Ambient mass spectrometry continues to grow as a high-throughput alternative to more traditional hyphenated methods, playing an increasingly-relevant role in the growing field of metabolomics.
Chemiluminescence molecular probe with intrinsic auto-inductive amplification: incorporation of chemiexcitation in a quinone-methide elimination
A new signal amplification system with an auto-inductive mode of action and distinct chemiluminescence output was developed.
Development of a reversible fluorescent probe for reactive sulfur species, sulfane sulfur, and its biological application
We developed a reversible fluorescent probe for sulfane sulfur. This probe enabled us to monitor concentration changes of sulfane sulfur.
Efficacious fluorescence turn-on probe for high-contrast imaging of human cells overexpressing quinone reductase activity
A turn-on substrate probe is activated by an oxidoreductase, offering fluorescence images of cancer cells with unprecedented positive signal-to-negative background ratios.
Measurement of the hematocrit using paper-based microfluidic devices
We developed a paper-based microfluidic device that enables the transport of cells and measurement of the hematocrit of whole blood.
Protein cross-linking capillary electrophoresis at increased throughput for a range of protein–protein interactions
Here protein cross-linking capillary electrophoresis is demonstrated for a wide range of protein–protein interactions including weak and multimeric oligomers.
Sensitive detection of formamidopyrimidine-DNA glycosylase activity based on target-induced self-primed rolling circle amplification and magnetic nanoprobes
We developed a novel approach to sensitive detection of formamidopyrimidine-DNA glycosylase activity based on target-induced selfprimed rolling circle amplification and magnetic nanoprobes.
Polyacrylamide gel electrophoresis of semiconductor quantum dots and their bioconjugates: materials characterization and physical insights from spectrofluorimetric detection
A new method for the characterization of quantum dots and their conjugates reveals details that go unseen with other electrophoretic methods.
Development of a label-free Raman imaging technique for differentiation of malaria parasite infected from non-infected tissue
This work uses Raman in resonance with Fe-containing porphyrin chromophores to clearly differentiate P. berghei infected & non-infected spleen tissue.
An automated optofluidic biosensor platform combining interferometric sensors and injection moulded microfluidics
This work presents an on-chip valve-based microfluidic automation module, capable of performing the complex fluid handling required for photonic biosensors.
Pre-concentration by liquid intake by paper (P-CLIP): a new technique for large volumes and digital microfluidics
Pre-concentration by liquid intact by paper (P-CLIP) is a new technique that allows digital microfluidics to handle large volumes of dilute analyte.
A field-deployed surface plasmon resonance (SPR) sensor for RDX quantification in environmental waters
A field-deployable surface plasmon resonance (SPR) sensor is reported for the detection RDX at ppb concentration in environmental samples.
Quantitative detection of codeine in human plasma using surface-enhanced Raman scattering via adaptation of the isotopic labelling principle
In this study surface-enhanced Raman scattering (SERS) combined with the isotopic labelling (IL) principle has been used for the quantification of codeine spiked into both water and human plasma.
Mapping minimum reflection distribution of surface plasmon resonance with a complex refractive index
A holistic approach was taken to consider the dielectric properties of absorbing labels and their effect on the minimum reflection is mapped for the Kretschmann SPR configuration.
