Unformatted text preview: in recent years and it is expected that CNTs will eventually be a high-volume, low-margin commodity business. In this regard, we received funding from several venture capitals such as Malaysian Technology Development Corporation (MTDC), Malaysia Venture Capital Management Bhd (Cradle Investment Program) and Biotech Corp to foster commercialization of CNTs synthesis technology. In 2008, a pilot plant was built for the large scale production of CNTs. The batch type pilot plant consists of 3 horizontal reactors and a vertical reactor. The pilot plant works perfectly according to the design and it can produce 10 kg of CNTs per year. To further increase the productivity, our group has developed a rotary horizontal reactor for the continuous production of CNTs recently, and this is the first continuous CNTs production reactor in Malaysia. The rotary reactor is expected t o produce 1000 kg of CNTs per year. After decade of research in the CNTs synthesis, we have filed a patent for multiple countries on the process and catalyst to produce CNTs. Now, it is the time to move ahead to market the CNTs products and to commercialize the innovative production technology. 54 3rd ICYC 2010 Universiti Sains Malaysia KN-15 23rd-25th June 2010 THE PROTEIN SENSING BY SEQUESTRATION ELECTROCHEMISTRY AND ITS APPLICATIONS 1 Hideki Kuramitz and Kazuharu Sugawara 2 1 Department of Environmental Biology and Chemistry, Graduate School of Sc ience and Engineering for Research, University of Toyama, Toyama 930-8555, Japan 2 Faculty of Engineering, Maebashi Institute of Technology, Maebashi, 371 -0816 Japan E-mail: kuramitz@sci.u-toyama.ac.jp The binding assay is one of the most important methods to detect protein and its ligand in the field of clinical, food and environmental analysis. Generally, the assays are based on a reaction in which an analyte displaces a labeled ligand. Binding assays using a nonisotopic label like an enzyme have increased dramatically in recent years. Electrochemical binding a...
