Findings from Jiangnan University Broaden Understanding of Materials Science

February 11, 2014

By a News Reporter-Staff News Editor at Journal of Technology -- Research findings on Materials Science are discussed in a new report. According to news reporting originating in Jiangsu, People's Republic of China, by VerticalNews journalists, research stated, "A sensitive plasmonic chirality-based aptasensor for the detection of bisphenol A (BPA) was developed."

The news reporters obtained a quote from the research from Jiangnan University, "Asymmetric plasmonic nanoparticle dimers were produced by the hybridization of a BPA aptamer and its complementary sequence modified nanoparticles. Under different concentrations of BPA, the intensity of the chiral signal was varied."

According to the news reporters, the research concluded: "A low limit of detection of 0.008 ng/mL was obtained in the range 0.02-5 ng/mL."
