Biofabrication of cellular structures using weightlessness as a biotechnological tool
Gravity is an important biomechanical signal effecting the morphology and function of organisms. Reduction of gravitational forces, as experienced during spaceflight, cause alterations in the biological systems. Magnetic ...
Application of magnetic levitation induced weightlessness to detect cell lineage
Identification and classification of bone marrow cells is an important step for molecular biology and therapeutic studies related to bone marrow disorders such as osteoporosis or obesity. In this study, we applied magnetic ...
Active mixing strategy with electromechanical platform for lab-on-a-chip applications
(Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, 2019)
The main purpose of this study is to present a new active mixing strategy that can be used for lab-on-A-chip applications to shorten analysis time. An electromechanical platform composed of stepper and DC motors is designed ...
Label-free density-based detection of adipocytes of bone marrow origin using magnetic levitation
(Royal Society of Chemistry, 2019-04)
Adipocyte hypertrophy and hyperplasia are important parameters in describing abnormalities in adipogenesis that are concomitant to diseases such as obesity, diabetes, anorexia nervosa and osteoporosis. Therefore, technical ...
Cytotoxic tolerance of healthy and cancerous bone cells to anti-microbial phenolic compounds depend on culture conditions
Carnosol and carnosic acid are polyphenolic compounds found in rosemary and sage with known anti-oxidant, anti-inflammatory, and anti-microbial properties. Here, we addressed the potential use of carnosol and carnosic acid ...
