    Abstract

    Pattern formation during evaporation of biofluids has numerous biomedical applications, e.g., in disease identification. The drying of a bidisperse colloidal droplet involves formation of coffee ring patterns owing to the deposition of constituent particles. In the present study, we examine the distinctly different pattern formations during the drying of a colloidal solution depending on the nature of the constituent proteins. The pattern formations of two oppositely charged proteins, namely HSA and lysozyme, have been studied in the presence of fluorescence polystyrene beads of two different sizes (providing better image contrast for further analysis). The variation of pattern formation has been studied by varying the concentrations of the proteins as well as the particles. Furthermore, using image analysis, the patterns are segmented into different regions for quantification. To explain the variations in the patterns, we delve into the interplay of the interactions, especially the capillary and the DLVO forces (between the particles and the substrate). The developed methodology based on the coffee ring effect may be used to identify individual proteins.
