BACKGROUND Quantitative PCR (qPCR) is a workhorse laboratory technique for measuring the concentration of a target DNA sequence with high accuracy over a wide dynamic range. The gold standard method for estimating DNA concentrations via qPCR is quantification cycle () standard curve quantification, which requires the time- and labor-intensive construction(More)
We describe a novel chemotaxis assay based on the microvalve-actuated release of a chemoattractant from a cell-free microchamber into a cell-containing microchamber. The microvalve chemotaxis device (microVCD) was placed on the stage of a conventional inverted microscope to obtain time-lapse micrographs of neutrophils migrating in a radially-symmetric(More)
The isolation and purification of axon guidance molecules has enabled in vitro studies of the effects of axon guidance molecule gradients on numerous neuronal cell types. In a typical experiment, cultured neurons are exposed to a chemotactic gradient and their growth is recorded by manual identification of the axon tip position from two or more micrographs.(More)
