Ion-channel sensors which mimic naturally occurring pore-forming proteins can be used to detect small metal ions and organic molecules. A chamber with a lipid bilayer hosting ion-channels produced by protein insertion constitutes such a sensor. Each analyte produces a characteristic signal pattern during its migration from one section of the chamber to another through the ion-channels. A four chamber ion-channel sensor array is built for accurate analyte detection. We have developed spectral and low rank models for representing ion-channel signals and proposed a analyte detection framework using sensor array.

   
  Key Points
   
  Transform domain features feature were proposed to characterize ion-channel signals.
  Robust PSD features obtained with low rank assumption lead to higher classification rates.
  PSD features were also used to estimate number of channels.
  Decision level fusion of ion-channel sensor array produced lower false hit rates.
