Open Access research that is helping to improve educational outcomes for children

Strathprints makes available scholarly Open Access content by researchers in the School of Education, including those researching educational and social practices in curricular subjects. Research in this area seeks to understand the complex influences that increase curricula capacity and engagement by studying how curriculum practices relate to cultural, intellectual and social practices in and out of schools and nurseries.

Research at the School of Education also spans a number of other areas, including inclusive pedagogy, philosophy of education, health and wellbeing within health-related aspects of education (e.g. physical education and sport pedagogy, autism and technology, counselling education, and pedagogies for mental and emotional health), languages education, and other areas.

Abstract

This work exploits the high-affinity of recombinant antibodies and low background electrochemiluminescence (ECL) for cardiac-biomarker detection. The developed assay is capable of fg mL-1 detection limits as well as the detection of C-Reactive Protein (CRP) over a clinically relevant range. The assay demonstrated robust reproducibility, selectivity and stability while also highlighting a novel platform for detection of cardiac biomarkers at low concentrations.
