UCT Silane Cited in Clinical Microbiology Article

In a recent paper authored by Wanyuan Ao et al., published in Journal of Clinical Microbiology ( .1128/JCM.00982-17), UCT’s polymer amine-functional T-structure polydimethylsiloxane ([TSPS] was used in the manufacturing process to coat crystalline silicon wafers in which curing took place at 150°C for 24 hours. The crystalline silicon chip is integral to the analytical process.

UCT Silane Cited in Organ-On-Chip Article

Organ-on-chip platforms aim to improve preclinical models for organ-level responses to novel drug compounds. Heart-on-a-chip assays in particular require tissue engineering techniques that rely on labor-intensive photolithographic fabrication or resolution-limited 3D printing of micro-patterned substrates, which limits turnover and flexibility of prototyping. In a recent paper authored by Janna C. Nawroth et al., published in Biofabrication ( Biofabrication ((2018) 10 025004), UCT’s silane chemicals were used for soft lithography fabrication of stamps for micro-molding hydrogels. The authors developed a rapid and automated method for large scale on-demand micro-patterning of gelatin hydrogels for organ-on-chip applications using a novel biocompatible laser-etching approach.

UCT Specialty Chemical cited in Monolithic Chromatography Study

Monolithic materials are versatile adsorbents widely employed in separation science, sample preparation and as supports for flow through applications (e.g. heterogeneous catalysis, ion-exchange, solid-phase extraction, etc). Interest around their preparation and applications has been steadily on the rise. In a recent paper published in Journal of Chromatography A ((2017) 498 46-55) by Patrizia Simonea et al., UCT’s specialty chemical N-trimethoxysilylpropyl)-polyethylenimine was employed in the production of capillary methacrylate-based monoliths. This process was executed by grafting from/to ƴ -ray polymerization on a tentacle-type reactive surface for the liquid chromatographic separations of small molecules and intact proteins.
