Other Research Projects
A broader plaform for investigating mass transport in biological systems is under development. This relies on optimised bio- and chemical sensors, and is intended as a robust assay capability and one that is available more broadly through commercial development.
A China collaboration has been set up to investigate the use of transducers for determining the mass transport of oxygen and metabolites in cell loaded avascular 3-D constructs as used in tissue engineering and biohybrid organ replacement systems. Computational advances have provided exact solutions to Fickian diffusion…
Photonic optical crystals siginficantly advance the optical and waveguide capabilities of current fiberoptic platforms. Based on this new technology, an international collaboration has been set up which in part is developing optical chemical and biosensors. Through use of traditional chemistries and receptor molecules, it is…
Project awarded to Camstech Ltd, a spin out company of the Biosensors Group aimed at Raman interrogation of immuoaffinity binding reactions.
Microfluidics for cell monitoring EPSRC funded project on microfluidic devices as microbioreactors with associated sensor based monitoring
Controlled flow at low dimensions enables exceptional manipulation of solute ad cellular transport processes. Through this means it has been possible to interface liquid-liquid flows with high stability. The current sudies utilise polymerisation substrates to create intra channel barrier micro-membranes. These are variously used…
Implantable sensors and remote monitoring NEAT funded project on low power wireless transmission for invasive sensors
The project looks at a broad platform for the integration of various electrophysiological, chemical and biosensors with transmittor platforms for low power communication to external monitor systems. This would enable remote tracking of dynamic biochemical, cardiac and other changes for rapid therapeutic intervention. The work…
This project aims to develop a new fabrication process to create functional molecular patterns within 3D hydrogels. These anisotropic hydrogels would enable the precise in vitro recreation of complex biological scenarios found in healthy or diseased tissues with applications in drug screening, improve biological studies, and tissue engineering.
Elite athlete monitoring using a range of invivo and exvivo chemicals and biosensors for metabolite and ion measurement
A collaborative programme on elite athlete monitoring has commenced with Loughborough University and Imperial College. This involves use of a range of in vivo and exvivo chemicals and biosensors for metabolite and ion measurement.
