Dipstick assays using silver nanoparticles (AgNPs) stabilized by a thin calix[4]arene-based coating were developed and used for the detection of Anti-SARS-CoV-2 IgG in clinical samples. The calixarene-based coating enabled the covalent bioconjugation of the SARS-CoV-2 Spike Protein via the classical EDC/sulfo-NHS procedure. It further conferred remarkable stability to the resulting bioconjugated AgNPs, as no degradation was observed over several months. In comparison with lateral-flow immunoassays (LFIAs) based on classical gold nanoparticles, our AgNP-based system constitutes a clear step …
