Fluorescence cross-correlation spectroscopy (FCCS) is a highly sensitive fluorescence technique with distinct advantages in many bioanalytical applications involving interaction and binding of multiple components. Due to the use of multiple beams, bulk optical FCCS setups require delicate and complex alignment procedures. We demonstrate the first(More)
We present a fully planar integrated optofluidic platform that permits single particle detection, manipulation and analysis on a chip. Liquid-core optical waveguides guide both light and fluids in the same volume. They are integrated with fluidic reservoirs and solid-core optical waveguides to define sub-picoliter excitation volumes and collect the optical(More)
We demonstrate detection and analysis of the Qbeta bacteriophage on the single virus level using an integrated optofluidic biosensor. Individual Qbeta phages with masses on the order of attograms were sensed and analyzed on a silicon chip in their natural liquid environment without the need for virus immobilization. The diffusion coefficient of the viruses(More)
We describe analysis and control of 50S ribosomal subunits by a solid-state 45nm diameter nanopore incorporated in a microfluidic chip. When used as a resistive pulse sensor, translocation of single 50S subunits through the nanopore produces current blockades that have a linear dependence on applied voltage. Introduction of individual subunits into the(More)
Local wars and major catastrophes of the last years have originated a new approach to a problem of anesthetic management at the various phases of evacuation. In cases of mass casualty admission it must be taken an option between field block anesthesia and general intravenous anesthesia with spontaneous breathing or artificial lung ventilation. In many(More)
