Zimmer&Peacock is attending the 8th International Workshop on Surface Modification for Chemical and Biochemical Sensing in Żelechów, Poland!
The use of sensor-based analytical procedures, originally focused on chemical and biochemical tests, is gaining increasing interest, among others, in environmental toxicity testing, for ecosystem monitoring, clinical diagnostics and therapy, as well as for testing of crops and foods of animal origin.
A continuous increase of interest in sensor-based analytical techniques is manifested by the increase of the number of both scientific papers published and patents registered. Toward this interest, a series of our Workshops is organized. Being encouraged by success of the previous seven International Workshops on Surface Modification for Chemical and Biochemical Sensing held since 2003 in Poland, the organizers hope that also the coming 8th SMCBS Workshop will successfully become a platform for researchers to meet for discussing in-depth, exchange and generate ideas. We expect that this activity will stimulate new, and most expectantly, collaborative research.
As previous workshops, the coming one will be focused on the art of both chemical and non-chemical decorating of solid transducer surfaces as well as recognition activity of the resulting sensors toward target analytes. Main topics of the Workshop will cover various aspects of surface chemistry related to chemo- and biosensing in solutions or gases not being limited to:
Chemical surface reactions
Self-assembled monolayers (SAMs)
Langmuir and Langmuir-Blodgett (LB) films
Preparation and properties of supported membranes
Chemically modified electrodes
Enzyme modified electrodes and polymer modified electrodes
Novel techniques and instrumentation for examining surfaces
Recognition signal transduction and processing
Detection techniques and protocols
Miniaturization of analytical systems and the nanotechnology use
Zimmer&Peacock will make the exhibition of our latest products and will share the business ideas with the audience regarding the biosensing applications in medical diagnostics!
