  • Molecular analysis of the bacterial community in table eggs 

    Alawi, Mohammed Ali (Heriot-Watt University Engineering and Physical Sciences, 2018-04)
    The composition of the bacterial flora on surfaces of table eggs is an important factor in influencing the incidence of egg spoilage. Previous studies have focused on a culturing approach for determining bacterial contamination ...
  • Lessons in solvent design for low dimensional systems using the corresponding distances method 

    Hardy, Adam (Heriot-Watt University Engineering and Physical Sciences, 2018-05)
    Low dimensional materials such as graphene and carbon nanotubes have frequently been hailed as breakthrough materials, however, despite much experimental and theoretical research these two materials have struggled to make ...
  • Studies on heteroporphycene synthesis 

    Cowie, Thomas Y. (Heriot-Watt University Engineering and Physical Sciences, 2018-04)
    Chapter one of this thesis gives an overview of light-matter interactions, organic photochemistry and two-photon absorption spectroscopy. Conceptual beginnings of the project are discussed and target compounds for synthesis ...
  • Affordable flexible hybrid manipulator for miniaturised product assembly 

    Herpe, Xavier (Heriot-Watt University Engineering and Physical Sciences, 2018-05)
    Miniaturised assembly systems are capable of assembling parts of a few millimetres in size with an accuracy of a few micrometres. Reducing the size and the cost of such a system while increasing its flexibility and accuracy ...
  • Development of microfluidic sample preparation devices for circulating nucleic acids isolation at the point of care 

    Liga, Antonio (Heriot-Watt University Engineering and Physical Sciences, 2018-02)
    Liquid biopsy, based on the analysis of blood constituents, and more in particular, the study of circulating nucleic acids (CNAs) in plasma, is a less-invasive alternative to tissue biopsy which is showing great potential ...
