Borovicka, J., Stoyanov, S. D., & Paunov, V. N. (2015). Cell shape recognition by colloidal cell imprints: Energy of the cell-imprint interaction. Physical review. E, Statistical, nonlinear, and soft matter physics, 92(3), (1-8). doi:10.1103/physreve.92.032730. ISSN 1539-3755

The results presented in this study are aimed at the theoretical estimate of the interactions between a spherical microbial cell and the colloidal cell imprints in terms of the Derjaguin, Landau, Vervey, and Overbeek (DLVO) surface forces. We adapted... Read More

We have engineered a class of colloids which can recognize the shape and size of targeted microbial cells and selectively bind to their surfaces. These imprinted colloid particles, which we called “colloid antibodies”, were fabricated by partial frag... Read More
