3D Printed Microfluidics for Biological Applications

The term ‘‘Lab-on-a-Chip,’’ is synonymous to describing microfluidic devices with biomedical applications. Even though Microfluidics have been developing rapidly for the past decade, the uptake rate in biological research has been a slow one. This could be due to its tedious process to fabr ... more

Microfluidic device with focusing and spacing control for resistance based sorting of droplets and cells

This paper reports a novel hydrodynamic technique for sorting of droplets and cells based on size and deformability. The device comprises two modules: focusing and spacing control module and sorting module. The focusing and spacing control module enables focusing of objects present in a sam ... more

Patchiness in a microhabitat chip affects evolutionary dynamics of bacterial cooperation

Localized interactions are predicted to favour the evolution of cooperation amongst individuals within a population. One important factor that can localize interactions is habitat patchiness. We hypothesize that habitats with greater patchiness (greater edge-to-area ratio) can facilitate th ... more

Chemical Contrast Observed in Thermal Images of Blood-Stained Fabrics Exposed to Steam

Thermal imaging is not ordinarily a good way to visualize chemical contrast. In recent work, however, we observed strong and reproducible images with chemical contrasts on blood-stained fabrics, especially on more hydrophobic fabrics like acrylic and polyester. more

On-surface photo-dissociation of C–Br bonds: towards room temperature Ullmann coupling

The surface-assisted synthesis of gold-organometallic hybrids on the Au(111) surface both by thermo- and light-initiated dehalogenation of bromo-substituted tetracene is reported. Combined X-ray photoemission (XPS) and scanning tunneling microscopy (STM) data reveal a significant increase o ... more

A BODIPY-based ‘turn-on’ fluorescent probe for hypoxic cell imaging

A boron-dipyrromethene (BODIPY) dye containing a styryl substituent with a hydroxyl and nitro group, 1a, exhibits a ‘turn-on’ fluorescence response for hypoxic cells. The presence of the electron-withdrawing nitro group results in a highly efficient nonradiative decay of the S1 state, and h ... more

Controlled release from protein particles encapsulated by molecular layer deposition

Molecular layer deposition (MLD) was used to coat micron-sized protein particles in a fluidized bed reactor. Our results show that the dissolution rate of particles coated via MLD rapidly decreases with the increase in number of coating cycles, while the uncoated particles dissolve instanta ... more

Identification of key factors affecting the water pollutant concentration in the sluice-controlled river reaches of the Shaying River in China via statistical analysis methods

The construction of sluices creates a strong disturbance in water environmental factors within a river. The change in water pollutant concentrations of sluice-controlled river reaches (SCRRs) is more complex than that of natural river segments. To determine the key factors affecting water p ... more
