  1. Silver Nanoparticle Socks

    10 Jan 2017 | | Contributor(s):: Pennsylvania State Univeristy

    This lab will allow students to use the pure silver nanoparticles they synthesize to create antibacterial socks. They will compare their socks with socks that have been treated with a commercial silver spray, socks that have been treated in a factory, and a control that was not been...

  2. The Blood Glucose Monitor

    28 Oct 2016 | | Contributor(s):: Steven Thedford, Samantha Andrews, Nancy Healy

    Students are introduced to glucose monitors, how these biosensors are being improved with naotechnology, and they test glucose levels. The purpose of the lab is to measure the glucose concentration of several synthetic blood and urine samples to determine which patients have diabetes. Students...

  3. Using Gold Nanoparticles for Bacterial Detection

    28 Oct 2016 | | Contributor(s):: Michael L. Falk

    This lab is designed to introduce students to gold nanoparticles and some of their applications. Students will create gold nanoparticles (GNPs) and learn the potential disease detection uses of GNPs, conduct research on modifying GNPs to be specific to other molecules, and complete a simulation...
