New paper in Biosensors and Bioelectronics

Siti and colleagues have recently published in Biosensors and Bioelectronics their work on the development of l-lactate dehydrogenase biosensor based on porous silicon resonant microcavities as fluorescence enhancers. The up-regulation of l-lactate dehydrogenase (LDH), an...

New paper in Acta Biomateriala

Soraya and colleagues have recently published in Acta Biomateriala their studies demonstrating the value of cell microarray platforms to decipher the combinatorial interactions at play in stem cell niche microenvironments. Cell microarrays are a novel...

New ARC Linkage project granted

Nico has recently been awarded a new ARC Linkage project on Lab-on-a-chip mass spectrometry tools for testing illicit drugs. Lead Chief Investigator: Professor Nicolas Voelcker Partner Organisations: Perkin Elmer Pty Ltd/E G and G...

New paper in Chemical Communications

Martin and colleagues have recently published in Chemical Communications a novel surface modification for porous silicon (pSi). Hydroxyl-terminated pSi surfaces are modified with a hydrosilane via Si–H activation using the Lewis acid catalyst tris(pentafluorophenyl) borane....

New paper in Journal of Materials Chemistry B

Roshan and colleagues have recently published in Journal of Materials Chemistry B their work employing surface-initiated atom transfer radical polymerisation (ATRP) to graft thermo-responsive copolymers of oligo(ethylene glycol) methacrylates from the surface of diatom biosilica...

Nanosafety Workshop

The Nanosafety Workshop, which was organized by the Mawson Institute and the CERAR, was held during the 27th and 28th of April at Adelaide (University of South Australia). The workshop attracted more than 68...

New paper in Chemical Research in Toxicology

Angela and colleagues have recently published  in Chemical Research in Toxicology their work revealing a connection between DNA-nanoparticle (NP) binding and in vitro DNA damage induced by citrate- and branched polyethylenimine-coated silver nanoparticles (c-AgNPs and...

New paper in Nano Research

Morteza and colleagues have recently published  in Nano Research their work on new non-viral vector by means of chitosan coated oligonucleotide-loaded porous silicon (pSi) nanoparticles (NPs) for therapeutic oligonucleotide delivery. The results suggest that...
