† 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.


† COBRA

  • 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.


  • Substrates (JZ)

- Try glass fixture.
-
-

  • Colloid experiment.

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



† 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.


† PCR

  • surface coating of zeonex, looking for an effective way to verify the PEG layer
  • tried contact angle, device is still broken
  • SEM showed no pattern on the plain zeonex without plasma treatment
  • XPS?
  • detect roughness with zygo
  • Simulaons of DNA chain model are running (60 beads).


† RCA

  • Cathie submitted One pager Whitepaper. Waiting for response.


† HDA

  • 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

  • Nathan out this week.


† 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
