Molecular Template and Method for Producing Same
Publication date: 2014
The method and apparatus for detecting a chemical substance of the present invention perform the detection of a chemical substance by capturing the chemical substance with a capturing body prepared by utilizing a molecular template. The present invention provides a chemical sensor easy to use for general consumers at home as well as for medical personnel (medical doctors, medical technicians and nurses). In particular, an object of the present invention is to diagnose the symptom of stress disorder by detecting, with high sensitivity, a steroid hormone such as cortisol closely related to stress disorder, and to herewith contribute to the prevention and early treatment of stress disorder. The present invention provides a molecular template for a steroid hormone, including a polymer to interact with the steroid hormone. The polymer preferably includes, in the polymerization unit thereof, two or more functional groups to interact with the steroid hormone.
