  1. Insulator-based dielectrophoresis (iDEP) is the motion of particles due to a force from a uniform electric field. IDEP is useful in the manipulation of particles, cells and even organelles. However, IDEP forces scale dependent upon the geometry, making separation, preconcentration and fractionation difficult to achieve large-scale. Furthermore, the...

  2. The ability to profile the genome and transcriptome, comprehensively, in single cells, in situ, is crucial to understanding the underlying mechanisms involved in cancer, neurobiology and stem cell biology. However, most of the existing tools can only quantify a small number of different nucleic acids in a sample and gene expression variations and s...

  4. Aminoglycoside antibiotics are known to prevent growth of gram-negative bacteria by inhibiting protein synthesis. Aminoglycosides possess biocompatible sugar groups as well as multiple amines in the same molecule. Their tenability, biocompatibility and natural affinity towards biomolecules make them excellent candidates for generating diverse resin...

  7. As a method for surgical repair, suturing is ubiquitous, and has changed little in modern medicine. Conventional suture techniques still have problems with friable and difficult to close tissues. Current suture alternatives, such as staples, clamps and adhesives, while offering convenience to the surgeon and quicker procedure times, still suffer fr...

  8. Radiotherapy is a common medical procedure, especially for the treatment of cancers such as head and neck, breast prostate, lung and rectum. It is a complex process aimed at maximizing delivery of the planned dose to the tumor sites while minimizing unnecessary radiation to healthy tissues. Today, radiotherapy procedures make use of image guidance ...

  9. Enzyme-induced carbonate precipitation (EICP) is a technique used for soil stabilization. EICP cements soil particles together using urease enzymes to precipitate calcium carbonate in a water-based solution. EICP may be used as a means of improving the bearing capacity of soils, preventing erosion, and mitigating the potential for earthquakeÔÇÉinduce...
