Abstract null null Laser scribed graphene (LSG) has shown great potential as a sensing platform due to its high sensitivity, simplicity, porosity, and flexibility. In this context, we report a novel biosensing platform that utilizes LSG electrodes modified with nanostructured gold and molecularly imprinted polymer (MIP) to enhance its sensitivity and selectivity. This biomimetic sensing platform is used to detect the human epidermal growth factor receptor 2 (Her-2) protein, a significant breast ...

Abstract Laser-scribed graphene (LSG) electrodes have gained significant interest due to the ease in fabrication, surface modification, and potential to develop various types of electrochemical sensors and biosensors. In these studies, a new type of zinc ferrite nanoparticles (ZnFe2O4 NPs) modified LSG electrochemical sensing system comprising LSG-ZnFe2O4 working electrode, LSG reference, and LSG counter electrode on a single polyimide substrate is presented. LSG-ZnFe2O4 electrodes are fabricate...

Abstract Improvements in the Laser-scribed graphene (LSG)-based electrodes are critical to overcoming limitations of bare LSG electrodes in terms of sensitivity, direct immobilization of detection probes for biosensor fabrication, and ease of integration with point-of-care (POC) devices. Herein, we introduce a new class of nanostructured gold modified LSG (LSG-AuNS) electrochemical sensing system comprising LSG-AuNS working electrode, LSG reference, and LSG counter electrode. LSG-AuNS electrodes...

The Langmuir-Blodgett (LB) method is a well-known deposition technique for the fabrication of ordered monolayer and multilayer thin films of nanomaterials onto different substrates that plays a critical role in the development of functional devices for various applications. This paper describes detailed studies about the best coating configuration for nanoparticles of a porous metal-organic framework (MOF) onto both insulating or conductive threads and nylon fiber. We design and fabricate custom...

Abstract Laser-derived graphene (LDG) technology is gaining attention as a promising material for the development of novel electrochemical sensors and biosensors. Compared to established methods for graphene synthesis, LDG provides many advantages such as cost-effectiveness, fast electron mobility, mask-free, green synthesis, good electrical conductivity, porosity, mechanical stability, and large surface area. This review discusses, in a critical way, recent advancements in this field. First, we...

The technology of 3D bioprinting has gained significant interest in biomedical engineering, regenerative medicine, and the pharmaceutical industry. Providing a new scope in tissue and organ printing, 3D bioprinters are becoming commercialized for biological processes. However, the current technology is costly, ranging from USD9,000-0,000 and is limited to customized extrusion methods. Multiple microfluidic pump systems for bioink extrusion are commercially available at USD$30,000. Additionall...

The ability of skeletal muscle to self-repair after a traumatic injury, tumor ablation, or muscular disease is slow and limited, and the capacity of skeletal muscle to self-regenerate declines steeply with age. Tissue engineering of functional skeletal muscle using 3D bioprinting technology is promising for creating tissue constructs that repair and promote regeneration of damaged tissue. Hydrogel scaffolds used as biomaterials for skeletal muscle tissue engineering can provide chemical, physica...
