Biotechnology

The use of living things, such as one-cell organisms, in technological innovations. Biotechnology has particular applications in medicine, agriculture, engineering, and similar fields. Biotech organizations may make and market their own products, or they may be departments within another company, such as a pharmaceutical corporation.

Biosensors are devices that combine the sensing element (e.g.
Entrapment of adsorpted cells with a porous matrix suc as [kappa]-carrageenan had been reported to increase the stability of superoxidase biosensor until 30 days (Campanella et al., 1999) and oxidative stress biosensor of Escherichia coli (Ooi et al., 2015).

Validation data reveal that the poly(2,2'-BT)/GOx biosensor is characterized by a lower LoD in comparison to the poly(4,4'-bBT)/GOx one, but the remaining parameters accounted for best performances of the biosensor bearing a substituted polythiophene.
Short chain G-rich DNA sequences that form GQ structures are now used as recognition elements in GQ electrochemical biosensor devices, since the electrochemical response is particularly sensitive to the DNA sequence structural variations from a single-stranded, double-stranded, or hairpin configuration into a GQ configuration.
In this paper, a microfluidic biosensor is realized using an SIW cavity resonator.
where [R.sub.et](i) is the value of electron transfer resistance after the binding of JEV to JEV antibody and [R.sub.et](o) is the value of electron transfer resistance after the immobilization of JEV antibody onto CNPs modified SPCE electrochemical biosensor strip working electrode surface and block with BSA.
This new US FDA clearance extends the wear duration for the company's existing Class 2 wearable biosensor, the VitalPatch, by 25% from 96 hours (four days) to 120 hours (five days), covering the average hospital stay.
3 shows the normalized transmission spectrum of the biosensor in the absence of the analyte, at the resonant wavelength is 1565 nm while keeping the cavity position and Rc at their optimum value.
In food industry, biosensor methods are receiving a great amount of attention due to the potential feasibility of practical on-site detection of foodborne pathogens as rapid detection methods.
The aim of this Project is to implement HEATSENS technology in a specific biosensor product: HEATSENS_S, a biosensor able to detect Salmonella in chicken meat on the same working day both for positive and negative results, at an affordable price for customers (where current methodologies take not less than 19hrs).
