Authors: M R, S V, Ramirez JT, A V, L L Abstract Novel materials are explored very often by material scientists to design an efficient drug delivery system to target carcinoma cells. Among various nanosystem, functionalized Iron oxide Nanoparticles (IoNP) were definitely studied especially to target, endocyte and release drug moieties inside the cells. This IoNP platform is usually composed of an inorganic core and a highly biocompatible shell layer in order to perform numerous tasks at the same time, such as drug delivery, multimodal imaging, and instantaneous monitoring, along with collective therapeutic approach...

Publication date: Available online 12 November 2018Source: Physics Letters AAuthor(s): Xueying ZhaoAbstractLandau (1937) [1] had an argument that one-dimensional long chains are not stable at finite temperature, and will break into short sections due to thermal fluctuation. However, until recently, fragmentation of one-dimensional chains by formation of thermal vacancies was first discovered in Bagatskii et al. (2014) [6] for the Xenon that physically adsorbed in the grooves of single-walled carbon nanotube bundles. In this work, scanning tunneling microscopy (STM) was first used to observe the influence of thermal fluctua...

In this study, a novel imprinted biosensor approach based on boron nitride quantum dots (BNQDs) was presented for cTnI detection in plasma samples. Various characterization methods such as scanning electron microscope (SEM), transmission electron microscope (TEM), x-ray diffraction (XRD), cyclic voltammetry (CV) and electrochemical impedance spectroscopy (EIS) were used for all characterizations of nanomaterials. After the characterization analysis, cTnI imprinted electrode was developed in the presence of 100.0 mM pyrrole containing 25.0 mM cTnI. After that, the analytical studies of cTnI in plasma samples were ...

Authors: Gupta I, Eisenbrey JR, Machado P, Stanczak M, Wallace K, Forsberg F Abstract Subharmonic-aided pressure estimation (SHAPE) estimates hydrostatic pressure using the inverse relationship with subharmonic amplitude variations of ultrasound contrast agents (UCAs). We studied the impact of varying incident acoustic outputs (IAO), UCA concentration, and hematocrit on SHAPE. A Logiq 9 scanner with a 4C curvilinear probe (GE, Milwaukee, Wisconsin) was used with Sonazoid (GE Healthcare, Oslo, Norway) transmitting at 2.5 MHz and receiving at 1.25 MHz. An improved IAO selection algorithm provided improved correlation...

We present dual-mode phase and fluorescence imaging in a confocal laser scanning microscopy (CLSM) system. For phase imaging, the depth of field of the CLSM system is extended by fast axial scanning with a tunable acoustic gradient index of refraction lens. Under transillumination, intensity images ...

is Mohamad Fathil A rapid and sensitive sandwich electrochemical immunosensor was developed based on the fabrication of the graphene/polyaniline (GP/PANI) nanocomposite onto screen-printed gold electrode (SPGE) for detection of tuberculosis biomarker 10-kDa culture filtrate protein (CFP10). The prepared GP/PANI nanocomposite was characterized using Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy (FTIR) and field emission scanning electron microscopy (FESEM). The chemical bonding and morphology of GP/PANI-modified SPGE were studied by Raman spectroscopy and FESEM coupled with energy dispersive X-ray spectroscopy, respectively. ...
