Data on Analytical Chemistry Reported by Researchers at Hunan University

February 18, 2014

By a News Reporter-Staff News Editor at Life Science Weekly -- New research on Analytical Chemistry is the subject of a report. According to news reporting out of Changsha, People's Republic of China, by NewsRx editors, research stated, "DNA hairpin-based fluorescent probes (DHFPs) are widely used in molecular biology, biosensor development, mRNA monitoring in living cells and imaging in vivo. In this review, we focus on the typical designs and the recent bioanalytical applications of DHEPs."

Our news journalists obtained a quote from the research from Hunan University, "We describe the application of different materials with excellent photophysical properties as signal labels to reduce the background and to increase the brightness of the DHFPs. These labels range from dye molecules to nanomaterials."

According to the news editors, the research concluded: "We also discuss the general design of signal-transduction mechanisms."
