Abstract : The goal of this proposal is to purchase the GWC Technologies, Inc. Horizontal Surface Plasmon Resonance Imaging (SPRi) System,Keyence Corporation of America Digital Microscope Controller System, and two Fisher Scientific FH100 Multichannel peristaltic pumps. The cadre of instruments will be used in two research projects integral to the mission of the Department of Defense (DoD) that will significantly enhance the quality of the STEM program at CSULA. Built on the productive research of Gomez in the development of microfluidics, SPR, and capillary electrophoresis (CE) separations, this equipment/instrumentation acquisition proposal, aims at further developing transformative research showcasing the high sensitivity and high throughput of SPRi in two research projects: 1) The Detection of Organophosphorus Compounds via an Enzyme Inhibition Concept, and; 2) The Development of SPRi-Based Detection of Explosives on a Microfluidic Platform.
