Our latest research

Polymer-based Electrochemical Sensor: Fast, Accurate, and Simple Insulin Diagnostics Tool

Ivana Šišoláková, Radka Gorejová, Frederika Chovancová, Jana Shepa, Fahanwi Asabuwa Ngwabebhoh, Andrea Straková Fedorková, Petr Sáha & Renáta Oriňaková. Study of the use of polymers with higher conductivity like polypyrrole, and polyaniline in the electrochemical insulin sensors can overcome the drawbacks arising from the ongoing use of non-conductive polymer membrane.

Fucoidan- and Ciprofloxacin-Doped Plasma-Activated Polymer Coatings on Biodegradable Zinc: Hemocompatibility and Drug Release

Radka Gorejová, Kadir Ozaltin, Ivana Šišoláková*, Miriam Kupková, Petr Sáha, and Renáta Oriňaková. . Iron-reinforced zinc material was used as a metallic substrate with improved mechanical properties when compared with those of pure zinc. Poly(lactic) acid (PLA) or polyethylenimine (PEI) was selected as a polymeric matrix for further doping with antibiotic ciprofloxacin (CPR) and marine-sourced polysaccharide fucoidan (FU), which are known for their antibacterial and potential anticoagulant properties, respectively.
