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

    Author : Erik Nilebäck; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    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; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : 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. QCM-D – with focus on biosensing in biomolecular and cellular systems

    Author : Erik Nilebäck; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; NATURAL SCIENCES; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; QCM-D; biomolecular interactions; cell-surface interaction; glycosaminoglycans; viscoelasticity; cell morphology; Quartz crystal microbalance with dissipation monitoring; surface chemistry; protein conformation;

    Abstract : The high degree of complexity in biological systems is being investigated in greater and greater detail by increasingly sophisticated sensing approaches. The quartz crystal microbalance with dissipation monitoring (QCM-D) technique stands out in this context, by probing the viscoelastic properties at interfaces. READ MORE

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

    Author : Jesper Hedin; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : 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

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

    Author : Gabriel Ohlsson; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; NATURAL SCIENCES; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; 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
