A microchannel chip for continuous-flow polymerase chain reaction (PCR) was developed using transparent materials. The microchannel was fabricated on a quartz glass substrate using standard photolithography and wet-etching techniques, and was sealed by another quartz [...]
Protein structure prediction remains one of the main outstanding challenges of theoretical biophysical chemistry. Its goal is to predict the fully three-dimensional tertiary structure of the protein on the basis of its amino acid sequence [...]
We calculate the potential energy of an electrowetting array for different shapes and sizes of interdigital edge structures. To understand the dynamic effects at the beginning of the droplet motion is crucial for the optimization [...]

An easy-to-use and low cost microreactor made of polymethylmethacrylate was mechanically fabricated with a microchannel. The laminar flow behavior was investigated by visualizing the flow of red and green aqueous solutions. Digitized color images from [...]
Flow based assays use continuous forward flow in micro/nano-fluidic systems to deliver and transport biomedical sample to destined spots for biomedical diagnosis. Accurate dose control, less drag force from contact surface, and simpler flow system [...]
The Alzheimer disease is belongs to a group of neurodegenerative diseases characterised by an accumulation of extraneuronal filamentous material consisting of _-sheet proteins of various biochemical properties. Clinically, these diseases manifest as dementia is permanent [...]
In this paper the smart sensor of chemical signal is presented. It reflects the current state of research performed in the System for European Water Monitoring (SEWING) project. The aim of the paper is to [...]
This paper focuses on problems of hardware implementation of neural networks (NN) in the re-programmable structures. New class of these devices, which integrate in one silicon wafer entire microprocessor systems (Systems-on-Chip), facilitates NN construction and [...]
Macromolecular Crystallization in Microfluidics for the International Space Station At NASA’s Marshall Space Flight Center in Huntsville, Alabama, we have begun the development of scientific hardware for macromolecular crystallization on the International Space Station (ISS). [...]
