  1. Light emitting diodes (LEDs) applied to microalgal production.

    Trends in Biotechnology 32(8):422 (2014) PMID 25012573

    Light-emitting diodes (LEDs) will become one of the world's most important light sources and their integration in microalgal production systems (photobioreactors) needs to be considered. LEDs can improve the quality and quantity of microalgal biomass when applied during specific growth phases. Howev...
  2. Non-invasive wearable electrochemical sensors: a review.

    Trends in Biotechnology 32(7):363 (2014) PMID 24853270

    Wearable sensors have garnered considerable recent interest owing to their tremendous promise for a plethora of applications. Yet the absence of reliable non-invasive chemical sensors has greatly hindered progress in the area of on-body sensing. Electrochemical sensors offer considerable promise as...
  3. What place for polyacrylamide in proteomics?

    Trends in Biotechnology 19:3 (2001)

    We describe the progress made towards establishing 2D-PAGE as the optimal separation tool for proteomics research....
  4. Novel vaccine technologies.

    Trends in Biotechnology 15(12):483 (1997) PMID 9418302

  5. Towards XNA nanotechnology: new materials from synthetic genetic polymers.

    Trends in Biotechnology 32(6):321 (2014) PMID 24745974 PMCID PMC4039137

    Nucleic acids display remarkable properties beyond information storage and propagation. The well-understood base pairing rules have enabled nucleic acids to be assembled into nanostructures of ever increasing complexity. Although nanostructures can be constructed using other building blocks, includi...
  6. Lab-on-a-chip technologies for stem cell analysis.

    Trends in Biotechnology 32(5):245 (2014) PMID 24726257

    We address recent lab-on-a-chip developments for stem cell analysis. We highlight in particular the tangible advantages of microfluidic devices to overcome most of the challenges associated with stem cell identification, expansion and differentiation, with the greatest advantage being that lab-on-a-...
  7. Blood substitutes: why haven't we been more successful?

    Trends in Biotechnology 32(4):177 (2014) PMID 24630491

    Persistent safety concerns have stalled the development of viable hemoglobin (Hb)-based oxygen carriers (HBOCs). HBOCs have several advantages over human blood, including availability, long-term storage, and lack of infectious risk. The basis of HBOC toxicity is poorly understood, however, several m...
  8. Laccase-mediated oxidation of small organics: bifunctional roles for versatile applications.

    Trends in Biotechnology 31(6):335 (2013) PMID 23639526

    Laccases have been widely used in several biotechnological areas, including organic synthesis, bioremediation, and pulp/textile bleaching. In most applications, the enzymatic actions start with single-electron oxidation of small organics followed by formation of the corresponding radicals. These rad...
  9. Soft robotics: a bioinspired evolution in robotics.

    Trends in Biotechnology 31(5):287 (2013) PMID 23582470

    We review emerging soft-bodied robotic systems, and in particular recent developments inspired by soft-bodied animals. Incorporating soft technologies can potentially reduce the mechanical and algorithmic complexity involved in robot design. Incorporating soft technologies will also expedite the evo...
  10. The greener synthesis of nanoparticles.

    Trends in Biotechnology 31(4):240 (2013) PMID 23434153

    We examine 'greener' routes to nanoparticles of zerovalent metals, metal oxides, and salts with an emphasis on recent developments. Products from nature or those derived from natural products, such as extracts of various plants or parts of plants, tea, coffee, banana, simple amino acids, as well as...
