In this paper we report a centrifugal microfluidic "lab-on-a-disc" system for at-line monitoring of human immunoglobulin G (hIgG) in a typical bioprocess environment. The novelty of this device is the combination of a heterogeneous sandwich immunoassay on a serial siphon-enabled microfluidic disc with automated sequential reagent delivery and surface-confined supercritical angle fluorescence (SAF)-based detection. The device, which is compact, easy-to-use and inexpensive, enables rapid detection of hIgG from a bioprocess sample. This was achieved with, an injection moulded SAF lens that was functionalized with aminopropyltriethoxysilane (APTES) using plasma enhanced chemical vapour deposition (PECVD) for the immobilization of protein A, and a hybrid integration with a microfluidic disc substrate. Advanced flow control, including the time-sequenced release of on-board liquid reagents, was implemented by serial siphoning with ancillary capillary stops. The concentration of surfactant in each assay reagent was optimized to ensure proper functioning of the siphon-based flow control. The entire automated microfluidic assay process is completed in less than 30 min. The developed prototype system was used to accurately measure industrial bioprocess samples that contained 10 mg mL(-1) of hIgG.

Triple-layered nanostructured WO₃ photoanodes with enhanced photocurrent generation and superior stability for photoelectrochemical solar energy conversion.

Nanoscale 2014 Nov;6(22):13457-62

School of Materials Science Engineering, Nanyang Technological University, Singapore 639798, Singapore.

Unique nanorods/nanoparticles/nanoflakes (NRs/NPs/NFs) WO3 triple-layers are grown on a metallic W foil by a simple one-step anodization method. The triple-layered structure is formed through a self-organization process, the film thickness (up to 3 μm) being controlled by the anodization time. A first layer made of an array of WO3 densely-packed vertically-aligned NRs (1. Read More

Pakistan Council of Scientific and Industrial Research (PCSIR) Laboratories Complex, 25120 Peshawar, Pakistan. Electronic address:

In this study, a novel approach for in vitro regeneration of Piper nigrum L. has been applied in order to increase healthy biomass, phytochemicals and piperine production via reverse photoperiod (16hD/8hL). Leaf portions of the seed-derived plants were placed on an MS-medium fortified with different PGRs. Read More

Coronal malposition effects in total knee arthroplasty: a finite element analysis.

Eur J Orthop Surg Traumatol 2013 Aug 25;23(6):685-90. Epub 2012 Jul 25.

Department of Orthopaedics and Traumatology, Elias Universitary Hospital, 17 Marasti Boulevard, 011461 Bucharest, Romania.

Prosthetic component malposition is not infrequent, because of technical flaws, especially without a computed navigation system. We assumed that an inclined interline of a prosthetic knee with components parallel in the coronal plane provides a better load distribution and lower contact pressure towards a varus malalignment. For that we studied, using finite element analysis, load intensity and distribution for three situations: ideal alignment of prosthetic components, tibial varus malposition of 3° and 8° leading to tibio-femoral varus malalignment (i.
