  1. 1. Nucleic acid analysis tools Novel technologies and biomedical applications

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Department of Biochemistry and Biophysics, Stockholm University

    Author : Iván Hernández-Neuta; Stockholms universitet.; [2017]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Nucleic acid analysis; padlock probes; selector probes; rolling circle amplification; microfluidics; single-molecule detection; digital quantification; fluorescence microscopy; mobile phone microscopy; molecular diagnostics; virology; biokemi; Biochemistry;

    Abstract : Nucleic acids are fundamental molecules of living organisms functioning essentially as the molecular information carriers of life. From how an organism is built to how it responds to external conditions, all of it, can be found in the form of nucleic acid sequences inside every single cell of every life form on earth. READ MORE

  2. 2. Padlock Probe-Based Nucleic Acid Amplification Tests Point-of-care Diagnostics of Infectious Diseases

    University dissertation from Department of Biochemistry and Biophysics, Stockholm University

    Author : Sibel Ciftci; Stockholms universitet.; [2019]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Nucleic Acid Amplification; Isothermal Amplification Methods; Padlock Probes; Rolling Circle Amplification; Molecular Diagnostics; Infectious Disease Diagnostics; Virus; Point-of-Care; biokemi; Biochemistry;

    Abstract : Recent advancements in molecular biology and biotechnology have pushed the field of molecular diagnostics much further to benefit the society towards smart access for rapid and simplified health care. In this context, point-of-care (PoC) technologies that bring the inventions in diagnostics closer to bedside settings draw attention. READ MORE

  3. 3. Single Molecule Detection Microfluidic Automation and Digital Quantification

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Malte Kühnemund; Uppsala universitet.; [2016]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; single molecule; digital; rolling circle amplification; magnetic particle; padlock probe; microfluidics; resistive pulse sensing; lab on chip; mobile phone microscopy; enrichment; sequencing;

    Abstract : Much of recent progress in medical research and diagnostics has been enabled through the advances in molecular analysis technologies, which now permit the detection and analysis of single molecules with high sensitivity and specificity. Assay sensitivity is fundamentally limited by the efficiency of the detection method used for read-out. READ MORE
