Analyst Poster Prize: ICAVS-7 Conference, Kobe, Japan

Analyst Poster Prize: ICAVS-7 Conference, Kobe, Japan

We are please to announce that the Analyst Poster Prize from the recent ICAVS-7 Conference held in August 2013 in Kobe, Japan has been awarded to Cosima Koch.

Congratulations to Cosima for her winning poster!

Cosima is currently pursuing a PhD in Analytical Chemistry at Vienna University of Technology focusing on the development of a new technology for infrared spectroscopy of particles in suspension. For the first time, acquisition of spectra of suspended particles is possible through the combination of ultrasonic particle manipulation and attentuated total reflection Fourier transform IR (ATR FTIR) spectroscopy. During the first part of her PhD, she helped with the design and construction of an ultrasound accessory for a commercially available inline fiber optic ATR probe. Recently, in a collaboration with the bioprocess technology department, the first spectra of S. cerevisiae (baker’s yeast) during fermentation were recorded in situ in a bioreactor with this prototype probe. The techniques allows to gain insight into biochemical changes in the cells in real time without the need for sampling. Apart from investigating the biochemical composition of cells during a fermentation and offline by FTIR and Raman microspectroscopy, Cosima investigates the use of ATR FTIR spectroscopy and chemometrics for monitoring media components and bioproducts to control bioprocesses.

Bacteria incriminated by their odour

Researchers in Taiwan and the US have developed a device that uses the volatile organic compounds released by bacteria to identify the bacteria as they are cultured. When fully developed, this single-step gadget could trump the speed of current clinical techniques.

Sepsis and other bloodstream infections are very dangerous and need immediate treatment. It is therefore essential to detect microorganisms in human blood quickly to decide the most effective treatment.

Blood cultures are currently used to detect if bacteria are present in a patient’s blood. This takes 24 hours or more just to reveal if a sample contains bacteria. Further tests reveal the identity of the bacteria and show which antibiotics can kill them. This multi-step process can take several days, and in the meantime patients are often treated with antibiotics presumptively, which can induce side effects in the patient as well as antibiotic resistance in the bacteria.

Chemometric analysis of colour changes reveals which strain of bacteria is present

A biochemical eyewitness

Blood found at a crime scene could give police an indication of a criminal suspect’s ethnicity there and then thanks to a new bioassay.

Biological samples recovered at crime scenes can provide vital evidence to identify, accuse and exonerate. DNA/RNA analysis techniques for profiling suspects are sophisticated, but usually require complex equipment. On-site analysis of fluids is mostly limited to simple identification of possible samples, such as bloodstains, which are then collected and transported to specialist laboratories. This creates undesirable delays for investigations, where time is often of the essence.

Advances in GC IV, Cheshire

Advances in GC IV
30th October 2013 (First Announcement)
LGC Ltd, The Heath Business Park, Runcorn, Cheshire

Joint meeting organised by The Chromatographic Society and the North West Region of the Analytical Division of the Royal Society of Chemistry.

After the success of the 2011 meeting we are pleased to announce another follow up meeting in the series.
GC is still technique of choice for analysing both volatile and semi volatile compounds, but as we move to more difficult matrices, more is being asked of the technique in terms of separation and limits of detection. The meeting sets out to both give an overview of current GC technologies and methodologies, information on newer detection/separation solutions and case studies from all the main user areas.
 
In parallel to the full meeting program will be an Instrument exhibition with representatives from all the major GC Instrument and Consumables Suppliers.

3rd Workshop on Microfludics, Sao Paulo, Brazil

The 3rd Workshop on Microfluidics was held at the National Center for Research on Energy and Materials (CNPEM) in Campinas, Sao Paulo (Brazil) from July 18-19, 2013. Since 2011, the workshop has brought together young students, researchers and companies from different states of Brazil to discuss topics related to the fundamentals, fabrication technologies, innovations and applications on microfluidic science. In this third edition, the Workshop was attended by around 160 people from Universities (66%), research centers (23%) and companies (11%). As already observed in previous years, the Workshop has demonstrated the state of the art of microfluidics in Brazil. This field has been spread out around different regions of the Brazil with great contributions on fabrication technologies well as innovative developments and applications on microfluidic platforms. For the coming years, we hope that the Workshop will continue to receive great attention from the community in order to contribute to the scientific growth related to the microfluidics in Brazil.

During the Workshop, we were pleased to select the presentation “Microfluidic formation of pDNA/cationic nonviral nanocarriers for in vitro gene delivery” to receive the RSC Publishing Prize for the best presentation. The work was presented by the graduated student Tiago A. Balbino and was supervised by Dr. Lucimara G. de La Torre, from the School of Chemical Engineering, State University of Campinas (UNICAMP). The work describes the microfluidic formation of nonviral systems for delivery of plasmid DNA (pDNA) using a hydrodynamic flow-focusing microfluidic device where the complexation between the pDNA and three different cationic nonviral nanocarriers: cationic liposomes, poly(ethylene imine), and peptide with nuclear localization signals were demonstrated.
On behalf of the organizing committee, I would like to thank the support received from the Royal Society of Chemistry.

A fantastic voyage

Joseph Wang is a Distinguished Professor and Vice Chair of Nanoengineering at the University of California, San Diego in the US. His research looks at the rapidly developing field of nanobioelectronics which aims to integrate nano- and biomaterials with electronic transducers. He took some time out from the Faraday Discussion on Electroanalysis at the Nanoscale, held at the University of Durham, UK, at the beginning of July, to talk to Rebecca Brodie about his research.

Who or what inspired you to become a scientist in the first place?

I’ve always been interested in science. More biology and medicine in the early days but it was mainly an interest in medicine and biomedicine. After that I became a chemist, then an electrochemist with my PhD. It’s really been a continuous evolution with my interests moving in new directions for almost three decades now.
