UCT Specialty Chemical cited in Mechanobiology Study

In a recent article published in Lab on a Chip, authors Donghee Lee et al., (DOI: 10.1039/C8LC00320C), used UCT’s specialty chemical (Tridecafluoro-1, 1, 2, 2-Tetrahydrooctyl)-1- Trichlorosilane (T2492-KG) in a mold-making process. This involved the production of a microfluidic cell compression device that improved a microfluidic device proposed previously by equipping it with an array of cell compression units. The device contained a 5×5 array of alginate-chondrocyte constructs. This microfluidic cell was employed to investigate human cartilage cells. T2492-KG played an integral part of this procedure.

UCT Derivatizing Reagent cited in Forensic Anthropology Study

In a recent study, authored by Susan Luong et al., (Forensic Science International ((2018), 285 93-104)) UCT’s derivatizing reagent O-Bis(trimethylsilytrifluoroacetamide) containing 1% trimethylchlorosilane (BSTFA (1% TMCS)) was employed to assist with the gas chromatographic-mass spectrometric (GC-MS) analysis of a cadaveric break down product. In this research, a human cadaver was placed on the surface of a designated plot at the Australian Facility for Taphonomic Experimental Research (AFTER), the only human decomposition facility in Australia. The natural process of decomposition was allowed to progress over fourteen days during the summer.

UCT Specialty Chemicals Cited in Cancer Study Article

In a recent paper authored by Xiaoying Wang published in Talanta ((2018) 187 179-187), UCT’s specialty chemicals Tetraethylorthosilicate (TEOS) and trimethoxysilylpropy-diethylenetriamine (DETA) were employed in the process to produce an electrochemiluminescence (ECL) biosensor for detection of CdkN2A/p16 anti-oncogene based on functional electrospun nanofibers and core-shell luminescent composite nanoparticles.
