Journal Article
Lu, C., Janice, K., Martina, P., & Richard, L. (2018). Facile and inexpensive fabrication of zinc oxide based bio-surfaces for C-reactive protein detection. Scientific Reports, 8(1), 122687. https://doi.org/10.1038/s41598-018-30793-z

© 2018, The Author(s). The paper reports a biosensor formed from antibody coated ZnO nano-crystals which has been prepared using a rapid and inexpensive fabrication method which utilises colloidal dispersion enhanced using sonication. This technique... Read More about Facile and inexpensive fabrication of zinc oxide based bio-surfaces for C-reactive protein detection.

Rapid electrochemical detection and identification of catalase positive micro-organisms (2003)
Journal Article
Lewis, R. J., Luxton, R., Sippy, N., Luxton, R. W., Lewis, R., & Cowell, D. C. (2003). Rapid electrochemical detection and identification of catalase positive micro-organisms. Biosensors and Bioelectronics, 18(5-6), 741-749. https://doi.org/10.1016/S0956-5663%2803%2900023-X

The rapid detection and identification of bacteria has application in a number of fields, e.g. the food industry, environmental monitoring and biomedicine. While in biomedicine the number of organisms present during infection is multiples of millions...

The use of coated paramagnetic particles as a physical label in a magneto-immunoassay (2001)
Journal Article
Luxton, R., Hawkins, P., & Richardson, J. (2001). The use of coated paramagnetic particles as a physical label in a magneto-immunoassay. Biosensors and Bioelectronics, 16(9-12), 989-993. https://doi.org/10.1016/S0956-5663%2801%2900201-9

An ideal label for use in an immunoassay would require no further chemical or electromagnetic stimulation prior to its detection and would be free from interference from the sample matrix. Micron sized paramagnetic particles are able to perturb magne... Read More about The use of coated paramagnetic particles as a physical label in a magneto-immunoassay.
