Tuberculosis (TB) is an infectious bacterial disease caused by Mycobacterium tuberculosis. Despite global TB eradication efforts, it is still a global public health concern, especially in low- and middle-income countries. Most of the active TB infections are curable with early diagnosis and appropriate treatment, but drug-resistant TB is difficult and(More)
Metal-nanoparticle-functionalized graphene, in particular, graphene sheets containing Au nanoparticles (Au NPs), have generated considerable interest because of their unique optical and electrical characteristics. In this study, we successfully produced graphene sheets decorated with Au NPs (AuGrp) using phytochemicals as reducing agents. During this(More)
A plasmon-assisted fluoro-immunoassay (PAFI) was developed for the detection of the influenza virus by using Au nanoparticle (Au NP)-decorated carbon nanotubes (AuCNTs) that were synthesized using phytochemical composites at room temperature in deionized water. Specific antibodies (Abs) against the influenza virus were conjugated onto the surface of AuCNTs(More)
Multifunctional nanohybrids have created new and valuable opportunities for a wide range of catalysis and biotechnology applications. Here, we present a relatively simple method for producing nanohybrids composed of gold nanoparticles (Au NPs) and carbon nanotubes (CNTs) that does not require an acidic pre-treatment of the CNTs. Transmission electron(More)
A modified enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA) with nanomaterials is an effective and powerful method to amplify the signal and reduce the cost of detecting and measuring trace biomarkers or proteins. In this study, an ultra-sensitive colorimetric immunoassay was designed, and its ability to detect influenza viruses using positively charged gold(More)
In recent years, much research has been suggested and examined for the development of tissue engineering scaffolds to promote cellular behaviors. In our study, RGD peptide and graphene oxide (GO) co-functionalized poly(lactide-co-glycolide, PLGA) (RGD-GO-PLGA) nanofiber mats were fabricated via electrospinning, and their physicochemical and thermal(More)
One-dimensional magnetoplasmonic nanochains (MPNCs) were self-assembled using Au-coated Fe3O4 core-shell superparamagnetic nanoparticles (Fe3O4@Au NPs) by applying an external static magnetic field. The assembly mechanism of the Fe3O4@Au NPs was investigated thoroughly, revealing that substrate-particle interactions, van der Waals forces, and magnetic(More)
Nanomaterials without chemical linkers or physical interactions that reside on a two-dimensional surface are attractive because of their electronic, optical and catalytic properties. An in situ method has been developed to fabricate gold nanoparticle (Au NP) films on different substrates, regardless of whether they are hydrophilic or hydrophobic surfaces,(More)
Optical transparency and mechanical flexibility are both of great importance for significantly expanding the applicability of superhydrophobic surfaces. Such features make it possible for functional surfaces to be applied to various glass-based products with different curvatures. In this work, we report on the simple and potentially cost-effective(More)
Tuberculosis (TB) remains a relevant infectious disease in the 21st century, and its extermination is still far from being attained. Due to the extreme infectivity of incipient TB patients, a rapid sensing system for proficient point-of-care (POC) diagnostics is required. In our study, a plastic-chip-based magnetophoretic immunoassay (pcMPI) is introduced(More)
