  1. 1. Testing of micro-fluidic systems for Raman spectroscopic measurements on biological cells

    University essay from Luleå tekniska universitet/Institutionen för system- och rymdteknik

    Author : Malin Berger; [2018]
    Keywords : ;

    Abstract : Pulmonary Artery Hypertension (PAH) is a condition that can affect people as a consequence of infections or diseases such as lung disease, high blood pressure or pneumonia. When afflicted by these diseases, low oxygen content in the lung tissue causes the pulmonary arterial soft muscle cells (PASMC) located in the walls of the pulmonary arteries to chronically swell up.

  2. 2. Nanoplasmonic and Fluorescence Microscopy Studies of Cell Membrane Mimics

    University essay from Chalmers tekniska högskola/Institutionen för teknisk fysik

    Author : Björn Johansson; [2011]
    Keywords : nanoplasmonics; localized surface plasmon resonance; lipid bilayer; microfludics; biosensor; artificial cell membrane; fluorescence microscopy;

    Abstract : Despite the fact that two thirds of all pharmaceuticals today target membrane proteins, we know rather little about them since the complexity of the cell membrane makes membrane proteins difficult to study. Furthermore, since membrane proteins control transport of molecules across cell membranes, it is also difficult to study such transportation processes. READ MORE

  3. 3. Wet Organic Field Effect Transistor as DNA sensor

    University essay from Linköpings universitet/Institutionen för fysik, kemi och biologi

    Author : Yu-Jui Chiu; [2008]
    Keywords : Organic field effect transistor OFET ; Wet OFET; Poly 3-hexylthiophene P3HT ; DNA sensor; Conjugated polymer; Micro fluidic channel.;

    Abstract : Label-free detection of DNA has been successfully demonstrated on field effect transistor (FET) based devices. Since conducting organic materials was discovered and have attracted more and more research efforts by their profound advantages, this work will focus on utilizing an organic field effect transistor (OFET) as DNA sensor.

  4. 4. Modifying Polydimethylsiloxane (PDMS) surfaces

    University essay from Mälardalens högskola/Institutionen för biologi och kemiteknik

    Author : Carola Essö; [2007]
    Keywords : Surfactant; PDMS; protein; adsorption;

    Abstract : The aim of the project was to modify polydimethylsiloxane (PDMS) surfaces in order to minimize adsorption of proteins. PDMS is used in micro-fluidic devices that control the delivery of samples to a sensor chip in Biacore instrumentation. READ MORE
