Using Sniffing Behavior to Differentiate True Negative from False Negative Responses in Trained Scent-Detection Dogs

False negatives are recorded in every chemical detection system, but when animals are used as a scent detector, some false negatives can arise as a result of a failure in the link between detection and the trained alert response, or a failure of the handler to identify the positive alert. A ... more

Evidence that Humans Can Taste Glucose Polymers

The sense of taste is essential for identifying potential nutrients and poisons. Accordingly, specialized taste receptor cells are activated by food-derived chemicals. Because of its importance in the human diet, oral detection of starch, or its degradation products, would presumably be hig ... more

Evaluation of the Role of G Protein-Coupled Receptor Kinase 3 in Desensitization of Mouse Odorant Receptors in a Mammalian Cell Line and in Olfactory Sensory Neurons

Thousands of odors are sensed and discriminated by G protein-coupled odorant receptors (ORs) expressed in olfactory sensory neurons (OSNs). G protein-coupled receptor kinases (GRKs) may have a role in desensitization of ORs. However, whether ORs are susceptible to agonist-dependent desensit ... more

One-Step Polymer Screen-Printing for Microfluidic Paper-Based Analytical Device ([small mu ]PAD) Fabrication

We report the simple, low-cost, one-step fabrication method for microfluidic paper-based analytical devices (μPAD) using only polystyrene and a patterned screen. The polystyrene solution applied through the screen penetrates through the paper forming a three dimensional hydrophobic barrier, ... more

Use of vacuum bagging for fabricating thermoplastic microfluidic devices

In this work we present a novel thermal bonding method for thermoplastic microfluidic devices. This simple method employs a modified vacuum bagging technique, a concept borrowed from the aerospace industry, to produce conventional thick substrate microfluidic devices, as well as multi-layer ... more

Cooperative adsorption behavior of phosphopeptides on TiO2 leads to biased enrichment, detection and quantification

The adsorption behavior of phosphopeptides onto TiO2 surfaces was studied using the quartz crystal microbalance with dissipation monitoring (QCM-D) as the main experimental technique. The main focus is the characterization of the emergence of positive cooperativity under conditions where th ... more

An integrated microspectrometer for localised multiplexing measurements

We describe the development of an integrated, lensed Arrayed Waveguide Grating (AWG) microspectrometer for localized multiplexing fluorescence measurements. The device, which has a footprint of only 1mm wide and 1cm long, is capable of spectroscopic measurements on chip. Multiple fluorescen ... more

Trace detection of nitro aromatic explosives by highly fluorescent g-C3N4 nanosheets

Highly fluorescent g-C3N4 nanosheets were facilely fabricated by exfoliating the bulk g-C3N4 under ultrasonic irradiation for 1h. The atomic force microscopy (AFM) image showed that the resultant g-C3N4 nanosheets were [[similar]] 6-14 nm thick, and the suspension could stably exist in air ... more

Metformin and respiratory chain complex I: the last piece of the puzzle?

Metformin is the most widely prescribed drug used to treat patients affected by Type 2 diabetes. Metformin has also been shown to prevent some forms of cell death; however, evidence suggests that it may have anti-neoplastic properties. All of these effects have been attributed to complex I ... more
