Study shows nanoshells ideal as chemical nanosensors

... vastly enhance the Ramaneffect opens the door for biosensor designs that use a singlenanoshell, something that could prove useful for engineers who aretrying to probe the chemical processes within small structures such asindividual cells, or for the detection of very small amounts of amaterial, like a few mol...

Bioelectronic ‘signatures?hold key to DNA mutations

...vement in the development of the first noninvasive biosensor for diabetes, the FDA approved Gluco Watch, which monitors glucose levels through human sweat. “The ultimate goal is to make something similar to a hand-held glucose monitor for future genetic testing,?Wang says. “The electronic detection of DNA is ...

Aptamer-based Biosensor screens Air Force personnel and equipment

New technique rapidly detects illness-causing bacteria

...s, including Escherichia coli (E. coli ). The new biosensor works in a test tube and a positive result shows up as a red line on a strip, much like a pregnancy test. Newly designed software gives researchers a powerful tool for increasing the sensitivity of the analysis. The method may help researchers and c...

UT Southwestern researchers develop screening test for cells that activate immune system

A biosensor layered like lasagna

...sion of the glucose. Now that the glucose enzyme biosensor has passed the test, Lin said, it should be possible to build a similar sensor using other enzymes that react specifically with other biological chemicals, environmental agents or even microbes and their toxic byproducts. Lin and colleagues also repo...

Smell of success for nanobiosensors

...noses respond to different odours. This new nose biosensor is unusual in how it's made. By placing a layer of proteins that constitute the olfactory receptors in animal noses on a microelectrode and measuring the reaction when the proteins come into contact with different odorants, the system is capable of d...

Immune cell communication key to hunting viruses, Jefferson immunologists show
