Anodic porous alumina (APA) is a well known geometrically orderedinorganic oxide, honeycomb shaped, grown from ultra-pure aluminiumby anodic oxidation. This material was used in this work as substratefor biological macromolecules hosting, specifically deposited to workusing the NAPPA technology. After a surface characterization, intended to verify the compatibility of the micro-structured inorganicoxide with the NAPPA method, two detection approaches were tested, using fluorescence and electrochemically. In both cases the detection ofthe macromolecules were successful, even if a numerical evaluationstill has to be performed.
