A flow-assisted point-of-care testing device based on gravitational field-flow fractionation for analysis on biological fluids

, , , , , , , ,
The “Point-Of-Care Testing” (POCT) approach is based on the development of portable analytical platforms suitable to perform analysis directly in any required place. A POCT device should combine portability, minimum sample pre-treatment, and the possibility [...]

Analysis and characterization of multifunctional oligothiophene-silica hybrid nanomaterials by AF4-MALS-Fl

, , , , , , , , , ,
We present results indicating that Asymmetrical Flow Field-Flow Fractionation (AF4) on-line coupled with Multi-Angle Light Scattering (MALS) and Fluorescence (FD) detection can become the unparallel methodology for morphological and optical characterization of new, structured, fluorescent [...]

A tag-less method for the direct isolation of HUVEC (human umbilical vein endothelial cells) by gravitational field-flow fractionation as a starting point for gene expression analysis

, , , , , , , ,
HUVECs (human umbilical vein endothelial cells) are a model for prediction of endothelial dysfunction in various diseases. HUVECs are enzymatically removed from the umbilical vein by collagenase. This method allows for a good sample yield, [...]

A novel stem cell tag-less sorting method

, , , , , , , , , , , , , , , ,
New methods for stem cells isolation are being developed. Common procedures for stem cell sorting involve flow cytometry which makes use of fluorescent or magnetic tags to isolate and separate cells which are phenotypically different. [...]
