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.

Magnetic particle plug-based assays for biomarker analysis (2016)
Journal Article
Phurimsak, C., Tarn, M. D., & Pamme, N. (2016). Magnetic particle plug-based assays for biomarker analysis. Micromachines, 7(5), 77. https://doi.org/10.3390/mi7050077

Conventional immunoassays offer selective and quantitative detection of a number of biomarkers, but are laborious and time-consuming. Magnetic particle-based assays allow easy and rapid selection of analytes, but still suffer from the requirement of... Read More about Magnetic particle plug-based assays for biomarker analysis.

Development of radiodetection systems towards miniaturised quality control of PET and SPECT radiopharmaceuticals (2016)
Journal Article
Taggart, M. P., Tarn, M. D., Esfahani, M. M. N., Schofield, D. M., Brown, N. J., Archibald, S. J., …Thompson, L. F. (2016). Development of radiodetection systems towards miniaturised quality control of PET and SPECT radiopharmaceuticals. Lab on a chip, 16(9), 1605-1616. https://doi.org/10.1039/c6lc00099a

The ability to detect radiation in microfluidic devices is important for the on-chip analysis of radiopharmaceuticals, but previously reported systems have largely suffered from various limitations including cost, complexity of fabrication, and insuf...

Positron detection in silica monoliths for miniaturised quality control of PET radiotracers (2016)
Journal Article
Tarn, M. D., Maneuski, D., Alexander, R., Brown, N. J., O’Shea, V., Pimlott, S. L., …Archibald, S. J. (2016). Positron detection in silica monoliths for miniaturised quality control of PET radiotracers. Chemical communications : Chem comm / the Royal Society of Chemistry, 52(45), 7221-7224. https://doi.org/10.1039/c6cc00660d

We demonstrate the use of the miniaturised Medipix positron sensor for detection of the clinical PET radiotracer, [⁶⁸Ga]gallium-citrate, on a silica-based monolith, towards microfluidic quality control. The system achieved a far superior signal-to-no... Read More about Positron detection in silica monoliths for miniaturised quality control of PET radiotracers.

Lab-on-a-chip workshop activities for secondary school students (2016)
Journal Article
Esfahani, M. M. N., Tarn, M. D., Choudhury, T. A., Hewitt, L. C., Mayo, A. J., Rubin, T. A., …Pamme, N. (2016). Lab-on-a-chip workshop activities for secondary school students. Biomicrofluidics, 10(1), https://doi.org/10.1063/1.4940884

The ability to engage and inspire younger generations in novel areas of science is important for bringing new researchers into a burgeoning field, such as lab-on-a-chip. We recently held a lab-on-a-chip workshop for secondary school students, for whi... Read More about Lab-on-a-chip workshop activities for secondary school students.
