  1. 1. QCM-D based biosensing – exploring the possibilities

    Author : Erik Nilebäck; [2011]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; cell morphology; drug discovery; plasminogen; protein conformation; viscoelastisicity; QCM-D; oligo ethylene glycol ; Quartz crystal microbalance with dissipation monitoring; streptavidin;

    Abstract : We are constantly increasing our understanding of all biological systems and how these highly complex systems interact with each other. The high degree of complexity of these systems can be investigated in greater and greater detail by increasingly sophisticated sensing techniques. READ MORE

  2. 2. QCM-D with focus on variations in oscillation amplitude

    Author : Malin Edvardsson; [2006]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; shear oscillation; actuator; Quartz crystal microbalance; amplitude; streptavidin; lipid vesicles; biosensor; colloidal particles; size distribution; QCM-D; protein binding; DNA hybridization; dual harmonic; lipid bilayer formation;

    Abstract : The QCM-D (quartz crystal microbalance with dissipation monitoring) technique is an increasingly popular tool in studies of molecular interactions at interfaces, e.g. binding/unbinding reactions at surfaces, studies of thin film properties, and conformational changes. READ MORE

  3. 3. Cross-linking and surface properties of EHEC and Starch -a QCM-D study

    Author : Jesper Hedin; [2009]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Hydrogel; GMA; HM-EHEC; Starch; vicoelastic properties; Imidazole; QCM-D; SPR; EHEC;

    Abstract : The increase of the green house gases and the crude oil price has resulted in a willingness to change the raw material in many industries from petroleum-based polymers to natural polymers. One such natural polymer is starch. Today, starch is used in the glue industry in wallpaper pastes. READ MORE

  4. 4. Miniaturized cell and flow reactor for QCM-D measurements on fluids and soft matter

    Author : Gabriel Ohlsson; [2009]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; soft matter materials; confined volume; Nanocell; QCM-D sensing; miniaturized flow reactor; lipid bilayer; thin films; liquid crystals;

    Abstract : Thin soft matter films are frequently used in many technical applications, where phenomena taking place in the interfacial regions, control film properties and functionality. In order to optimize the latter there is a clear need of methods and tools for probing diverse physical properties of thin soft matter films confined in a nano-sized region. READ MORE

  5. 5. Probing Interactions between Bio-Fibre Components

    University dissertation from Stockholm : KTH

    Author : Niklas Nordgren; KTH.; [2007]
