|Finite element modelling for the optimization of temperature control in Lab-on-a-Chip devices|
T. Pardy(a,b); T. Rang(a); I. Tulp(b)
The presented finite element model aims to help in the development of Lab-on-a-Chip devices which require temperature control. The model simulates the thermal system in such devices to enable in silico validation of designs and geometry optimization, and aims to be a versatile tool supporting multiple temperature control methods.
|Development of an Integrated Paper-based Molecular Diagnostic Platform|
Manoharanehru Branavan, Wamadeva Balachandran
The poster describes a modular development of a paper-based molecular diagnostic device and the latest results obtained from a proof-of-concept device.
|Advanced Microfluidic Mixing Device for the Study of Macromolecule Dynamics|
Shubha Jain, F. Azam, Dr. H. N. Unni
We have developed and characterized a micro-fluidic mixer to study the macro-molecule dynamics such as kinetics of protein folding, DNA sequencing, single molecule study and detection etc. on a micro-second timescale. Numerical simulation has been performed to analyse the study of mixing performance of micro-fluidics channel.
|A combined cell placement and migration assay device for cancer cell anti-migration drug screening|
Colin L. Hisey1,2, Oihane Mitxelena-Iribarren2,3, Miguel Martinez-Calderon2, Sergio Arana2,3, Maite Mujika2,3, S.M. Olaizola2, Derek J. Hansford1
We have developed a microfluidic device capable of hydrodynamically trapping cells over polymer lines which encourage 1D migration based on topographical cues. These lines have been fabricated with both femtosecond laser ablation and dewetting/stamping. This type of precise control will allow precise microfluidic assessment of potential drug targets to limit cancer cell migration.
|Analysis of Terpenes Using Gas Chromatography with Vacuum Ultraviolet |
Changling Qiu, Jonathan Smuts, Phillip Walsh, and Kevin A. Schug
The VUV absorption spectra for different terpenes were distinctive and differentiable. GC-VUV demonstrated the capabilities for qualitative and quantitative analysis of terpenes in turpertine mixtures. Chromatographic coeluting signals can be deconvolved by the VUV data analysis software.
|Mobility of Aeroallergens in Home: Effect of Location of Air Sampling and Implication for Evaluation of Patient Exposure|
Julian Gordon1, Paul Detjen, Andrea Wachter & Prasanthi Gandhi1
The Inspirotec sampler permitted the easy testing of multiple locations within a household. Air sampling simultaneously at 12 locations by other technologies would have been technically challenging. These were run by an untrained operator.
|Lutjanus jocu (Dog snapper) as a bio-indicator of emerging contaminants and changes in environmental condition.|
M. Sánchez-García1, S. J. Zottoli2 & L.Roberson-Murillo1
Our research assesses the use of Lutjanus jocu as a bioindicator of changes in environmental condition and water contaminated with toxic substances in estuarine ecosystems.
|Selective Debenzylation of N-Benzyloxypyrazinones in Flow|
Anh Hung MAI - Cedrick VERYSER - Wim DE BORGGRAEVE
Selective and reproducible debenzylation of benzyloxypyrazinones by using catalytic transfer hydrogenation in flow chemistry to yield N-hydroxypyrazinones. The flow methodology enabled us to avoid overreduction of the compounds to pyrazin-2(1H)-ones.
|Differences in the Neurophysiology of Infants with Down Syndrome May Predict Protective/Risk Markers for Subsequent Alzheimer’s Disease|
Esha Massand1,2, Hana D’Souza1,2, George Ball1,2, Maria Eriksson1, Charlotte Dennison1, Joanna Ball1 & Annette Karmiloff-Smith1,2
Our work set out to understand early individual differences in memory abilities of infants with DS that may be predictive of subsequent cognitive phenotypes of AD.
