Nanomaterials in Biosensing Using Ion Selective Field Effect Transistors and Metal Particles
out of 5 stars
30 Jul 2008 | | Contributor(s):: Nalam Madhusudhana Rao
The multifunctionality, multilayerable architechture and size of nanomaterials offer tremendous opportunities in developing sensing platforms. Ion Selective Field Effect Transistors (ISFET) are solid state and robust pH/ion sensing devices with excellent “voltage vs. ion concentration”...
Nanocomposite-Modified Electrodes for Sensing Biological Analytes
30 Jul 2008 | | Contributor(s):: V. Yegnaraman
Electrochemical sensing of analytes is mostly enabled by transducers based on potentiometry and amperometry. In this, design of sensing (working) electrode is of utmost importance since it only decides the sensitivity and selectivity features of the sensor. Chemical modification of the electrode...

Self-association of peptides and proteins: Retrospect and prospects
30 Jul 2008 | | Contributor(s):: R. Nagaraj
The ability of peptides and proteins to form aggregates was known from the dawn of protein and peptide chemistry! It was often considered a nuisance and attention was directed towards disaggregating them to ensure dissolution particularly in aqueous solution. X-ray crystallography has indicated...
Use of Ceramic based biomaterials for their application in vitro osteogenic differentiation
30 Jul 2008 | | Contributor(s):: Gopal Pande
The use of bioceramics for preparation of implants and prosthesis for applications in orthopedic surgery has been done over several years. Recently new formulations for making substrates and coatings using ceramic material such as alumina, bioglass or zirconia have been done for improved...
Nanobiotechnology – a different perspective
22 Jul 2008 | | Contributor(s):: Murali Sastry
The study of the synthesis, exotic properties, assembly/packaging and potential commercial application of nanomaterials is an extremely important topic of research that is expected to have far-reaching global impact. The focus of my talk will be on an emerging branch of nanotechnology that...
Quality by Design and Process Analytical Technology for Pharmaceutical Manufacturing in the 21st Century
21 Jul 2008 | | Contributor(s):: Stephen R. Byrn
PAT or Process Analytical Technology is an initiative and guidance from the U.S. FDA to encourage modernization of pharmaceutical manufacturing. In reality, PAT is a subset of the larger concept of Quality by Design which is the implementation of design concepts for pharmaceutical dosage forms...
Strategies for Preparation and Manufacture of Polymer-based Nanoparticulate Formulations
Nanoparticles hold great promise for drug delivery applications. Several polymer-based formulations containing nanoparticles are in late phase development or on the market. In fact, polymer dispersions provide one of the best methods to prepare nanoparticles of small-molecule organic drugs....
Multiplex Detection of Cell Surface Markers using Plasmonic Sensors
21 Jul 2008 | | Contributor(s):: Joseph M K Irudayaraj
Gold nanorod molecular probes (GNrMPs) were designed and fabricated for multiplex identification of cell surface markers in HBECs. Cells were probed directly using dark field microscopy integrated with a spectral imager for simultaneous detection of up to three surface markers. The...

High-Aspect-Ratio Micromachining of Titanium: Enabling New Functionality and Opportunity in Micromechanical Systems Through Greater Materials Selection
18 Jun 2008 | | Contributor(s):: Masa Rao
Traditionally, materials selection has been limited in high-aspect-ratio micromechanical applications, due primarily to the predominance of microfabrication processes and infrastructure dedicated to silicon. While silicon has proven to be an excellent material for many of these applications, no...
Ionic Selectivity in Channels: complex biology created by the balance of simple physics
05 Jun 2008 | | Contributor(s):: Bob Eisenberg
An important class of biological molecules—proteins called ionic channels—conduct ions (like Na+ , K+ , Ca2+ , and Cl− ) through a narrow tunnel of fixed charge (‘doping’). Ionic channels control the movement of electric charge and current across biological membranes and so play a role in...
