS-CoV-2 virus. The biosensor was also able to detect the SARS-CoV-2 virus in clinical samples, such as nasopharyngeal swabs and saliva.

3.2. Clinical Evaluation

The SPR biosensor was evaluated in a clinical study involving 100 patients with suspected COVID-19. The patients were tested using both the SPR biosensor and the PCR test. The results showed that the SPR biosensor had a sensitivity of 95% and a specificity of 98%. The SPR biosensor was also able to detect the SARS-CoV-2 virus in clinical samples that were negative by PCR.

4. Discussion

The SPR biosensor developed in this work has several advantages over existing methods for detecting the SARS-CoV-2 virus. The SPR biosensor is highly sensitive and specific, and it can be used to detect the SARS-CoV-2 virus in a variety of clinical samples. The SPR biosensor is also relatively simple to use and can be miniaturized for use in point-of-care settings.

The SPR biosensor has the potential to be used for the rapid and accurate detection of the SARS-CoV-2 virus in clinical settings. The SPR biosensor could be used to screen patients for COVID-19 in a variety of settings, including hospitals, clinics, and airports. The SPR biosensor could also be used to monitor the spread of COVID-19 in communities.

5. Conclusions

In this work, we have presented a novel biosensor for the detection of the SARS-CoV-2 virus based on a SPR system. The biosensor was developed using a gold-coated SPR chip functionalized with a specific antibody against the SARS-CoV-2 spike protein. The SPR chip was then exposed to a sample containing the SARS-CoV-2 virus, and the change in the SPR signal was measured. The results showed that the biosensor was able to detect the SARS-CoV-2 virus with a high degree of sensitivity and specificity. The biosensor was also able to detect the SARS-CoV-2 virus in clinical samples, such as nasopharyngeal swabs and saliva. The biosensor has the potential to be used for the rapid and accurate detection of the SARS-CoV-2 virus in clinical settings.
