Journal Article
Ghobaei Namhil, Z., Kemp, C., Verrelli, E., Iles, A., Pamme, N., Adawi, A. M., & Kemp, N. (2019). A label-free aptamer-based nanogap capacitive biosensor with greatly diminished electrode polarization effects. Physical chemistry chemical physics : PCCP, 21(2), 681-691. doi:10.1039/c8cp05510f

A significant impediment to the use of impedance spectroscopy in bio-sensing is the electrode polarization effect that arises from the movement of free ions to the electrode-solution interface, forming an electrical double layer (EDL). The EDL screen... Read More

Cell sorting by endocytotic capacity in a microfluidic magnetophoresis device (2011)
Journal Article
Robert, D., Pamme, N., Conjeaud, H., Gazeau, F., Iles, A., & Wilhelm, C. (2011). Cell sorting by endocytotic capacity in a microfluidic magnetophoresis device. Lab on a chip, 11(11), (1902-1910). doi:10.1039/c0lc00656d. ISSN 1473-0197

Magnetically labelled cells are finding a wealth of applications for in vitro analysis as well as in vivo treatments. Sorting of cells into subpopulations based on their magnetite loading is an important step in such procedures. Here, we study the so... Read More

Rapid, multistep on-chip DNA hybridisation in continuous flow on magnetic particles (2010)
Journal Article
Vojtíšek, M., Iles, A., & Pamme, N. (2010). Rapid, multistep on-chip DNA hybridisation in continuous flow on magnetic particles. Biosensors & bioelectronics, 25(9), (2172-2176). doi:10.1016/j.bios.2010.01.034. ISSN 0956-5663

DNA hybridisation is an important tool for bioanalytical research and clinical diagnostics; conventional methods, however, require long incubation times and numerous washing steps, rendering the procedure time consuming and labour intensive. In this... Read More

The importance of particle type selection and temperature control for on-chip free-flow magnetophoresis (2009)
Journal Article
Wilhelm, C., Robert, D., Peyman, S. A., Iles, A., Tarn, M. D., & Pamme, N. (2009). The importance of particle type selection and temperature control for on-chip free-flow magnetophoresis. Journal of Magnetism and Magnetic Materials, 321(24), 4115-4122. doi:10.1016/j.jmmm.2009.08.016

Free-flow magnetophoresis is becoming a popular technique for the separation and manipulation of magnetic particles and materials in microsystems. A wide variety of magnetic particles are commercially available that differ greatly in size and in magn... Read More

Diamagnetic repulsion—A versatile tool for label-free particle handling in microfluidic devices (2009)
Journal Article
Peyman, S. A., Kwan, E. Y., Margarson, O., Iles, A., & Pamme, N. (2009). Diamagnetic repulsion—A versatile tool for label-free particle handling in microfluidic devices. Journal of Chromatography A, 1216(52), 9055-9062. doi:10.1016/j.chroma.2009.06.039

We report the exploration of diamagnetic repulsion forces for the selective manipulation of microparticles inside microfluidic devices. Diamagnetic materials such as polymers are repelled from magnetic fields, an effect greatly enhanced by suspending... Read More

Mobile magnetic particles as solid-supports for rapid surface-based bioanalysis in continuous flow (2009)
Journal Article
