  2. Tips for Selecting Biological Detergents

    Tips for Selecting Biological Detergents
    Tips for Selecting Biological Detergents Biological detergents are chemicals classified as surfactants, or surface-active molecules. Research scientists typically use these detergents in affecting the interactions within molecules of a biological sample being studied. These surfactants are used in biochemical research to target and manipulate the structure of membrane proteins without sacrificing their integrity or impacting their original function. Membrane proteins...

    Advances in Lab-on-a-Chip Technology: Ionophores & Enzymes in Biosensors
    Advances in Lab-on-a-Chip Technology Lab-on-a-chip (LOC) technology is a category of research microdevices that automate several lab techniques in one chip; in this case a chip typically measured at a few square centimeters. In addition, currently on trend are nanomaterials such as carbon nanotubes (a popular choice due to the chemical stability and strength of the material), used in the...
  9. Ion Exchange Membranes for Electrodialysis

    Ion Exchange Membranes for Electrodialysis
    Ion Exchange Membranes for Electrodialysis Ion exchange membranes (IEMs) are semi-permeable membranes that are used to control the type of dissolved ions or neutral molecules transported through an object. IEMs are manufactured from diverse materials, which serve a wide range of functions across different industries. More IEM applications are being innovated with the discovery of new suitable materials, which differ...
  10. Single-Use Biosensors for the Detection of Biomarkers

    Single-Use Biosensors for the Detection of Biomarkers
    Understanding Biosensors Biosensors are devices used in identifying a selective range of analytes (specific substances that require detection). The device comprises two elements: a biological component and physicochemical detector (also known as the transducer). Each biosensor functions by converting biological responses into readable electrical signals. This process is achieved by generating signatures proportional to the concentration of the analyte. The...
