Advances in Hydrogen Peroxide Sensing Presented in Denver and Prague

Malcolm Purdey Low Res Edit 007521 April 2015:

Hydrogen peroxide plays an important role in reproductive health, and recent work from the University of Adelaide node has looked at different ways of detecting hydrogen peroxide in sperm and embryos. Recent advances in non-invasively monitoring hydrogen peroxide concentrations near developing embryos were presented at two international conferences.

The American Chemical Society (ACS) National Congress is a biannual event which gathered 14,000 Chemists from around the world at the Colorado Convention Center in Denver, CO. This work was presented in the Division of Organic Chemistry in a poster entitled “Hydrogen Peroxide Sensing for Reproductive Health”.

An Optics and Optoelectronics conference is run by SPIE in Prague every second year, with over 700 attendees this year at the Clarion Congress Hotel. A paper entitled “Localised Hydrogen Peroxide Sensing for Reproductive Health” was presented at the Optical Sensors Conference along with a presentation from University of Adelaide researcher Matthew Henderson on localised pH sensing.
