    A molecularly imprinted polymer (MIP) selective for tylosin was designed and synthesised using a computational method (MIP “dialling”). In re-binding experiments the MIP demonstrated high affinity for tylosin in aqueous ...
  • Subrahmanyam, Sreenath (Cranfield University, 2002-04)
    This thesis presents broadly the applications of molecularly imprinted polymers in sensors and solid phase extraction. Sensors for creatine and creatinine have been reported using a novel method of rational design of ...
  • Jiang, Tieshan; Minunni, Maria E.; Wilson, P. K.; Zhang, Jian; Turner, Anthony P. F.; Mascini, Marco (Elsevier, 2005-02-02)
    A DNA-based Surface Plasmon Resonance (SPR) biosensor has been developed for the detection of TP53 mutation using the inexpensive and commercially available instrument, SPREETATM SPR-EVM-BT, from Texas Instruments. A direct ...
  • Sarkar, P.; Ghosh, D.; Bhattacharyay, D.; Setford, S. J.; Turner, Anthony P. F. (Wiley InterScience, 2008)
    Prostate specific antigen (PSA) is a prominent marker for the prostate carcinoma. It is found in human blood in free (f-PSA) and complex forms. These two forms together are called total PSA (t-PSA). Estimation of both forms ...
  • Rasinger, Josef D.; Marrazza, Giovanna; Briganti, Fabrizio; Scozzafava, Andrea; Mascini, Marco; Turner, Anthony P. F. (Taylor and Francis, 2005)
    Recently, the development and optimization of a flow injection analysis (FIA) operated bacterial biosensor based on the aerobic catabolism of Pseudomonas putida ML2 was reported in the literature (Lanyon et al. 2004, 2005). ...
  • Newman, Jeffrey D.; Turner, Anthony P. F. (Elsevier, 2005-06-15)
    Twenty years on from a review in the first issue of this journal, this contribution revisits glucose sensing for diabetes with an emphasis on commercial developments in the home blood glucose testing market. Following a ...
  • Tang, Alice X. J.; Pravda, Miloslav; Guilbault, George G.; Piletsky, Sergey A.; Turner, Anthony P. F. (Elsevier Science B.V., Amsterdam., 2002-10-23)
    An immunosensor for the determination of okadaic acid (OA) using a quartz crystal microbalance (QCM) was developed and optimised in standard solutions. Several coupling techniques, protein A, protein G and polyethylenimine ...
  • Tombelli, S.; Mascini, Marco; Turner, Anthony P. F. (Elsevier, 2002-12)
    The high sensitivity and specificity of DNA hybridisation techniques makes them powerful tools for environmental or clinical analysis. This work describes the development of a DNA piezoelectric biosensor for the detection ...
  • Fragkou, Vasiliki (Cranfield University, 2010-09)
    Diabetes is one of the leading causes of death and disability in the world. Even though insulin was discovered in 1920, an intense research on diabetes has been conducted during the last five decades and this is because ...
