  1. 1. Polyelectrolyte Brush Electrodes for Protein Capture and Release

    Author : Gustav Ferrand-Drake Del Castillo; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; electrochemistry.; pH-responsive interfaces; Polyelectrolyte brushes; protein immobilization;

    Abstract : Stimuli-responsive polyelectrolyte brushes switch as a function of pH between a charged and neutral state that affects their electrostatic interactions with other charged molecules like proteins. Adjustment of the pH results in the binding of large quantities of proteins making polyelectrolyte brushes widely used as biointerfaces. READ MORE

  2. 2. Utilizing Solid Phase Cloning, Surface Display And Epitope Information for Antibody Generation and Characterization

    Abstract : The birth of microsystems set the ground for technologies never imagined before, for it is not only the small size what characterizes the miniaturized systems, but unique phenomena arise in the micro scale. This thesis relates to one such unique phenomenon, inertial focusing, a phenomenon that occurs in microfluidic systems if very special conditions are met and that allows for fine manipulation of particles in fluid samples.
