(University of the Western Cape, 2010)
In this study two medicinal plant species, namely Galenia africana and Elytropapus rhinocerotis, the former belonging to the family Aizoceae and the latter belonging to the family Asteraceae, have been investigated and ...
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 ...
