The development of microfluidic devices has been spurred by the desire to produce low-cost point-of-care diagnostics and environmental monitoring devices. By combining the adaptive behavior of microfluidic biofuel cells (micro-BFCs) self-regulating the power release with aptamer IMP logic, we constructed a novel IMP-Reset gate-based reusable and self-powered on-chip aptasensor, which can be used to logically determine the presence of one specific target in the absence of another target in complex physiological samples (such as human serum) in a single test.

A novel, biofilm-based AND logic gate was constructed in Shewanella oneidensis through a near-infrared (NIR) light responsive c-di-GMP module. The logic gate was demonstrated in microbial fuel cells w...
A target-switched DNA nanotweezer is designed for AND logic gate operation and enzyme-free detection of microRNAs (miRNAs) by catalytic hairpin assembly (CHA) and proximity-dependent DNAzyme formation...
This paper investigates the performance of an all-optical logic gate scheme based on a single in-phase and quadrature (I/Q) modulator with direct detection. The proposed scheme of an all-optical logic...
Trapped ions are a promising tool for building a large-scale quantum computer. However, the number of required radiation fields for the realization of quantum gates in any proposed ion-based architect...
Wireless sensor networks will be responsible for the majority of the fast growth in intelligent systems in the next decade. However, most of the wireless smart sensor nodes require an external power s...
Reusable flexible ureteroscopes are widely used to treat various upper urinary tract diseases including urinary stones. However, they require a long turnover time between procedures becaus...
Closed loop technology has been shown to reduce both hypoglycemia and hyperglycemia, as well as reduce glycemic variability. Several groups around the world investigate efforts in develop...
Prospective, randomized, controlled, 30 days trial comparing MD-Logic pump algorithm to the standard of care of patients with type 1 diabetes. The objective of this feasibility study is t...
The goal of this Phase I study is to conduct a proof-of-concept trial of a contingency management (CM) targeting adherence to oral HIV antiretroviral pre-exposure prophylaxis (PrEP) admini...
New single use laryngoscope metal blades are available for intubation. This type of blade is safer than the reusable ones concerning the interhuman cross infection risk. No clinical studie...
Approximate, quantitative reasoning that is concerned with the linguistic ambiguity which exists in natural or synthetic language. At its core are variables such as good, bad, and young as well as modifiers such as more, less, and very. These ordinary terms represent fuzzy sets in a particular problem. Fuzzy logic plays a key role in many medical expert systems.
Electrically powered devices that are intended to assist in the maintenance of the thermal balance of infants, principally by controlling the air temperature and humidity in an enclosure. (from UMDNS, 1999)
The science that investigates the principles governing correct or reliable inference and deals with the canons and criteria of validity in thought and demonstration. This system of reasoning is applicable to any branch of knowledge or study. (Random House Unabridged Dictionary, 2d ed & Sippl, Computer Dictionary, 4th ed)
Techniques where DNA is delivered directly into organelles at high speed using projectiles coated with nucleic acid, shot from a helium-powered gun (gene gun). One of these techniques involves immunization by DNA VACCINES, which delivers DNA-coated gold beads to the epidermis.
Cell surface proteins that bind glutamate and directly gate ion channels. Kainic acid receptors were originally discriminated from other glutamate receptors by their affinity for the agonist kainic acid. Activation of kainic acid receptors is generally excitatory to cells. Subtypes have been cloned, and for some the traditional distinction from AMPA receptors may not apply.
