The Hind Sight of Nanotechnology
Poster Mar 24, 2009
Nanotechnology addresses manipulation and study of structures and devices with length scales in the 1- to 100-nanometers range. Market growing upto 1 to 2.95 trillion $ by 2015, projects nanotubes to cross US$5 billion by the year 2012. In view of the toxicity that can be posed by it serious problems can threaten to neutralize the gains of nanotechnology.
A New Tool for the Automated Sample Preparation of Whole Blood Samples by LC-MS using a Commercial AutosamplerPoster
Automated sample preparation reduces the costs per sample and minimizes sample handling errors. Usually expensive and highly specialized pipetting robots are used. However, most of these systems are not designed with a direct interface for LC-MS applications. In addition common pipetting systems are not optimized for smaller scale sample series. Here we present a new tool for liquid handling of whole blood samples and direct sample injection.
Determination of the Fat Content Profile of different Chocolate Products using an Automated Workflow for the Generation of Fatty Acid Methyl Esters (FAME)Poster
The method allows for automated determination of total fat content and quantitative analysis of saturated and unsaturated cis- and trans- fatty acids of different chocolate products.READ MORE
Preparation of Photonic Biosensors by Inkjet Printing TechnologyPoster
In order to enable local functionalization of label-free optical waveguide biosensors in a cost effective mass-fabrication compatible manner, we investigate surface modification employing inkjet printing of functional polymers and UV-curable benzophenone dextran.READ MORE
