Synthesis, electrodynamics and biosensor applications of novel sulphonated polyaniline nanocomposites
(University of the Western Cape, 2007)
The overall aim of this thesis was to prepare nanostructured more processable heteronuclear sulphonated polyanyline nanocomposites with electroconductive properties suitable for applications in biosensors. The sulphonated ...
Nanocomposite immunosensor for anti-transglutaminase antibody
(University of the Western Cape, 2009)
Coeliac disease (CD) is a gluten intolerance condition that results in the flattening of the villi, which line the bowel. It is the most common cause of malabsorption of food nutrients. This inability to absorb sufficient ...
Electrochemical immunosensor based on cyclodextrin supramolecular interactions for the detection of human chorionic gonadotropin
(University of the Western Cape, 2012)
Glucose oxidase (GOx) and horseradish peroxidase (HRP) are important enzymes for the development of amperometric enzyme linked immunosensors. The selectivity of each enzyme towards its analyte deepens its importance in ...
Polymeric tyrosinase nanobiosensor system for the determination of endocrine disrupting bisphenol A
(University of the Western Cape, 2011)
The main objective of this work was to develop simple and sensitive electrochemical sensors for the detection of bisphenol A. To investigate the electrochemical behavior of BPA on a bare glassy carbon electrode. To apply ...
AtNOGC1 protein bioelectrode for the determination of stress signalling molecules - Nitric Oxide (NO), Carbon Monoxide (CO) and Calcium ion (Ca2+)
(University of the Western Cape, 2018)
It has been estimated that the world population will reach about 10 billion by the year 2050 and in order to accommodate the increased demand of food, the world agricultural production needs to rise by 70 % in the year ...
Protein phosphatase biosensor for the detection of cyanotoxins associated with algal bloom
The toxicity of microcystin is associated with the inhibition of serine/threonine protein phosphatases 1 and 2A, which can lead to hepatocyte necrosis and haemorrhage. Analysis of microcystin is most commonly carried out ...
