This study was designed to develop a versatile method for fabricating complex and heterogeneous three-dimensional (3D) tissue constructs using simultaneous ink-jetting of multiple cell types. Human amniotic fluid-derived stem cells (hAFSCs), canine smooth muscle cells (dSMCs), and bovine aortic endothelial cells (bECs), were separately mixed with ionic(More)
Enshi prefecture of Hubei Province is well known for human selenium (Se) poisoning in the early 1960s in China. Sporadic cases of Se poisoning in livestocks are still being found. In this study, Se levels in water, cropland soils and various crops from high-Se areas of Enshi were measured to investigate the distribution and bioavailability of Se in the(More)
A high degree of association between Selenium (Se) and organic matter has been demonstrated in natural environments, but Se fractions and speciation in organic matter is unclear. In this study, a method for quantifying organic matter associated with Se (OM-Se) was developed to investigate Se fractions in organic matter in Se-rich soils and weathered stone(More)
The most common method used for minimizing the occurrence of diabetes complications is frequent glucose testing to adjust the insulin dose. However, using blood glucose (BG) meters presents a risk of infection. It is of great importance to develop non-invasive BG detection techniques. To realize high-accuracy, low-cost and continuous glucose monitoring, we(More)
Human stem cells from various sources have potential therapeutic applications. The clinical implementation of these therapies introduces the need for methods of noninvasive tracking of cells. The purpose of this study was to evaluate a high resolution magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) technique for in vivo detection and tracking of superparamagnetic micron(More)
A serum prostate-specific antigen (PSA) measurement method was studied using immunochromatography-based colloidal gold-marked test-strips and characteristic spectral absorption method. Some LEDs in the range from 520 to 535 nm irradiated the test-strips sampled by PSA, and then a photodiode in the range from 520 to 540 nm measured the reflex light at the(More)
A two-tier service placement strategy based on the P2P overlay network framework is proposed. Fields are first placed on the top layer overlay nodes, and then the service components of various functions are placed within the field according to some strategy. The optimization models are built for the single field placement problem and fellowship fields(More)
A serum prostate-specific antigen (PSA) measurement method was studied using characteristic spectral imaging method and immunochromatography-based colloidal gold-marked test-strips. An annular light source made of LEDs in the range from 520 to 535 nm irradiated the test-strips sampled by PSA in darkroom, and then the photograph of the test-strip was(More)
