A label-free aptamer-based nanogap capacitive biosensor with greatly diminished electrode polarization effects (2019)
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. https://doi.org/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 about A label-free aptamer-based nanogap capacitive biosensor with greatly diminished electrode polarization effects.

A plant-like mitochondrial carrier family protein facilitates mitochondrial transport of di- and tricarboxylates in Trypanosoma brucei (2018)
Journal Article
Colasante, C., Zheng, F., Kemp, C., & Voncken, F. (2018). A plant-like mitochondrial carrier family protein facilitates mitochondrial transport of di- and tricarboxylates in Trypanosoma brucei. Molecular and Biochemical Parasitology, 221, 36-51. https://doi.org/10.1016/j.molbiopara.2018.03.003

The procyclic form of the human parasite Trypanosoma brucei harbors one single, large mitochondrion containing all tricarboxylic acid (TCA) cycle enzymes and respiratory chain complexes present also in higher eukaryotes. Metabolite exchange among sub... Read More about A plant-like mitochondrial carrier family protein facilitates mitochondrial transport of di- and tricarboxylates in Trypanosoma brucei.

Sample introduction interface for on-chip nucleic acid-based analysis of Helicobacter pylori from stool samples (2016)
Journal Article
Esfahani, M. M. N., Shaw, K. J., Esfahani, M. M., Kemp, C., Tarn, M. D., Melling, L., …Mosley, O. (2016). Sample introduction interface for on-chip nucleic acid-based analysis of Helicobacter pylori from stool samples. Lab on a chip, 16(11), 2108-2115. https://doi.org/10.1039/c6lc00228e

Despite recent advances in microfluidic-based integrated diagnostic systems, the sample introduction interface, especially with regards to large volume samples, has often been neglected. We present a sample introduction interface that allows direct o... Read More about Sample introduction interface for on-chip nucleic acid-based analysis of Helicobacter pylori from stool samples.

Improved DNA extraction efficiency from low level cell numbers using a silica monolith based micro fluidic device (2012)
Journal Article
Kashkary, L., Kemp, C., Shaw, K. J., Greenway, G. M., & Haswell, S. J. (2012). Improved DNA extraction efficiency from low level cell numbers using a silica monolith based micro fluidic device. Analytica Chimica Acta, 750, 127-131. https://doi.org/10.1016/j.aca.2012.05.019

The evaluation of a micro fluidic system with an integrated silica monolith for performing DNA extraction from limited biological samples has been carried out. Low DNA target concentrations usually require the addition of carrier RNA to ensure desire...

Direct processing of clinically relevant large volume samples for the detection of sexually transmitted infectious agents from urine on a microfluidic device (2012)
Journal Article
Kemp, C., Birch, C., Shaw, K. J., Nixon, G. J., Docker, P. T., Greenman, J., …Dyer, C. E. (2012). Direct processing of clinically relevant large volume samples for the detection of sexually transmitted infectious agents from urine on a microfluidic device. Analytical Methods, 4(7), 2141-2144. doi:10.1039/c2ay25075f

Urine is a preferred specimen for nucleic acid-based detection of sexually transmitted infections (STIs) but represents a challenge for microfluidic devices due to low analyte concentrations. We present an extraction methodology enabling rapid on-chi...
