Purdue Develops Low-Cost, Easy-to-Use Hydrogel Sensor

Despite its simple design, the sensor is highly-sensitive and precise. Cagri Savran, study leader and an associate professor of mechanical engineering at Purdue University, along with Babak Ziaie, a Purdue University professor of electrical and computer engineering and biomedical engineering, and a team of researchers, are developing a low-cost, highly-sensitive biological and chemical sensor that […]

Immunomagnetic diffractometry featured in Bioscience Technology

As medicine moves closer to personalization and targeted therapy, the need for diagnostics that can rapidly and accurately predict and monitor the occurrence and progression of disease and drug treatments becomes critical. In an article published in the Journal of the American Chemical Society (Vol. 129, No. 51, Nov. 2007), Prof. Çağrı A. Savran demonstrated […]

Immunomagnetic Diffractometry highlighted in Analytical Chemistry and ACS Journal of Proteome Research

In the quest for an improved biomarker detection method, Cagri Savran and colleagues at Purdue University and the Mayo Clinic have designed a new technique called immunomagnetic diffractometry. Their approach combines the immunomagnetic capture of an analyte on beads, in situ assembly of an optical diffraction grating, and measurement of the diffraction. In this method, […]
