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...

Towards the development of molecularly imprinted polymer based screen-printed sensors for metabolites of PAHs (2001)
Journal Article
McCalley, D. V., Luxton, R. W., Bird, D. J., Hart, J. P., Kirsch, N., Kirsch, N., …McCalley, D. V. (2001). Towards the development of molecularly imprinted polymer based screen-printed sensors for metabolites of PAHs. Analyst, 126(11), 1936-1941. https://doi.org/10.1039/b108008n

This paper describes the fabrication of a sensor for 1-hydroxypyrene (1-OHP) based on a screen-printed carbon electrode (SPCE) modified with a molecularly imprinted polymer (MIP); 1-OHP was chosen as a model metabolite of polyaromatic hydrocarbons (P...

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.
