26 February 2009 Lab Meeting Agenda

  • Status: compressed air and vacuum. Happening NOW.

Bioanalyzer - 2nd training March 3 9:30am
Pressure sensor - quoted $325 SP70A or $1000+ SP70D, returning old one for them to look

† Announcements

  • MicroTAS abstracts.

† Flu R01

  • Modified Schedule this week.
  • Plaque Assay.

† SEPSIS Project

  • Submitted to Integrative Biology.

  • .

†RNA project

  • Samples Sent?
  • New proposal with Fraunhofer for food.


  • Mark- Control circuit - done, need to be tested.
  • Integration test from here forward.

- Direct measurement with engineered SERS substrate.

  • Test with engineered SERS substrates
  • Flu Concentration and Cleaning. Kit, UCentrifuge, Quote from Beckmann.
    • benchtop or floor models searched, price range 32K+, waiting on quote.

  • Substrates (JZ)

- Try glass fixture.
- magnets hold Teflon substrate in place and make sure they sink
- they crack as soon as left dry
- nanopatterned COP provides access to repeatable morphology
- Engineered COP substrate?

  • Colloid experiment.

- Do Rhodamine.

    • ordered

-Need a size specific positive control. PS beads? charged?

    • 1um unmodified, undiluted PS beads give distinctive spectrum on Ranjith's substrate
    • co-evaporating diluted PS beads didn't give a signal: difficulty in locating concentrated particles

† Valve Array/Valve building.

  • Parts missing. Check with Susan.
  • Writing a new control interface.

† Fraunhofer: LOAC

  • Paper drafting!

† Biointerfaces group

  • Final experiments were done.
  • counting the number of trapped cells
  • adding experimental results in the draft paper.

† CIMIT- Colson Grant

  • IRB still in revision.


  • Developed a new protocal for PCR coating
  • Simulaons of DNA chain model are running (60 beads).


  • Cathie submitted One pager Whitepaper. Waiting for response.


  • Large volume filling and valve tested.
  • Design issue - whole integration or assemble parts (SPE & HDA chamber)

† Senior project

  • Megan
  • Cutter plotter for fast prototype.
  • Need to get back in cleanroom. Hussam? Get 3" wafers from MCK.

† F31: Cochlea

  • Cell/matrix paper blocking controls. Likely final questions... when is Decorin up/down regulated--- is there an association between fibronectin and actin cytoskeletons during regeneration? Obtained feedback on culture paper.

† Silica Optimization (Lambda):

  • Overview to look at the data collectively [1]
  • Next E. coli.
  • try another color DNA dye.
  • UPDATE The invitrogen Nucleic Acid Stains Dimer Sampler Kit was ordered on Tuesday
