Enzyme-responsive degradable polymers are of great interest both from fundamental science and real-world application perspectives. Enzyme-responsive polymers, because of their ability to interface with and sense biological processes, can have many applications in systems that operate at the edge...
The detection of biological molecules is a useful tool for diagnostics, research, and general health monitoring. By measuring concentrations of certain key components of biological samples, vital information can be gained as to the condition of the entire biological system. Diseases such as...
The field of conducting polymers and mainly organic electrochemical transistors (OECT) have been investigated for bioelectronics applications. Advantages such as conformability, high quality electrical contact, ease of fabrication and biocompatibility made OECTs a great potential of future bio...
The expansion of the fluorescent protein (FP) colour palette through discovery of more species possessing FPs and by subjecting them to intensive protein engineering efforts has greatly aided the effectiveness of FP-based biosensor designs. Currently, the main FP-based methods for detecting...
Fluorescent proteins (FP) and FP-based biosensors have become essential tools for cell biology and neuroscience research. This thesis describes efforts to engineer new FPs with red emission and novel genetically encoded biosensors based on red FPs. Directed evolution and semi-rational design are...
The discovery and subsequent applications of fluorescent proteins (FPs) launched a new era for live cell fluorescence imaging. The design and developments of FP-based indicators have further solidified the versatility of FPs and rendered them as indispensable tools in life science research now...
Optical imaging of membrane potentials has become an immensely popular approach to study neuronal activity. Over the past decades, a number of voltage indicators have been introduced including the voltage sensitive fluorescent protein (VSFP) and microbial rhodopsins. However, most of these...
The development of rapid detection techniques to be applied at the point of use, has been gaining significant attention in the recent years. Rapid techniques are important and preferable methods in healthcare and environment sector due to the advantages they offer such as low-cost and reduced...
Development of an optical biosensor based on Mach-Zehnder Interferometry for detection of Listeria monocytogenesDownload
Label-free optical biosensors are widely used for the detection of pathogens due to their low-cost, real-time detection and high sensitivity. A Mach-Zehnder Interferometer (MZI) based biosensor has been developed for the detection of gram-positive bacteria, Listeria monocytogenes. An extensive...
The discovery of green fluorescent protein (GFP) from the Aequorea victoria Jellyfish followed by the extensive efforts of protein engineers to produce other fluorescent proteins (FPs) spanning the visible color spectrum made fluorescent proteins indispensable biochemical tools in the scientific...
