Remote-controlled robotic systems are being used for analysis of various types of analytes in hostile environment including those called extraterrestrial. The aim of our study was to develop a remote-controlled robotic platform (ORPHEUS-HOPE) for bacterial detection. For the platform ORPHEUS-HOPE a 3D printed flow chip was designed and created with a(More)
There is an arising and concerning issue in the field of bacterial resistance, which is confirmed by the number of deaths associated with drug-resistant bacterial infections. The aim of this study was to compare the effects of antibiotics on Staphylococcus aureus non-resistant strain and strains resistant to cadmium or lead ions. Metal resistant strains(More)
In this study, we focused on microfluidic electrochemical analysis of zinc complexes (Zn(phen)(his)Cl2, Zn(his)Cl2) and ZnS quantum dots (QDs) using printed electrodes. This method was chosen due to the simple (easy to use) instrumentation and variable setting of flows. Reduction signals of zinc under the strictly defined and controlled conditions (pH,(More)
An electrodeposited palladium and iridium/gold mixture has been investigated as a chemical modifier for mercury determination in environmental samples by solid sampling electrothermal atomic absorption spectrometry. Electrochemical procedures of platform surface modification performed in a cell with 20 ml of solution, and in a drop of modifier solution have(More)
Microfluidic techniques have been developed intensively in recent years due to lower reagent consumption, faster analysis, and possibility of the integration of several analytical detectors into one chip. Electrochemical detectors are preferred in microfluidic systems, whereas liposomes can be used for amplification of the electrochemical signals. The aim(More)
Arsenic compounds belong to the most controversial agents concerning human health. Arsenic (As) is considered as a top environmental element influencing human health due to its adverse effects including cancer, diabetes, cardiovascular disease, and reproductive or developmental problems. Despite the proven mutagenic, teratogenic and carcinogenic effects,(More)
The aim of the study was the preparation of a liposome complex with encapsulated lead ions, which were electrochemically detected. In particular, experiments were focused on the potential of using an electrochemical method for the determination of free and liposome-encapsulated lead and determination of the encapsulation efficiency preventing the lead(More)
