Researchers demonstrate versatility of solid-state protein sensor

A novel type of sensor, based on nanometer-scale pores in a semiconductor membrane, is a step closer to practical use in applications such as analyzing the protein contents of a single cell. Researchers at the Technische Universitaet Muenchen have shown its potential through a succession of experiments over the past few years.

UHPLC nano flow sensor

Key features are a pressure rating of 1000 bar (15000 psi) and a short response time of 30 ms

IR-enhanced charged-coupled device image sensor

Hamamatsu Photonics' S11510 series suitable for Raman spectroscopy

Sensor exploits traditional weakness of nano devices

By taking advantage of a phenomenon that until now has been a virtual showstopper for electronics designers, a team is developing a chemical and biological sensor with unprecedented sensitivity.

Portable and precise gas sensor

A team of Princeton and Rice University researchers has demonstrated a new method of identifying nitric oxide using lasers and sensors that are inexpensive, compact and highly sensitive.

Laser, sensor technology

Scientists hope that research being conducted in Binghamton University's Department of Physics, Applied Physics and Astronomy will create lasers that work at wavelengths currently inaccessible.

Product, process and profits with the correct pH sensor

In an effort to improve process efficiency and boost batch yields, one Canadian company focused on its pH sensor problems. Once they were overcome, the company was able to massively increase both product yield and quality. Sean Ottewell reports.

Pressure devices now have non-invasive sensor detection as standard

Elfab, one of Europe’s leading suppliers of pressure-relief systems, has added detection to each of its main product lines, giving end-users an immediate indication that a bursting device has operated.

Holographic advances boost diagnostic sensor development

The perceived utility of biosensors ­ analytical devices based on molecules that recognise specific biological substances ­ within the consumer health, biotechnology and biomedical industries is well established.

Sensor does away with sample pre-treatment

The SIRE Biosensor is based on award-winning research by Dr Dario Kriz, who manages the European Institute of Science and chairs the Chemel board.
