Topic: Life Sciences Research
Published: 10/28/2012
Authors: Conni Hanke, Petra S. Dittrich, Darwin R Reyes-Hernandez
Abstract: A cell co-culture was generated on opposite sides of a permeable polyester membrane (PET) membrane by combining dielectrophoretic (DEP) and electrostatic forces to hold cells against gravity in a multilayer microfluidic device (Figure 1). HepG2 cell ...

22. Characterization of In Vitro Transcription Amplification Linearity and Variability in the Low Copy Number Regime using ERCC Spike Ins
Topic: Life Sciences Research
Published: 10/20/2012
Authors: Jason G Kralj, Marc L Salit
Abstract: Background Characterization of whole transcriptomes from small RNA samples (less than 1 ng total RNA) has been a major challenge. Typically, samples are extracted and purified, amplified by in vitro transcription (IVT), and then subjected to genome- ...

23. A New Measure in Cell Image Segmentation Data Analysis
Series: NIST Interagency/Internal Report (NISTIR)
Report Number: 7871
Topic: Life Sciences Research
Published: 7/24/2012
Authors: Jin Chu Wu, Michael W Halter, Raghu N Kacker, John T Elliott
Abstract: Cell image segmentation (CIS) is critical for quantitative imaging in cytometric analyses. The data derived after segmentation can be used to infer cellular function. To evaluate CIS algorithms, first for dealing with comparisons of single cells trea ...

24. Fabrication of Microelectrodes on Polyester Membranes for Dielectrophoretic Cell Capture
Topic: Life Sciences Research
Published: 6/18/2012
Authors: Conni Hanke, Petra S. Dittrich, Darwin R Reyes-Hernandez
Abstract: We present a new system for cell capturing on permeable polyester (PET) membranes using dielectrophoretic forces. For the first time gold microelectrodes were fabricated on PET membranes using conventional photolithographic techniques. Their charac ...

25. Challenges in Microbial Sampling in the Indoor Environment
Series: Technical Note (NIST TN)
Report Number: 1737
Topic: Life Sciences Research
Published: 3/1/2012
Authors: Jayne B Morrow, Autumn S. Downey, Jordan Peccia
Abstract: This report summarizes the results of the Challenges in Microbial Sampling in the Indoor Environment Workshop held on February 14-15, 2011 at the National Institute of Standards and Technology in Gaithersburg, Maryland.

26. Mathematical Model Formulation and Validation of Water and Cryoprotective Agent Transport in Whole Hamster Pancreatic Islets
Topic: Life Sciences Research
Published: 10/11/2011
Authors: James D. Benson, Charles T Benson, John K Critser
Abstract: A mathematical and conceptual model of water and solute transport for whole hamster pancreatic islets has been developed and experimentally validated incorporating fundamental biophysical data from previous studies on individual hamster islet cells ...

27. Microfluidic Transport and Sensing of Functionalized Superparamagnetic Beads with Integrated Spin-Valves
Topic: Life Sciences Research
Published: 10/2/2011
Authors: Wendy R. Altman, John M Moreland, Stephen E Russek, Victor M. Bright
Abstract: This work describes a novel microfluidic platform to trap, release, transport, and detect superparamagnetic beads (SPBs) with magnetic spin-valves (SVs). This new technique for simultaneous SPB manipulation and detection was demonstrated on a linear ...

28. Hyperspectral Imaging and Analysis of Single Erythrocytes
Topic: Life Sciences Research
Published: 8/12/2011
Authors: Ji Y. Lee, Matthew Lawrence Clarke, Fuyuki Tokumasu, John F. Lesoine, David W Allen, Robert C. Chang, Maritoni Abatayo Litorja, Jeeseong Hwang
Abstract: We report a hyperspectral imaging and analysis technique to resolve unique physico-chemical characteristics of subcellular substances in single erythrocytes. We constructed a microscope system installed with a spectral light engine capable of contr ...

29. Combinatorial Screening of Hydrogel Scaffolds for 3D Cell Culture
Topic: Life Sciences Research
Published: 5/2/2011
Authors: Kaushik Chatterjee, Marian F Young, Carl George Simon Jr.
Abstract: Optimizing cell-material interactions is critical towards maximizing regeneration in tissue engineering. Combinatorial and high-throughput (CHT) methods can be used to systematically screen tissue scaffolds to identify optimal biomaterial properties ...

30. A General Model for the Dynamics of Cell Volume, Global Stability, and Optimal Control
Topic: Life Sciences Research
Published: 2/11/2011
Author: James D. Benson
Abstract: Cell volume and concentration regulation in the presence of changing extracellular environments has been studied for centuries, and recently a general nondimensional model was introduced that encompassed solute and solvent transmembrane flux for a wi ...
