The Optical Biosensors and Biophotonics Group is led by Dr Tracy Melvin.
The group's research is focused on the area of micro and nanofabricated devices for bioanalysis or for biomedical applications. These are either optical, microfluidic (Biological Micro Electro Mechanical Systems abbreviated as BioMEMS), or self-assembled devices.
Photonic and microfluidic strategies for the detection of single DNA sequences in serum as methods toward clinical diagnosis
Optical waveguide sensors for highly sensitive detection and quantification of cytokines in biological fluids
