    Cytochromes P450 are a large superfamily of heme-thiolate enzymes involved in the metabolism of many different organic substrates such as drugs, fatty acids and toxic compounds. The aim of this work is to analyse the binding between the cytochrome P4501A2, in solution and in gel-matrix, and its substrate (clozapine), utilising voltammetric tests. The interaction measurements were carried out using... View full abstract»

    The principles of attenuation of the light intensity due to multiple reflections are realised in a planar silicon oxide (SiO2)/silicon nitride (Si3N4) waveguiding structure for the purpose of developing optical biosensors with improved sensitivity. The analysis of the experimental data shows that the large difference in refractive indices of core and cladding layer... View full abstract»

    The development of a computer-controlled piezomanipulation system is presented for biomedical applications involving cells manipulation. An application of the developed system to intracytoplasmic sperm injection (ICSI) is presented. The hardware setup and the control strategies are described in full detail to illustrate the advantages of this approach compared to manual injection methods. The syst... View full abstract»

    Carbon nanotubes are a significant addition to the emerging field of nanotube biotechnology. The biocompatibility, high structural integrity, and unique electronic and mechanical properties of carbon nanotubes complement or surpass those of self-assembled lipid nanotubes, peptide nanotubes, and template-synthesised nanotubes (metals, polymers, semiconductors, and carbons). Carbon nanotubes are can... View full abstract»

  • Theoretical study of stability problems for transport in a deformable microfabricated channel

    Publication Year: 2003, Page(s):21 - 23

    We investigate the stability problem related to the basic flows induced by peristaltic transport within the bounded deformable walls which are common in micro- and/or nanobiotechnological applications. The neutral stability boundary is obtained by solving the relevant Orr-Sommerfeld equation via a verified preconditioned complex-matrix solver. The critical Reynolds number (when the wall is deforma... View full abstract»

    The possibility of constructing high-density parallel computing architectures using molecular electronics technology is explored. By employing molecular computing devices, new circuit/system integration could be realised. To clarify the proposed concept, an experimental model of a redox microarray is presented. A first experimental system for a redox microarray consists of a two-dimensional array ... View full abstract»
