  • Electrochemical biosensors for environmental monitoring

    The challenge for the monitoring of environmental hazards such as pollutants, herbicides, pesticides and toxins caused by expanding industrialisation and application of new intensive agricultural technologies is to develop efficient tools that offer precision, sensitivity, and speed and ease of operation in situ and avoid consequently risks for both human and environmental health. In this ...

  • Biosensor with total internal reflection imaging ellipsometry

    In order to monitor multiple protein reaction processes simultaneously, a biosensor based on imaging ellipsometry operated in the total internal reflection mode is proposed. It could be realised as an automatic analysis for protein interaction processes with real-time label-free method. Its principle and methodology as well as a demonstration for its applications are presented.Keywords: ...

  • Affinity–based biosensors for heavy metal detection

    In recent years, there has been a pressing need for fast and reliable methods for environmental monitoring. Among the various pollutants, the heavy metals are some of the most harmful because these substances are non–biodegradable and retained by the ecological system. Conventional analytical techniques for heavy metals imply high cost, trained personnel and the repute that they are mostly ...

  • Design and analysis of nanowire sensor array for prostate cancer detection

    Prostate cancer is one of the major cancer affecting men in India. After lung cancer, prostate cancer has caused large number of deaths in India. Nanowire is the biosensor used for detection of cancer. In this paper, we present a design of nanowire array sensor for prostate cancer detection. A sensor array of 8 × 8 elements is designed to capture the PSA present in the blood that helps in ...

  • Development of exobiopolymer-based biosensor for detection of phosphate in water

    The present study was conducted to develop a biosensor by exploiting phosphate-binding capacity of exobiopolymer (EBP) produced by Acinetobacter sp. An environmental isolate of EBP-producing Acinetobacter sp. was subjected to transposon (Tn5) mutagenesis to overproduce EBP and afford improved phosphate selectivity. A mutant producing the highest amount of EBP with high ...

  • Toward colloid-based biosensors for SNP genotyping and personalised medicine applications

    Therapeutic drugs can assist some patients, however, other individuals may exhibit no response. Furthermore, a drug that is normally considered to be safe can have toxic effects in a small proportion of the population, occasionally causing death. Many altered drug responses depend on the genetic constitution of the recipient. The analysis of specific DNA markers within the genome of an individual ...

  • Novel carotenoid-based biosensor for simple visual detection of arsenite: characterization and preliminary evaluation for environmental application

    A novel whole-cell arsenite biosensor was developed using the photosynthetic bacterium Rhodopseudomonas palustris no. 7 and characterized. A sensor plasmid containing the operator-promoter region of the ars operon and arsR gene from Escherichia coli and the crtI gene from R. palustris no. 7 was introduced into a blue-green mutant with crtI deleted, R. palustris no. 711. The biosensor changed ...

  • Selected examples in nano–sciences and nano–technologies at FEMTO–ST

    This paper contributes selected examples based on the research and development of sub–micrometric and nanoscale structures at FEMTO–ST. In particular, exploitation of bandgap materials such as lithium niobate is a specialty of the institute and is applied in active photonic and phononic devices. Another area of active research concerns instrumentation at the microscale and nanoscale. More ...

  • Online Total Bacteria Monitor compared with ATP and flow cytometry - Case Study

    Alkaline Phosphatase Enzyme Activity Measurement as a Robust on-line Monitoring Assay for Water Quality Assessment. Micro organisms maintain their growth by producing enzymes in order to provide low molecular weight inorganic compounds. These compounds could be taken up into the cells from high molecular weight organic compounds which cannot be directly utilized by bacteria. Microbial ...

  • Sensaguard Online Water Monitoring - Case Study

    Clean water is an increasingly scarce, essential resource nowadays and the demand for it is growing continuously. Though drinking water is checked regularly, the analysis is limited to the water quality at the time of analysis and the specific substances being tested for. Moreover, the threats of contamination and contaminated sites are growing steadily as more and more unknown and new ...

  • Adhesion and survival of electrogenic cells on gold nanopillar array electrodes

    Cell–electrode interfaces play a critical role in extracellular recording. Enlarging the electrode surface area with nanostructures yields higher signal–to–noise–ratios due to lower interface impedance. Adhesion and viability of various cell types on large–scale gold nanopillar electrodes to improve cell–electrode coupling were investigated. Cardiac muscle and human embryonic kidney cells ...

  • Tech update: Plant instrumentation - food engineering

    Sensors and other devices are the foot soldiers in automation architecture, but most food and beverage manufacturers still are looking for full value. You know an equipment category has arrived when it starts getting its own industry-specific center. For the food production sensors that do the heavy lifting in instrumentation technology, that day could arrive earlier rather than ...
