A breakthrough patent awarded to a New Jersey Institute of Technology (NJIT) researcher will enable manufacturers to create a device to detect miniscule amounts of airborne pollutants. Using computer chip technology, Somenath Mitra, PhD, professor and chair of NJIT’s Department of Chemistry and Environmental Sciences, has developed and patented what could eventually become a simple […]
Scientists of the University of Twente (The Netherlands) succeed in speeding up the fluid flow in a micro channel using tiny and rapidly imploding gas bubbles that also provide a new way of mixing fluids within a lab-on-a-chip, without the need of complicated external components. The scientists led by Dr. Claus-Dieter Ohl of the MESA+ […]
The large-scale studies of structure and function of proteins (proteomics) are performed using a variety of analytical techniques from two-dimensional gel electrophoresis, immunoaffinity chromatography to tandem and MALDI-TOF mass spectrometry. The words “large-scale” in proteomics definition refers to the fact that the number of proteins that need to be evaluated is enormous. For example, the […]
Nano HPLC is a relatively new development in chromatography world driven by recent advancements in proteomics that would require decreasing of inner diameter (ID) of liquid chromatography (LC) column to allow for a smaller sample amount and to increase sensitivity.
