The analytical performance of surface plasmon resonance imaging with charge coupled device detection can be improved significantly by splitting a macroscopic sensing surface into multiple microscopic neighboring sensing and referencing subareas. It is shown that such a multiple referencing reduces intensity fluctuations across the total sensing area and,(More)
The detection limit of surface plasmon resonance (SPR) measurements has been improved by a factor of approximately 2-3.5 if the angle of incidence was near to the reflection minimum of the SPR resonance curve instead at the position of the steepest slope, the standard alignment in SPR imaging. The enhancement of the detection power, a result of(More)
Methylcyclopentadienyl manganese tricarbonyl (MMT) is a fuel additive that has been marketed for use in unleaded gasoline since December 1995. The widespread use of this additive has been suggested to cause health risks, but limitations in data regarding its degradation products and their toxicity prevent an accurate evaluation. To monitor the(More)
A new imaging technique for high-throughput surface plasmon resonance (SPR) measurements is described. It is the application of a CCD camera for simultaneous processing of two images at two different wavelengths provided by two laser diodes. The two lasers are brought to resonance by tuning of the angle of incidence so that the detection power and the(More)
A new technique for on-line monitoring of analyte binding to sensor surfaces by surface plasmon resonance (SPR) detection is described. It is based on differential measurements using two wavelengths provided by two diode lasers. The technique is as simple and robust as the conventional SPR detection measuring the reflected radiation at fixed incidence(More)
Recent proof-of-principle studies demonstrated the suitability of the surface plasmon resonance imaging (SPRi) technique for the detection of individual submicrometer and nanoparticles in solutions. In the current study, we used the SPRi technique for visualization of the binding of round-shaped viruses (inactivated influenza A virus) and virus-like(More)
A simple, compact, and powerful instrument for metal speciation in the ppt range is described. The instrument includes a HPLC module for separation and a diode laser for element-selective detection by wavelength modulation absorption spectrometry in an analytical flame. The high detection power for metal species is due to a two-beam arrangement with(More)
