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 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...
Controlled logic gates, where the logic operations on the Data inputs are performed in the way determined by the Control signal, were designed in a chemical fashion. Specifically, the systems where th...
Various bio-logic gates have been studied intensively to overcome the rigidity of single-function silicon-based logic devices arising from combinations of various gates. Here, a simple control tool us...
A chiral logic circuit is proposed based on the multiple chiroptical responsiveness of a supramolecular gel material. The gel is fabricated by mixing a chiral gelator and a spiropyran derivative. Chir...
The interaction of iridium(iii) with a new lissamine rhodamine B sulfonyl derivative, bearing alanine as a building block, () with an orange emission in water results in a green highly emissive Ir@ co...
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...
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 purpose of this study is to compare the two psychophysical perimetric techniques regarding progression of the visual field.
The aim of this study is to compare the subjective performance of the comfilcon A contact lens against lotrafilcon B contact lens after 4 weeks of reusable lens wear.
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.
