Malaria therapy reinoculation data were examined for the possible detection of effects attributable to stable individual host-specific factors, through correlation between descriptive variables of first and second infections. Such an effect was demonstrated with respect to the first local maximum of the asexual parasite density, i.e., the density at which a(More)
A soft stylus microelectrode probe has been developed to carry out scanning electrochemical microscopy (SECM) of rough, tilted, and large substrates in contact mode. It is fabricated by first ablating a microchannel in a polyethylene terephthalate thin film and filling it with a conductive carbon ink. After curing the carbon track and lamination with a(More)
The substrate-generation/tip-collection mode of scanning electrochemical microscopy was used to detect hydrogen peroxide formed as an intermediate during oxygen reduction at various electrodes. The experiment is conceptually similar to rotating ring-disk experiments but does not require the production of a ring-disk assembly for the specific electrode(More)
Scanning electrochemical microscopy has been used to analyze the flux of p-aminonophenol (PAP) produced by agglomerates of polymeric microbeads modified with galactosidase as a model system for the bead-based heterogeneous immunoassays. With the use of mixtures of enzyme-modified and bare beads in defined ratio, agglomerates with different saturation levels(More)
The BEM algorithm developed earlier for steady-state experiments in the scanning electrochemical microscopy (SECM) feedback mode has been expanded to allow for the treatment of more than one independently diffusing species. This allows the treatment of substrate-generation/tip-collection SECM experiments. The simulations revealed the interrelation of sample(More)
The formalism for simulating scanning electrochemical microscopy (SECM) experiments by boundary element methods in three space coordinates has been extended to allow consideration of nonlinear boundary conditions. This is achieved by iteratively refining the boundary conditions that are encoded in a boundary condition matrix. As an example, the simulations(More)
Patterned cell cultures obtained by microcontact printing have been modified in situ by a microelectrochemical technique. It relies on lifting cell-repellent properties of oligo(ethylene glycol)-terminated self-assembled monolayers (SAMs) by Br2, which is produced locally by an ultramicroelectrode of a scanning electrochemical microscope (SECM). After Br2(More)
Taking the advantage of the stability and penetrability of polyelectrolyte films formed by layer-by-layer (LbL) deposition, noble metal particles of Pd and Pt were fabricated in a preformed polyeletrolyte multilayer film by galvanic deposition. The metal deposition occurred as metal particles and they were tested for their properties as electrocatalyst for(More)
