Detection of circulating tumor cells (CTCs) in the early stages of cancer is a great challenge because of their exceedingly small concentration. There are only a few approaches sensitive enough to differentiate tumor cells from the plethora of other cells in a sample like blood. In order to detect CTCs, several antibodies and aptamers have already shown(More)
Microfluidic channels have been implemented to detect cancer cells from blood using electrical measurement of each single cell from the sample. Every cell provided characteristic current profile based on its mechano-physical properties. Cancer cells not only showed higher translocation time and peak amplitude compared to blood cells, their pulse shape was(More)
The electronic and optical properties of MgS x X 1−x (X =Se, Te), and MgSe x Te 1−x (0 ≤ x ≤ 1) ternary alloys are investigated using the full potential linearized augmented plane wave (FP-LAPW) method within the density functional theory (DFT). The direct band gap energies vary in the ranges 2.854–3.864 eV, 2.470–3.864 eV, and 2.470–2.854 eV for MgS x Se(More)
