Paper published in BioChip Journal

A floating magnetic membrane for efficient separation and enrichment of pathogenic bacteria using superparamagnetic nanoparticles and capillary glass tube has been developed. The virtual ‘filter’ can rapidly and selectively capture the target bacteria under continuous flow. This technology can be further expanded for large scale separation and purification of biological components. Watch out more.

Paper accepted in Chemical Communications

Our collaborative study on fluorescence-based intracellular imaging with Prof. Kyo Han Ahn (POSTECH) has been accepted for publication in Chemical Communications. This work reports a discrepancy of fluorescent properties between solutions and intracellular environment. Along with this finding, we have developed a series of benzocoumarin dyes which has environment-insensitive characteristics for super-bright bioimaging.
