    • Functional nucleic acids for detecting bacteria 

      Huang, Po-Jung Jimmy; Liu, Minchuan; Liu, Juewen (De Gruyter, 2013-01-31)
      Bacterial infection represents one of the leading causes of disease and death, and as such, bacterial detection is an important step in managing infectious diseases. The current protocol requires growing cell cultures, ...
    • Microparticle suspensions and bacteria laden droplets: Are they the same in terms of wetting signature? 

      Melayil, Kiran Raj; Misra, Sirshendu; Mitra, Sushanta K. (ACS, 2021-01-17)
      Adhesion behavior of microbial pathogens on commonly encountered surfaces is one of the most pertinent questions now. We present the characterization of bacteria laden droplets and quantify the adhesion forces on highly ...
    • Synthetic quorum sensing in model microcapsule colonies 

      Shum, Henry; Balazs, Anna C. (Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, 2017-07-24)
      Biological quorum sensing refers to the ability of cells to gauge their population density and collectively initiate a new behavior once a critical density is reached. Designing synthetic materials systems that exhibit ...
    • Ultraviolet-C Irradiation, Heat, and Storage as Potential Methods of Inactivating SARS-CoV-2 and Bacterial Pathogens on Filtering Facepiece Respirators 

      Harfoot, Rhodri; Yung, Deborah; Anderson, William A.; Wild, Cervantée E. K.; Coetzee, Nicolene; Hernández, Leonor C.; Lawley, Blair; Pletzer, Daniel; Derraik, José G. B.; Anderson, Yvonne; Quiñones-Mateu, Miguel E. (Multidisciplinary Digital Publishing Institute, 2022-01-10)
      The arrival of SARS-CoV-2 to Aotearoa/New Zealand in February 2020 triggered a massive response at multiple levels. Procurement and sustainability of medical supplies to hospitals and clinics during the then upcoming ...
