SENSORS UNIT

NANOTECHNOLOGY-BASED ELECTROCHEMICAL SENSORS

• Producer of screen-printed electrodes modified with various nanomaterials.

• Nano-electrochemical CVD modified screen-printed electrodes.

• Nano-electrochemical E-Beam Lithography modified SPEs.

RESEARCH FOCUS AREAS


Electrode Fabrication: Various methods  are  investigated with the  aim to find electrical conducting surfaces and stable films.

Platforms development: Investigate different biomolecule immobilisation protocols for various applications.

Analyte identification:  Identify  analytes  as  required;  i.e.  Outbreaks  and define mode of detection for various applications.

Signal amplification: Incorporating  nanomaterials and study  their  effect towards enhancement of analyte detection, e.g. Increased sensitivity.

Materials characterisation: Investigate  the mode  and the  orientation the biomolecules takes on the electrode surface.

Surface chemistry and characterisation: Apply surface-based techniques to investigate and confirm the presence of these nanomaterials on electrodes.

APPLICATION OF INTEREST

• Early detection of disease and/or virus infections.

• Screening of patients at remote and rural settings where electricity is scarce.

• Monitoring and surveillance of communicable diseases or virus outbreaks.

• Quality assurance at places where food stuffs and personnel exchanges take place (e.g. border control stations).

PRODUCTS AND SERVICES

• Carbon screen printed electrodes
• Customised screen printed electrodes
• Use of the AD1520 Aspirate / Dispense Platform which is able to dispense to nanolitre volumes
