MIPs go Stratospheric!

A visit to the stratosphere demonstrates the exceptional robustness of MIPs which retain their function on return to earth. This was debuted at our Seminar in September 2018.

Abstract: Molecularly imprinted polymers (MIPs) were produced against trypsin and tagged with DyLight 800 fluorescent dyes. Trypsin was immobilised by spotting onto nitrocellulose at various concentrations. The trypsin was then probed with MIPs, before fluorescent images were obtained. Detection of trypsin was compare before and after the sample was sent to the stratosphere and exposed to extreme atmospheric conditions.
