Immobilisation of biomolecules and cells within polymer matrices has gained considerable importance in various fields of biotechnical processes. Such immobilised biomolecules are relevant in the field of red, green and white biotechnology. The present invention relates in a first aspect to a coated polymer system comprising silica-coated polymer and functional components. Said coating of the polymer is obtained by using Si-N precursors having at least two amino groups and, in addition, coating is affected in the presence of the functional component (i.e. biomolecule). Beside the use of encapsulated functional components such as biologicals including catalytic antibodies, DNA, RNA, enzymes, antigens, life bacterial, fungal, plant and animal cells as well as whole protozoa for various uses in red and green biotechnology, bioencapsulation becomes more and more important in the field of white biotechnology. In addition, bioencapsulation may ensure sustained release as well as improved and extended activity of the encapsulated functional components. Moreover, other applications are considered in the field of optical and electrochemical technology, in diagnostic devices but also in the field of green biotechnology.

A genetic defect protects mice from infection with influenza viruses
A new study published in the scientific journal PLOS Pathogens points out that mice lacking a protein called Tmprss2 are no longer affected by certain flu viruses.
The discovery was made by researchers from the Helmholtz Centre for Infection Research (HZI) in Braunschweig in collaboration with colleagues from Göttingen and ...
The Light: Global study gets underway with online user survey
Light has a fundamental impact on our sense of well-being and performance. In cooperation with Zumtobel, a supplier of lighting solutions, Fraunhofer IAO has launched a global user survey of lighting quality in offices. The objective is to identify the best lighting conditions for a variety of spaces and lighting ...
Quantum entanglement, a perplexing phenomenon of quantum mechanics that Albert Einstein once referred to as “spooky action at a distance,” could be even spookier than Einstein perceived.
Physicists at the University of Washington and Stony Brook University in New York believe the phenomenon might be intrinsically linked with wormholes, hypothetical features of space-time that in popular science fiction can provide a much-faster-than-light shortcut from one part of the universe to another.
But here’s the catch: One couldn’t actually ...
A star is formed when a large cloud of gas and dust condenses and eventually becomes so dense that it collapses into a ball of gas, where the pressure heats the matter, creating a glowing gas ball – a star is born.
New research from the Niels Bohr Institute, among others, shows that a young, newly formed star in the Milky Way had such an explosive growth, that it was initially about 100 times brighter than it is now. The results are published in the scientific journal, Astrophysical Journal Letters.
The young ...
