New interesting publication " A fibrin biofilm covers blood clots and protects from microbial invasion" by Macrea et. al mentioning the use of NANOSENSORS uniqprobe qp-BioAC https://www.nanosensors.com/uniqprobe-uniform-quality-spm-probe-contact-or-dynamic-mode-for-Biology-in-dynamic-AC-mode-qp-BioAC :

““Hemostasis requires conversion of fibrinogen to fibrin fibers that generate a characteristic network, interact with blood cells, and initiate tissue repair. The fibrin network is porous and highly permeable, but the spatial arrangement of the external clot face is unknown. Here we show that fibrin transitioned to the blood-air interface through Langmuir film formation, producing a protective film confining clots in human and mouse models. We demonstrated that only fibrin is required for formation of the film, and that it occurred in vitro and in vivo. The fibrin film connected to the underlying clot network through tethering fibers. It was digested by plasmin, and formation of the film was prevented with surfactants. Functionally, the film retained blood cells and protected against penetration by bacterial pathogens in a murine model of dermal infection. Our data show a remarkable aspect of blood clotting in which fibrin forms a protective film covering the external surface of the clot, defending the organism against microbial invasion.”*

Don’t forget to visit NANOSENSORS™ at booth 14-H at the MEMS Sensing & Network Systems 2018 conference and exhibition in Makuhari/Japan this week to learn more about the NANOSENSORS™ MSS (Membrane Type Surface Stress Sensors) dedicated to R&D in the areas of olfactory sensing and electronic noses. https://www.mss-sensor.com/

If you don't have time to attend the exhibition this week then have a look at the MSS video to learn more. https://youtu.be/JP_VoLrGVXs

In the article «Conductive Polymer-Ag Honeycomb Thin Film: The Factors Affecting the Complexity of the Microstructure» cited in the NANOSENSORS™ blog Sajjad Husain Mir and Bungo Ochiai have investigated the factors affecting the micro-structuration of the polymer-Ag honeycomb films and investigated the I-V characteristics. The pore sizes of the polymer-Ag honeycomb films were feasibly tuned by altering various parameters, namely, casting volume, polymer concentration, and molecular weight of the grafted poly(methyl methacrylate) (PMMA) chain.*
The current-sensing scanning probe microscopy (CSSPM) images for this article were taken using a NANOSENSORS™ Platinum-Silicide AFM probe. ( PtSi-CONT ). https://www.nanosensors.com/pdf/platinum_silicide.pdf

Who said that AFM probes can only be used for Atomic Force Microscopy?

In the article “Resonant torsion magnetometry in anisotropic quantum materials” which just appeared in Nature Communications, K. A. Modic, Maja D. Bachmann, B. J. Ramshaw, F. Arnold, K. R. Shirer, Amelia Estry, J. B. Betts, Nirmal J. Ghimire, E. D. Bauer, Marcus Schmidt, Michael Baenitz, E. Svanidze, Ross D. McDonald, Arkady Shekhter and Philip J. W. Moll use the NANOSENSORS™ Akiyama-probe https://www.akiyamaprobe.com/ for resonant torsion magnetometry.

Zn2+-triggered self-assembly of Gonadorelin [6-D-Phe] to produce nanostructures and fibrils

For this article by Yordanova et al. which was published in Nature Scientific Reports the AFM images taken with tapping mode in Tris buffer solution were performed with the NANOSENSORS qp-BioAC (cantilever 3, resonance frequency 30kHz https://www.nanosensors.com/uniqprobe-uniform-quality-spm-probe-contact-or-dynamic-mode-for-Biology-in-dynamic-AC-mode-qp-BioAC ). Please have a look at the NANOSENOSRS blogpost for the full citation of the article.

New post: NANOSENSORS Membrane-type Surface-stress Sensor (MSS) video uploaded - http://www.nanosensors.com/blog/nanosensors-membrane-type-surface-stress-sensor-mss-video-uploaded/?utm_source=Google%2B&utm_medium=Blog&utm_content=NANOSENSORS+Membrane-type+Surface-stress+Sensor+%28MSS%29+video+uploaded&utm_campaign=NANOSENSORS+Blog - NANOSENSORS Blog

A new video about NANOSENSORS™ Membrane-type Surface-stress Sensors (MSS) has been uploaded on the NANOSENSORS™ youtube channel.

The NANOSENSORS™ MSS is a piezoresistive nanomechanical sensor: a silicon membrane platform supported with four beams with integrated piezoresistors. This MEMS sensor is very versatile and primarily designed for R&D in the fields of electronic nose/ odor sensing/ olfactory system. It can also be utilized for material assessment application and measurements of physical parameters in, for example, torque magnetometry.

To find out more please have a look at the new video or at the NANOSENSORS™ MSS webpage http://mss-sensor.com/
