This talk will demonstrate a fully integrated sample-to-answer genotyping assay from whole blood. The assay is implemented on a LabDisk and is performed within 2 hours on a small and lightweight instrument. Novel and advanced centrifugal unit operations will be discussed such as integrated pneumatic pumping and automated bead handling.

Flying snakes glide through the air, flattening their bodies to provide lift. But as they glide they seem to swim, undulating their bodies from side to side. Now a team in the United States has used motion capture technology to study snake gliding in precise detail. Their models reveal that undulation is vital for the snake’s stability as they glide from branch to branch.
