1. Mouse Cell Line Authentication
Published: 2/13/2013
Authors: Jamie L Almeida, Carolyn R Steffen, Kenneth D Cole
Abstract: The scientific community has responded to the misidentification of human cell lines with validated methods to authenticate these cells; however, there are few assays available for nonhuman cell line identification. We have developed a multiplex poly ...

2. Authentication of African green monkey cell lines using human short tandem repeat markers
Published: 11/7/2011
Authors: Jamie L Almeida, Carolyn R Steffen, Kenneth D Cole
Abstract: A multiplex PCR assay utilizing eight human short tandem repeat (STR) markers was developed for the authentication of vervet monkey cell lines. Labeled forward primers were used to amplify the targeted STR marker region and amplified products were s ...

3. Electrochemical Inactivation of Bacillus Spores in Water Using a Quaternary Oxide Electrode
Published: 11/1/2011
Authors: Vytautas Reipa, Andrea Giovannozzi, Jamie L Almeida, Kenneth D Cole
Abstract: Bacillus thuringiensis (BT) spores and B. anthracis Sterne (BA) spores were used to investigate the effectiveness of electrochemical disinfection processes using different solution and operational conditions. We tested several anode materials for di ...

4. The Latest and Greatest NIST PCR-based DNA Profiling Standard: Updates and Status of Candidate Standard Reference Material (SRM) 2391c
Published: 11/1/2011
Authors: Margaret C Kline, Carolyn R Steffen, Jamie L Almeida, Erica L Romsos, Michael D Coble, John M Butler
Abstract: Standard Reference Material 2391c (SRM 2391c) PCR-based DNA Profiling Standard is the third renewal of this SRM, originally released in 1995. SRM 2391c consists of 6 candidate components labeled A through F. Components A through D are supplied as gen ...

5. A mechanistically relevant cytotoxicity assay based on the detection of cellular GFP
Published: 8/1/2009
Authors: Michael W Halter, Jamie L Almeida, Alessandro Tona, Kenneth D Cole, Anne L Plant, John T Elliott
Abstract: Cell-based assays for measuring ribosome inhibition by proteins such as the plant toxin ricin are important for characterizing decontamination strategies and developing detection technologies for field use. We report here an assay for ricin that prov ...

6. Measurement of the Concentration of Bacillus Anthracis Spores by DNA Content: Comparison to Plate and Microscope Counts and the Use of Inactivated Materials
Published: 5/13/2008
Authors: Jamie L Almeida, Bruce Harper, Kenneth D Cole
Abstract: Reliable measurements of the concentration of Bacillus anthracis (BA) spore suspensions are essential for the production of useful reference materials that can be used to test detection devices and laboratory instruments. In this study, we have compa ...

7. Long-Term Monitoring of Biofilm Growth and Disinfection Using a Quartz Crystal Microbalance and Reflectance Measurements
Published: 9/1/2006
Authors: Vytautas Reipa, Jamie L Almeida, Kenneth D Cole
Abstract: An biofilm reactor was constructed that allows for real-time monitoring of the growth and removal of biofilms by monitoring the response of a quartz crystal mircrobalance (QCM) and a novel method of measuring the reflectance of light off the surface ...

8. Requirements for the Development of Bacillus Anthracis Spore Reference Materials Used to Test Detection Systems
Series: Journal of Research (NIST JRES)
Published: 5/1/2006
Authors: Jamie L Almeida, Lili Wang, Jayne B Morrow, Kenneth D Cole
Abstract: Bacillus anthracis spores have been used as biological weapons and the possibility of their further use requires surveillance systems that can accurately and reliably detect their presence in the environment. These systems must collect samples, proce ...
