A sensitive colorimetric detection for biomolecules based on aptamer was described. Poly(dimethylsiloxane) (PDMS)-gold nanoparticles (AuNPs) composite film was used as a platform for immobilizing anti-target aptamer. PDMS-AuNPs composite film only covered with aptamer showed high inhibiting ability towards silver reduction, after target molecules were(More)
We present here a binding-induced fluorescence turn-on assay for protein detection. Key features of this assay include affinity binding-induced DNA hybridization and fluorescence enhancement of silver nanoclusters (Ag NCs) using guanine-rich DNA sequences. In an example of an assay for human α-thrombin, two aptamers (Apt15 and Apt29) were used and were(More)
As an emerging category of fluorescent metal nanoclusters, oligonucleotide-templated silver nanoclusters (Ag NCs) have attracted a lot of interest and have shown wide application in biorelated disciplines. However, the weak fluorescence emission and poor permeability to cell membranes tethered further intracellular applications of Ag NCs. AS1411 is an(More)
Imaging samples on a surface by mass spectrometry (MS) requires the combination of MS detection with a scanning mode that enables localized desorption and ionization and/or detection of sample analytes with good spatial resolution. We have developed a new mass spectrometry imaging (MSI) method based on electrostatic spray ionization. It works under ambient(More)
The development of new routes towards the generation of environmentally friendly solar fuels, such as molecular hydrogen (H2) for use in fuel cells, is a grand challenge facing the scientific community. Water splitting, viewed as the sum of the hydrogen evolution reaction (HER) and water oxidation reaction (WOR), represents one of the most promising, yet(More)
We have realized the direct ionization of samples from wells of microtiter plates under atmospheric conditions for mass spectrometry analysis without any liquid delivery system or any additional interface. The microtiter plate is a commercially available 384-well plate without any modification, working as a container and an emitter for electrostatic spray(More)
Electrostatic spray ionization (ESTASI) mass spectrometry imaging (MSI), recently developed to profile spatial distribution of chemical and biochemical molecules on an insulating surface under ambient conditions, has been applied to identify and quantify chemicals from silica gel surfaces. Both hydrophilic or hydrophobic silica plates have been imaged with(More)
A highly sensitive method based on mass-barcoded gold nanoparticles (AuNPs) and immunomagnetic separation has been developed for multiplex allergy diagnosis by MALDI mass spectrometry in a component-resolved manner. Different analytical probes were prepared by coating AuNPs with individual allergenic proteins and mass barcode, represented by polyethylene(More)
