Bonding Explodedviewplification strategies are central to our sensor development and embrace a variety of different approaches including investigations toward highly sensitive detection strategies using electrochemical methods, electrochemiluminescence, and luminescence, as well as new materials such as upconverting nanoparticles, 2D nanomaterials and nanofibers . These find their application in the highly sensitive, multi-analyte detection of pathogens, toxins, cells and metabolites ranging from protozoan parasites like Cryptosporidium parvum to the blood clotting protein thrombin.
