|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.
|An examination of specific cellular organelle-targeting nanotags using combined 3D Raman and SERS imaging |
Katherine Lau, Sarah McAughtrie, Karen Faulds, Duncan Graham
We investigated the specific targeting of endoplasmic reticulum and trans-Golgi network in Chinese hamster ovarian cells using functionalised nanotags. The targeting was examined using the combined 3D SERS and Raman imaging method.
|SOFT DEVICES FOR HEALTHCARE MONITORING APPLICATIONS|
Laura López, Carlos Carenas, Carme de Haro, Cristina Casellas, Elisenda Reixach, Marta Cot, Rosa Rodriguez, Paul Lacharmoise, Úrbez Santana
Printed Electronics allow the creation of new and innovative functionalized textile products, in the demanding and highly specialized world of Medical Devices. The main aim of this whole new sector is to produce wearable, conformable, flexible and low-cost textile-based devices bringing innovative solutions to different markets.
|The Power Decoder simulator for the evaluation of pooled shRNA screen performance|
Jesse Stombaugh, Abel Licon, Žaklina Strezoska, Joshua Stahl, Sarah Bael Anderson, Michael Banos, Anja van Brabant Smith, Amanda Birmingham, Annaleen Vermeulen
Power Decoder (written in R and Python) simulates shRNA pooled screening experiments in silico to allow for the estimation of a screen’s statistical power. Populations of shRNAs were engineered in such a way that the magnitude of depletion and enrichment was known, then using the negative binomial distribution, an in silico model was developed to successfully resemble data from an actual laboratory experiment.
|Polymer Microarrays for Biomaterial Development|

An innovative TGA/IST16/GC/MS coupling is presented.
|DETERMINATION OF THE QUALITY OF ACTIVE INGREDIENTS IN PAIN KILLERS USING GC-MS|
Elizabeth N.M Murago1, Nathan Oyaro1, Anthony N. Gachanja, Onditi O. Anam, Felix M. Mawili, Steve Lancaster
From this study, the pain killers sampled were found to have large error bars suggesting that there exist counterfeit drugs in the market. The brands mostly affected for analysis of acetaminophen were panadol, action, P500, P5500, elymol and neladol. The error bars for caffeine analysis were quite low indicating that all tablets either counterfeit or original maintained the same amount of this active ingredient.
|DETERMINATION OF ESSENTIAL AND HEAVY METALS IN KENYAN HONEY BY ATOMIC ABSORPTION AND EMMISSION SPECTROSCOPY|
A. Mbiri, A. Onditi, N. Oyaro
Generally, honey samples recorded very low concentrations of As compared to the other heavy metals determined in this study. The highest concentration of As was recorded in honey sample from Nairobi with a value of 0.03±0.01 ppm. All the values recorded were within the KEBS permitted value of 0.5 ppm in food according to Kenya Bureaue of Standards, 1996.
