Summary: 
Hydrophobic DNA (H-DNA) nano-film was formed as the surface modifier on a thin glass plate working as a slab optical waveguide (SOWF). Cytochrom c (cytc) molecules were immobilized from aqueous solution with direct contacting to the H-DNA nano-film for 30 minutes. From SOWG absorption spectral changes during automated solution exchange (SE) processes, it was found that about 28.1% of cytc molecules was immobilized in the H-DNA nano-film with keeping their reduction functionality by reducing reagent.
