|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.
|Rapid Detection of Somatic Mutations in Cancer Genes|
Michael J. Powell et. al.,
Rapid higly sensitive detection of tumor gene mutations in DNA derived from FFPE or plasma samples can be achieved with QClamp PCR technology.
|Accurate Normalization of Grain Samples Using Pressure-Based Volume Measurement Technology|
Bill Gigante, John Thomas Bradshaw, Tanya Knaide
A common challenge experienced by sample screening facilities is identifying individual sample quantity prior to DNA extraction. Accurately identifying sample quantity allows the user to pipette exact amounts of extraction buffer into each well.
|DHPLC Technology as a High-throughput Detection of Mutations in a Durum Wheat TILLING Population|
Colasuonno P.1, Incerti O. 1, Lozito M.L. 1, Sbalzarini M. 2, Zaccagna P. 2, Papadimitriou S. 2, Blanco A. 1, Gadaleta A. 1
This study is a beautiful example of DHPLC technology application and shows an alternative tool to current strategies of SNP detection based on genotyping array.
|IDENTIFICATION AND DIFERENTIATION OF Verticillium SPECIES WITH PCR MARKERS AND SEQUENCING OF ITS REGION|
Taja Jesenicnik, Nataša Štajner, Jernej Jakše, Sebastijan Radišek and Branka Javornik
The genus Verticillium is a group of ascomycete fungi, including plant-pathogenic species capable of affecting the vasculature of many agricultural crops, and therefore causes major economic losses worldwide. In 2011, a new taxonomic classification of the genus was proposed, which is now referred to as Verticillium sensu stricto, comprising ten species: V. dahliae V. albo-atru, V. alfalfae, V. longisporum, V. nonalfalfae, V. tricorpus, V. zaregamsianum, V. nubilum, V. isaacii and V. klebahnii. <
|Expression Profiling of Circulating Tumor Cells: a Prognostic and Predictive Biomarker in Cancer.|
Mikael Kubista, Robert Sjöback,Marie Jindrichova, Eva Rohlova, Vendula Novosadová, Siegfrid Hauch, Bahriye Aktas, Mitra Tewes,Maren Bredemeier, and SabineKasimir-Bauer
We show non-responders to treatment among breast cancer patients can be identified by expression profiling of circulating tumor cells
|Detection in Environmental Samples of Enteroagregative Escherichia coli, stx-producing Escherichia coli and stx-converting Bacteriophage by RT- PCR: Preliminary Data|
Mura Elia, Noli Alessia Caterina, Rossi Maria Lucia, Terrosu Giovanni, Fadda Antonio
The aim of this work was to collect epidemiological information concerning the presence of Enteroaggregative Escherichia coli, stx-producing Escherichia coli and stx2a-converting bacteriophage, in ruminants faeces.
|Effect of exposure to stress conditions on propidium monoazide (PMA) - qPCR based enumeration of Campylobacter in broiler carcass rinses|
A. Duarte1,2*, N. Botteldoorn2 ,W. Coucke2, S. Denayer2, K. Dierick2, and M. Uyttendaele1
Evaluation and comparison of a developed PMA-qPCR Campylobacter enumeration method with the reference method, after exposure of the broiler rinse artificially contaminated with the bacteria to stress conditions.
|Quantitative Real-time PCR differentiation between Genetically Modified pollen and Genetically Modified flour in honey|
Eugénia de Andrade1*, Maria Lopes2, Maria Clara Fernandes1, Fátima Quedas2, Isabel Rodrigues1, Amélia Maria Lopes1
We investigated the ability of quantitative real-time PCR, using plasmids calibrants, together with the triploid maize seed endosperm and the haploid pollen, to get good estimates for the copy number of a transgene in relation to the copy number of a species specific gene as a mean to distinguish between pollen and flour from maize.
