COMPLETED: Polymer Formulations

Our goal is to develop combinatorial and high-throughput measurement approaches for rapid characterization of the structure and phase behavior of multicomponent

Controlling Microfluidic Cell Cultures

NIST has taken advantage of recent technological advances to develop polymer microfluidic cell culture systems that provide a level of control over the cellular

Digital PCR

Digital PCR (dPCR) is a method used to quantify nucleic acids (DNA, RNA, cDNA). At NIST we are using microfluidic and emulsion-based dPCR platforms for

Explosives Decomposition Chemistry

High-energy materials are commonly used as military explosives and as advanced propellants. The detailed chemical reactions responsible for detonation

Fluid Suspensions & Emulsions

We are trying to help take colloidal rheology understanding beyond uniformly charged spheres to particles with more complex interactions, through new

Theoretical Mass Spectrometry

Mass spectrometry is an important technique in analytical chemistry, essential in areas including drug development, criminal and agricultural forensics

Tissue Engineering

Our goal is to develop reliable tools and standards for measuring the properties of cells, biomaterials, scaffolds and tissue-engineered constructs. As

Transient Flow Facility

Today, demonstration vehicles are refueled with hydrogen from dispensers within 3 to 5 minutes using sequential gas releases from a bank of pressurized

Understanding Flow Meters

Accurate flow measurements are needed for test fluids, temperatures, pressures, flows, and installation conditions that differ from those used during NIST's
