Improved Cleaning of Hydrophilic Protein-Coated Surfaces using the Combination of Nanobubbles and SDS

Liu, Guangming; Craig, Vincent


The use of nanobubbles, the common surfactant sodium dodecyl sulfate (SDS), and nanobubbles in combination with SDS as cleaning agents to remove lysozyme from the solid-liquid interface has been investigated using a quartz crystal microbalance on both hydrophobic and hydrophilic surfaces. On the hydrophobic surface, significant amounts of protein remained on the surface after 10 cycles of nanobubble treatment for 10 s periods in phosphate buffer. The cleaning efficiency of SDS was far superior...[Show more]
