|Modular Bench Top Automation|
Paul Held, Dean Mulyk, Lenore Buehrer and Grace Mangialardi
ELISA is one the most utilized assay formats in biomedical research. Numerous clinical, veterinary, and research assays use the specificity of antibodies to identify a diverse array of analytes from any number of different matrices. This poster details a modular bench top workstation capable of automating the assay process steps of most conventional ELISA assays.
|Screening for Optimal Algal Cell Growth and Neutral Lipid Production Conditions in Microplates|
Paul Held, Xavier Amouretti, Wayne Patton and Peter Banks
Algae based products offer many potential advantages over food based sources of energy, however significant research is still required in order to make them an economically viable option. To date, algal research has not extensively utilized the tool of high throughput screening using microplates that has been successfully employed in fields such as drug discovery.
|Expression of Pluripotency-determining Factors in in vitro Fertilized Buffalo Embryos and Embryonic Stem Cells|
T Anand, D Kumar, M S Chauhan, and P Palta
The POU octamer-binding domain transcription factor Oct-4, Stage-specific embryonic antigens (SSEAs), and Tumor rejection antigens (TRAs), are developmentally regulated during early embryogenesis.
|Antigen Determination in Autoimmune Hepatitis Type1|
Naveen L Gupta, S Nayak, S Shakeyavar
Objectives of this project were to exploit the database in indian setting to determine nuclear antigens as target for antinuclear antibodies (ANA) in patients of autoimmune hapatitis (AIH) type1.
|Effect of Culture Media and Serum Supplementation on the Development of in vitro Fertilized Buffalo Embryos|
D Kumar, T Anand, P Palta and M.S. Chauhan
This poster compares the development of buffalo embryos in simple and complex culture media and aims to determine the effects of serum supplementation on the development of buffalo embryos.
|In Silico Identification of Conserved Domains from EST Database in Safflower|
M. Y. Dudhe, H. P. Meena, A.R.G. Ranganatha, N. Mukta and C. Lavanya
Identified conserved domains or gene families from the ESTs could be utilised for the identification of gene-targeted markers and for development of functional markers to accelerate marker assisted backcross breeding in safflower.
|Antibacterial Activity of Silver Nanoparticles Obtained by Electrochemical Synthesis in Poly(Amide-Hydroxyurethane) Media|
Melnig Viorel, Stefan Marius, Hritcu Lucian, Mihasan Marius, Gostin Irina, Pricop Daniela
Due to the outbreak of the infectious diseases caused by pathogenic bacteria, inorganic nanoparticles (NPs) have emerged up as novel antimicrobial agents.
|Nanoliter Volume Pin Tool Transfers as Measured by a Dual-Dye Absorbance Method|
Duong T. Chau; Patrick H. Cleveland, Ph.D. (V & P Scientific); John Thomas Bradshaw, Ph.D. (ARTEL)
This poster compares the volumes of sample solutions delivered by an array of stainless steel and hydrophobic-coated pins as measured by a fluorescent-dye approach versus a dual-dye absorbance approach.
|Ion Chromatography ICP-Q-MS for the Detection of Arsenic Species in Apple Juice|
Daniel Kutscher, Shona McSheehy-Ducos, Julian Wills and Detlef Jensen
Interest in the determination of Arsenic species in fruit juices has been triggered by recent media reports in the United States claiming that some apple juices may contain high amounts of Arsenic. Inorganic forms of Arsenic (As3+ and As5+) are highly toxic, whereas the organic forms (e.g. arsenobetaine) are not considered toxic. A robust IC-ICP-MS system was developed and shown to be a highly selective and sensitive technique for determination of trace element species.
