An acoustic wave sensor coated with an artificial biomimetic recognition element has been developed to selectively screen for nandrolone in the liquid phase. A highly specific covalently imprinted polymer (MIP) was spin coated on to one electrode of a quartz crystal microbalance (QCM) as a thin permeable film. Selective rebinding of the nandralone was observed as a frequency shift in the QCM for concentrations up to 0.2 ppm with the sensor binding shown to favour nandrolone over analogous compounds.
