When aluminum alloy is exposed to air, an anti-oxidant coating will be formed instantly to protect products. Aluminum alloy is one of the lightest metals. The application of products ranges from precision technology to daily commodities. - Surface Condition: One side bright, the other side matte (for double rolled) Two sides bright (for single rolled) – Surface Treatment: Lubrication, Lamination, Coating – Core Type and Size : Type: Aluminum, Sheel, Fiber Core ID: 75mm, 76.2mm, 150mm, 152.4mm, 300mm, 400mm Aluminum and aluminum alloy foil can be widely applied in containers, packaging, household & institutional foil, food service products, foil building products, aluminum foil capacitors, aluminum foil finstock, aluminum foil strip conductor, aluminum honeycomb, aluminum foil printing plates, nameplates & product labels, caul stock, foil printing stocks, etc. Chemical Composition conforms to Chinese, American and European standa...

Towards ultrasensitive malaria diagnosis using surface enhanced Raman spectroscopy

We report two methods of surface enhanced Raman spectroscopy (SERS) for hemozoin detection in malaria infected human blood. In the first method, silver nanoparticles were synthesized separately and then mixed with lysed blood; while in the second method, silver nanoparticles were synthesized directly inside the parasites of Plasmodium falciparum. It was observed that the first method yields a smaller variation in SERS measurements and stronger correlation between the estimated contribution of hemozoin and the parasitemia level, which is preferred for the quantification of the parasitemia level. In contrast, the second method yields a higher sensitivity to a low parasitemia level thus could be more effective in the early malaria diagnosis to determine whether a given blood sample is positive. Malaria is a global disease which causes 584,000 deaths per ...
