Pencil Lead as a Material for Microfluidic 3D-Electrode Assemblies

After long, hard effort we finally published* our research on pencil lead electrodes as electrode arrays in a microfluidic system. This was first intended as an easy-to-assemble system that could be used e.g. in experiments for high-school students or undergrads. However, from that initial, simple idea it turned out to […]


Interactions of bacteriophage T4 adhesin with selected lipopolysaccharides studied using atomic force microscopy

A paper was recently published in Scientific Reports about atomic force microscopy, investigating interactions between bacteriophages and bacteria. Or, at least, as the title says, between T4 adhesin with lipopolysaccharides from bacteria. This was done by modifying an AFM tip with the adhesin from the bacteriophage T4 and using this tip to […]


Poland-China Symposium

Last week Martin took part in the 1st Poland-China Bilateral Scientific Symposium on Emerging Technologies in Photonics and Electronics organised in Shenzhen, China by Prof. Mateusz Smietana from Warsaw University of Technology and Prof. Liyang Shao from Southern University of Science and Technology (SUSTech). The goal of the meeting was […]


ISE annual meeting in Bologna

Almost the whole group went to the ISE annual meeting, this year organised in Bologna, Italy. Apart from lots of cool science, many new contact, meeting with old friends the week also included some sight-seeing and a good deal of lovely Italian food. The group presented five posters during the […]


New IAESTE-student – Sotiria

A warm welcome to our new student, Sotiria Kyriakou, who will work in our lab for three months as an exchange student through the IAESTE programme. Sotiria is a chemical engineer who recently graduated from the Aristotle University of Thessaloniki (AUTH). During her studies she specialised in biomedical engineering and was working […]


Paper-based system for ion transfer across the liquid-liquid interface

In a paper just accepted for publication in Analytical Chemistry Marta, Emilia, and Martin, together with Damien Arrigan from Curtin University, and our former intern Alexandra Pacowska, show how ion-transfer across the liquid-liquid interface can be studied in a paper-based system. One of the problems when studying ion-transfer between an organic […]
