In this work, we first propose a model for the filling of a capillary tube driven by a pressure pump. It is shown that the filling time depends not only on the pump pressure but [...]
Nanoporous membranes have been recognized as promising candidates for drug delivery applications due to their small pore size and high surface-to-volume ratio1. The ultimate goal of smart drug delivery systems is to release a specific [...]
Cells maintain their structure and reproduce through numerous self-organizing processes. The common approach to understand how cellular organization is maintained is to perturb this organization and then observe a response from the cell. Essentially all [...]
Interest in the manipulation and self-assembly of magnetic nanoparticles has grown in recent years due to advances in particle synthesis and functionalization, which have led to a proliferation of applications that include the biomolecular transport, [...]
After the complete evaporation of a sessile nanofluid drop, different deposition patterns can be formed on a substrate. The study of deposited patterns left after the drying of a drop containing suspensions has a significant [...]
Polymer particles are largely used for different applications such as chromatography columns, calibration standards, drug delivery or cell encapsulation1. For all these applications, high size monodispersity and production frequency are required. Moreover, the polymers are [...]
With many extraordinary properties, especially the extremely high thermal conductivity, the graphene has potential applications in energy, electronic, medicine and so on. The addition of graphene nanoparticle to prepare water-based or ethylene-glycol-based nanofluid can significantly [...]
Natural convection is simulated in a truncated cone filled with nanofluid. Inclined walls wall have constant temperature where the heat source is located on the bottom wall of the conical container which is thermally insulated. [...]
Liquid sodium is used for a coolant of fast reactor (FR), because it has superior properties. For example, there are high heat conductivity, high melting temperature and excellent compatibility with structural materials. However high reactivity [...]
Liquid sodium is used for a coolant of fast reactor, because of its superior thermal properties and high melting temperature etc. However liquid sodium has high chemical reactivity with oxygen or water. This is the [...]
Introduction: The use of whole blood is a preferred solution for portable diagnostic and monitoring systems. We analyze here two particularities of microsystems for blood analysis: the blood non-Newtonian behavior, and the capillary flow in [...]
University researchers as well as large pharmaceutical companies need improved technologies for discovering new drugs. Current drug-discovery approaches are highly inefficient, as

We have developed the fungal artificial chromosome [FAC, or autonomously replicating E. coli- fungal shuttle bacterial artificial chromosome (BAC)] vector and system. The FAC technology enables unbiased capturing of 263 full-length large secondary metabolite (SM) [...]
Droplet-based microfluidics is the key technology for the miniaturization and automation of assays in microcompartments. It relies on the use of emulsion droplets as microreactors each encapsulating a biological system of interest (genes, cells, drugs,...) [...]
