    A mathematical model based on finite-element technique is developed for predicting the transport and capture of multiple magnetic nanoparticles in a microfluidic system that consists of a microfluidic channel enclosed by a permanent magnet. The trajectories and trapping efficiencies are calculated for multiple magnetic nanoparticles when released in the microsystem. It is demonstrated that not onl... View full abstract»

    This theoretical model predicts that the activity of multiple enzymes may be controlled simultaneously with superior efficiency in nanosized reactors by adjusting pH. Multistep enzymatic processes employed for various purposes including organic biotransformation may require application of multiple reactions and isolation of intermediates. Sequential activity switching would offer substantial advan... View full abstract»

    Surface plasmon resonance imaging (SPRI) is a useful tool for the study of surface biomolecular interactions allowing for label-free detection and elegant instrumentation. SPRI imaging system is described in this review with an emphasis on recent applications with examples of different biological interactions and high throughput analysis. Signal amplification in SPRI using nanoparticle and wavegui... View full abstract»
