    • Development of a bio-sensing technique for the detection of prions in foods 

      Anand, Ashish (Texas A&M University, 2005-02-17)
      An affinity based bio-sensing technique was developed using an anti-transmissible spongiform encephalopathy monoclonal antibody as a bio-recognition molecule. Fluorescein iso-thio-cynate (FITC), labeled with a prion epitope ...
    • Development of nano-scale and biomimetic surfaces for biomedical applications 

      Henry, James Edward (Texas A&M University, 2006-10-30)
      The work described in this dissertation details the development of a biomimetic materials for use in sensors and therapeutics, based on new advances in material science. The sensors developed herein target neurodegenerative ...
