Selection of novel ligands and their application in biomonitoring

Elke Boschke

Institute of Food Technology and Bioprocess Engineering

Fast monitoring of the microbiological state is highly important, not only in medical diag\ADnostics, but also in the pharmaceutical and food industries. But there are constitutional problems with detection of contaminants and pathogens respectively. These drawbacks are outlined and some new approaches in microbiology are introduced in particular the use of Biomagnetic Separation for pre-enrichment and Surface Plasmon Resonance Spectroscopy as a tool for germ detection. In that context selection of novel ligands \u2013 nucleic acid- and peptide-aptamers \u2013 is required to replace cost-intensive and unstable antibodies.

Brief Bio:

Elke Boschke was educated at State University Donezk (Ukraine) and received her Ph.D. in Biology from the Technische Universit\E4t Dresden in 1984. At the same University she habilitated in 2007. Currently, she is a Group leader at the Institute of Food Technology and Bioengineering of the TU Dresden. Her professional interests include some facets of Biomonitoring such as use of Biomagnetic Separation for pre-enrichment of contaminants and pathogens and their subsequent detection for example with Surface Plasmon Resonance or Microcalorimetry. In that context novel ligands, such as aptamers or phage displayed peptides are under development.
