SuNS microarray as novel biosensor for clinical diagnostics.
Poster Jun 28, 2011
Pisanelli B., Dattilo D., Chetta M., Carducci F., De Ceglia G.
We here present an innovative microarray platform which aims to produce an higher standard of clinical microarray technology. The fabrication approach, involving a novel printing technology (Supramolecular Nano-Stamping) to reduce the production costs of the chips, together with a peculiar probe design, aiming to improve the assay sensitivity and workflow, intend to make the SuNS microarrays well poised to become an important element in the clinical diagnostics market.

Onchocerca Diagnostic Testing of Polymorphisms; Effects of Antigenic Mutations on Detection of Antibodies by OV-16 ELISAPoster
Here, we have identified the particular polymorphism responsible for the loss of monoclonal antibody reactivity and investigated the potential effect these polymorphisms may have on the sensitivity of the Ov16 ELISA for the detection of parasite exposure.READ MORE
Acoustic Startle Response as a Prognostic Tool for Traumatic Brain InjuryPoster
The Acoustic Startle Reflex (ASR) is a brain-stem mediated, tri-synaptic response to acoustic stimuli involving involuntary contraction of major muscle groups. Previous studies have demonstrated that this response is suppressed following the fluid-percussion model of traumatic brain injury (TBI). The possibility exists that the suppression of this response could be exploited for prognostic purposes.READ MORE
