|A Microwave/Microfluidics Integrated Label-Free Detection and Content Sensing System for Point-of-Care Applications|
Gurkan Yesiloz, Muhammed S. Boybay, Carolyn L. Ren
This poster presents a droplet-based microfluidic device integrated with a microwave wave sensor, which is also a heater, for simultaneous sensing and heating of individual nanoliter-sized droplets.
|LOHA Comprehensive Assay for Single Nucleotide Polymorphism, Copy Number Variants and Loss of Heterozygosity Using SureSelect Target Enrichment|
Kyeong Soo Jeong, Arjun Vadapalli, Ashutosh Ashutosh, Paula Costa, Brian Peter, Stephanie Fulmer-Smentek, Magnus Isaksson, Jayati Ghosh, Douglas Roberts, Holly Hogrefe
Here we describe a comprehensive assay that enables researchers to identify SNP, INDEL, CNV, and LOH using SureSelect target enrichment. This design can be employed as a standalone entity or in concert with other bait designs for SNP and INDEL detection. We also describe methods for data analysis and visualization.
|Alterations in serum thrombotic biomarker in patients with acute myocardial infarction |
Abdullah S. Alhomida
A combination of these biomarkers could serve as a useful biomarker tool to assess the prognosis of AMI. (This study was supported by National Plan for Science and Technology Program by King Saud University Project Number 08-BIO571-02).
|Improved Small RNA Library Preparation Workflow for Next-Generation Sequencing|
Sabrina Shore, Jordana Henderson, Anton McCaffrey, Gerald Zon, Richard Hogrefe
We describe an optimized small RNA NGS library prep workflow using chemically modified adapters which suppresses adapter dimers, allows for RNA inputs down to 1 ng and eliminates the need for a gel purification step, thus allowing full automation not previously possible.
|Non-invasive Liquid Biopsy|
Frauke Henjes1, Lise Aagaard1, Darren Ellis1, Hannah Lindstroem1, Morten Oksvold2,3, Axl Neurauter1, Ketil W. Pedersen1.
Paramagnetic Dynabeads® magnetic beads provide a versatile, automation friendly tool for fast sensitive and high throughput isolation that can be tailored to isolate specific circulating biomarkers such as cells, exosomes and nucleic acids.
|Flexible automated platform for blood group genotyping on DNA microarrays|
S. Paris1, D. Rigal1, V. Barlet1, M. Verdier1, N. Coudurier2, P. Bailly3, J.-C. Brès1,4
The purpose of this project was to set up and validate a flexible robotic platform using 96-well DNA microarray for multiplex blood group genotyping.
|ENZYME COATED MAGNETIC NANOPARTICLES FOR USE IN CONTINUOUS FLOW MICROFLUIDIC DEVICES|
Ferenc Ender, Diana Weiser, Andras Vitez, Laszlo Poppe
A novel Lab-on-a-Chip platform is presented incorporates micro-sized magnetic reaction cells capable of anchoring protein-coated MNPs addressable and selectively. Such platform allows the design of highly flexible and "programmable" execution of multienzyme processes for biocatalytic or diagnostic purposes.
|Hand-held Automated Instrument for Microchip Electrophoresis with Amperometric Detection|
D.F. Pozo-Ayuso, A. Fernández-la-Villa, M. Castaño-Álvarez
Microchips electrophoresis (ME) in combination with electrochemical detection (ED) can bring a new generation of point-of-care (POC) analysis systems in which would be integrated the main steps of an analytical process.
|Pathogenesis and Clinical Presentation of Throat Candidiasis in Durrës area, Albania|
PhD Cand. Anisa Liti, Prof. Dr. Margarita Hysko
In our study we have analyzed 1317 people, in the Microbiology Laboratory of DRSH, Durrës, Albania, suspected for C. albicans throat infections. Individuals we analysed were females and males, of different age groups, for the period of time between April 2012 and December 2013.
