Using electronic detection to enhance performance of HPLC equipped with UV-Vis optical detection

In this internship, UNS-Tech will partner with Prof. Woolley to detect products of interest to his lab using UNS-e-chip. The antibiotics, developed by Prof. Woolley, are novel systems that can be activated by light or enzymes. The assay will employ UNS-Tech’s state-of-the-art electronics-based detectors for HPLC. The results will be analyzed and the findings will be published in scientific journals. The intern will benefit from this internship by gaining tremendous knowledge of synthesis of products of great value to the pharmaceutical industry. Furthermore, he will gain insight into use of state-of-the-art electronics-based detection and beta testing of electronic detectors. The host company will benefit by having an opportunity to beta test their technology in a cutting edge application and to evaluate its electronic detectors against present art detectors, hopefully proving superiority over present art detectors. The supervisor will benefit by having access to state-of-the-art detection technology that will enhance the performance of his HPLC.
