Quantitative reporting of protein amount by a CCTO reporter

You do not have access to this project. Please log in for more information.

Project Overview

A quantitative reporting of protein level is important in many biomedical applications. A novel short peptide-based reporter, sensitive to the microenvironment, can be used to this end. Binding of the reporter to the target protein results in an increase in light intensity and a shift in the emitted light (i.e. a CCTO sensor), which can be detected by a spectrometer. This semesterís work is to expand upon what we have already accomplished by making software improvements and implementing a new device component that utilizes microfluidics to achieve blood plasma separation.
