High-Tc SQUIDs for Biomedical Applications: Immunoassays, by Fredrik Öisjöen

By Fredrik Öisjöen

This thesis describes the tough activity of constructing excessive severe temperature superconducting quantum interference units (high-Tc SQUIDs) and utilizing them as sensors for biomedical purposes, together with magnetic immunoassays, magnetoencephalography and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). the 1st a part of this paintings discusses the advance of speedy magnetic immunoassays, which are used to enhance the sensitivity, or to create new, specific point-of-care diagnostics platforms. the second one half exhibits that high-Tc SQUIDs may perhaps make magnetoencephalography extra to be had, hence starting the sector of high-Tc SQUID-based magnetoencephalography for recording mind capabilities. this system may be mixed with ultra-low box MRI that is mentioned within the final half. this mix could provide a brand new particular software for reports of mind capabilities. This paintings doesn't easily enhance on present know-how yet opens chances for novel complex scientific units and techniques.

Poxviruses

The hot foreign alarm on the attainable use of smallpox as weapon of bioterror has refocused the eye of the medical group, public well-being coverage makers and the general public on poxviruses. not like the chance posed via a few of these viruses, different poxviruses exhibit intriguing precious power together with their use as worthy instruments in biomedical learn and within the supply of vaccines.

Calcium Signaling In Airway Smooth Muscle Cells

This ebook explores the position calcium signaling performs in mobile responses in just about all kinds of cells together with airway gentle muscle cells. This common signaling can result from extracellular calcium inflow and/or intracellular calcium unencumber, that are accurately managed and controlled by means of ion channels, exchangers and/or transporters at the plasmalemmal or sarcoplasmic reticulum membrane.

Gradiometers 4-5 (GRAD4-5) were fabricated on a STO bicrystal (24◦ misorientation angle) substrate with a 50 nm CeO2 seed-layer. The flux noise of the GRAD4 is shown in Fig. 19 measured with and without shielding with dc-bias and bias reversal. The critical current of this SQUID was 220 µA with Ic Rn = 176 µV, and the voltage modulation was 22 µV at 77 K. Lastly, GRAD6 was a single gradiometer on a 10×10 mm2 large STO chip with a ◦ 24 misorientation angle. The width of the junctions of the two redundant SQUIDs was 2 µm and it had flux dams in the design (see Fig.
