Laboratory for Analytical Chemistry
Innovation of Chemical Sensors
Faculty of Science and Technology
Department of Applied Chemistry
Our laboratory's research activities are devoted to the development of chemical sensors and biosensors. Our work covers the entire range of sensor development from the creation of functional molecules (e.g. molecular probes), over nano- and micro-sized functional materials (e.g. polymeric nanoparticles), to entire sensing systems.
Low-Cost Analytical Devices for Healthcare and Environment
Printing technologies are used as a tool for the fabrication of low-cost analytical assay devices intended for general end users, allowing to monitor important clinical or environmental analytes at the point of need.
Fluorescent / Luminescent Functional Dyes
Fluorescent, chemiluminescent and bioluminescent organic functional dyes usable as molecular tools in (bio)analytical chemistry have been developed.
HPLC Packing Materials
We are developing functional inorganic-organic hybrid nanoparticle materials for packing materials in high performance liquid chromatography (HPLC) columns.
Stimuli-responsive polymers are getting attention as next-generation medical materials. We develop new stimuli-responsive polymers, especially those responding to changes in temperature or pH, and apply them to the medical field.
Our research group is looking at the development of new immunoassay formats and at materials used for simple and sensitive immunoassays, including those relying on bioluminescence signaling.
