Inexpensive, universal serial bus-powered and fully portable lab-on-a-chip-based capillary electrophoresis instrumentPublication Year: 2009, Page(s):1 - 7
Capillary electrophoresis is a cornerstone of lab-on-a-chip (LOC) implementations for medical diagnostics. However, the infrastructure needed to operate electrophoretic LOC implementations tends to be large and expensive, hindering the development of portable or low-cost systems. A custom-designed and highly integrated microelectronic chip for high-voltage generation switching and interfacing is r... View full abstract»
Biomimetic polymeric nanofibres are of great interest in tissue engineering and wound repair because of their structural similarity to extracellular matrix. In this work, biomimetic chitosan-based nanofibres with various diameters were prepared by ionically cross-linking with tripolyphosphate (TPP) in adipic acid medium and characterised using transmission electron microscopy, X-ray diffraction an...
