Opportunities for Collaboration

We welcome opportunities for collaboration and training exchange on nano-biosensor development and testing in various matrices. If you are interested, please feel free to contact us.

We support the following biosensor platforms:

Antibody-based sensors (immunosensors)

Bio-barcode DNA sensors


These are our nano-scale transducers:

Gold nanoparticles (left); magnetic nanoparticles (right).

Electrically and magnetically active nanoparticles (left); Polyaniline nanowire (right).

Polyaniline nanowire bundle (left); Polyaniline-carbon nanotube composite (right).

Biologically-synthesized 20nm gold nanoparticles in solution (left); TEM image of nanoparticles (right).
