Sandia-Reducing false positives in detection techniques

  • by

It is generally difficult to identify a specific substance in a solution, which contains high concentrations of other interfering substances, without getting a high rate of false positives. The invention in this patent helps in reducing this problem by using more than one signal to identify and detect a substance in the mixture (signals such as electrical, optical, acoustic etc). This reduces the errors in identification and could be useful… Read More »Sandia-Reducing false positives in detection techniques

Sandia-Separation of proteins by applying an electric field

  • by

The selective separation of biomolecules such as DNA and proteins through nanopores appears to be a promising technique for characterizing, counting, and sequencing these species. The patent describes a technique that can be used for this purpose, to separate proteins using a specific protein dependent electric field across a nanoporous polymer exclusion membrane. It states that at low electric fields, certain proteins do not pass through the membrane but at… Read More »Sandia-Separation of proteins by applying an electric field

Sandia-Protein Detection System

  • by

Rapid detection of biological substances may be required in a number of applications like monitoring water supplies. This needs high sensitivity and high selectivity (i.e., low false-alarm rate) which can be costly and complex to design. This patent describes a technique for rapid real-time sensing of proteins in aqueous samples using direct absorption techniques.
