Novel Photonic Technique Creates Micrometer Resolution Multi-sensor Arrays and Provides a New Approach to Coupling of Genes, Nucleic Acids, Peptide Hormones and Drugs to Nanoparticle Carriers

, , , , , ,
Photonic induced immobilisation is a novel patented technology resulting in spatially oriented and localised covalent coupling of biomolecules onto surfaces. Immobilisation has been achieved for a wide selection of proteins, e.g., human plasminogen, alkaline phosphatase, [...]

PCR-free DNA-based biosensing with polymeric optical hybridization transduction using micro- and submicron-magnetic bead captured on micro-electromagnetic traps

, , , , , ,
DNA-based biosensor technologies for rapid, sensitive and affordable identification of genetic material are in constant evolution and show great potential in various fields. The ability for such methods to be used directly at point-of-care settings [...]

Fabrication of impedimetric sensors for label-free Point-of-Care immunoassay cardiac marker systems, with microfluidic blood flow delivery, and results telemetry to PDA

, , , , , ,
Our recent work has demonstrated the capability to fabricate nanoscale interdigitated electrode-type patterns in gold, using a Focussed Ion Beam. We have also shown the capability to nanotemplate gold, which will allow direct protein attachment, [...]
