Shweta Bhagwat (b), Vibha Jayaraj* (b), Priyanka Parte (a), Sameer Jadhav (b)
We show the design of a device for studying sperm chemotaxis and the testing of different chemicals as a source of chemoattractants.
|A pico-liter semi-automated screening method for morphological identification of microorganisms from environmental samples|
Ms. Charmi Chande, Dr. Ravindra Phadke
An economically feasible microfabrication protocol was developed for fabricating micro features used for bacterial analysis from environmental samples like soil and green sulfur bacteria sample. Organisms were classified in 11 morphotypes by using open source Image analysis software named CMEIAS and the standardized protocol was confirmed by viable count and pure culture study

Esmail Abdullah Mohammed Basheer, Hayder A.Abdul Bari
The design of new biosesnor base on microfluidic system is presented. The design is consist of two chips, Microchannels chip and electrodes chip. By varying the size and optimizing the microchannels and electrode, the sensitivity of the biosensor will increase.
|Novel Approaches to High-throughput Measurements of Replicative Lifespan in Yeast by Microfluidic Size Sorting and Genetic Engineering|
Ilka Lewrenz, Stephanie Wälter, Jacqueline Franke
Development of a high-throughput screen utilizing a microfluidic device and a linearly growing yeast strain to simultaneously test the influence of various drugs on the replicative lifespan of yeast.
|Significant Increase of Sensitivity on Rapid Influenza Antigen Assays Using Silver Amplification Immunochromatography.|
Satoshi KIMURA1), Hideyoshi OHTO2), Hayato YAMAGUCHI1), Seiji FUKUOKA1), Emiko NAKAMA1), Akiko TERADA3), and Yoh UMEDA2)
We have developed a new rapid bed-side assay system for in vitro diagnosis of infectious diseases, using “silver amplification method”, an application of photography-developing technology. The automatic analyzer brings results in fifteen minutes, enhancing sensitivity up to 1000 times compared to the conventional immunochromatography. We applied the technology for diagnosis of hospitalized children. The analyzer was useful for rapid and precise diagnosis of influenza A and B.
