|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.
|Electric Field-Induced Release and Measurement (EFIRM) can detect EGFR mutations directly from body fluids of lung cancer patients|
Fang Wei, Chien-Chung Lin,Szu-Chun Yang, Aron Joon, Ziding Feng, Gabriel Troche, Maruja E. Lira, David Chia, Mao Mao, Chung-Liang Ho, Wu-Chou Su, and David T. W. Wong
In patients with NSCLC, Electric Field–Induced Release and Measurement (EFIRM) can detect EGFR mutations directly in saliva. This enables clinicians to adjust their therapeutic strategies in a timely fashion, consequently improving the clinical outcome of EGFR-targeted therapy.
|Continuous Collection of Stem Cells from a Human Placenta Perfusion Co-Culture|
John J.S. Cadwell & James C. Hardy
The potential for human placenta-derived cells to produce stem cells in a hollow fiber bioreactor co-culture system was investigated.
|Dry-mass sensing for microfluidics|
T. Müller, D. A. White, and T. P. J. Knowles
The dry mass of analyte from microchannels is measured by means of spray-drying on an electromechanical sensor with nanogram sensitivity.
|THE MASTOCYTOSIS SOCIETY SURVEY ON MAST CELL DISORDERS: Part 2-Clinical Experiences, Co-Morbidities, Diet, Families and Opinions|

Mast cell diseases such as mastocytosis and mast cell activation syndromes involve abnormal proliferation or activation of these cells leading to many potentially debilitating symptoms. In order to determine the characteristics and experiences of people known or suspected to have a mast cell disorder, The Mastocytosis Society (TMS), a U.S. based patient advocacy, research and education organization, conducted a survey of patients.
|Rate and Mechanistic Investigation of Eu(OTf)2-Mediated Reduction of Graphene Oxide at Room Temperature|
Tufan Ghosh, Sandeepan Maity and Edamana Prasad
Eu(OTf)2 has been introduced as an efficient reagent for the reduction of graphene oxide. Details kinetic studies have been performed which suggests that, the method is more efficient compared to that of other commonly used reduction methods.
|Electrical Fusion Machine - New electrical fusion system for x-ray fluorescence analysis|
Dr. Rainer Schramm, FLUXANA GmbH & Co. KG; Prof. Marie-Louise Klotz, Hochschule Rhein-Waal, Dr. Myint Myint Sein, Hochschule Rhein-Waal
This poster describes sample preparation in x-ray fluorescence analysis using the Electrical Fusion Machine by FLUXANA.
|Fluorescent Nanoprobes Confined in a Drop as a novel Sensing Platform for Detection of Metal Species at Trace Level|
Carlos Bendicho, Isabel Costas-Mora, Vanesa Romero, Isela Lavilla
In the last years, a great interest has arisen concerning the design and development of new optical probes for the sensitive and selective detection of chemical species making use of miniaturized and environmental friendly methods. In this sense, quantum dots (QDs) and metal nanoclusters (NCs) have important optical properties to be applied in analytical systems as fluorescent probes.
