Pre-concentration methods are essential for detecting low concentrations of influenza virus in biological samples from patients. Here, we describe a new method for draining buffer from solution in the reservoir of a microfluidic device to increase the concentration of virus in the reservoir. Viruses were captured in the reservoir by an ion depletion barrier(More)
Quantitative microfluidic point-of-care testing has been translated into clinical applications to support a prompt decision on patient treatment. A nanointerstice-driven filling technique has been developed to realize the fast and robust filling of microfluidic channels with liquid samples, but it has failed to provide a consistent filling time owing to the(More)
Electrospun and ethanol-dispersed polystyrene-poly(styrene-co-maleic anhydride) (PS-PSMA) nanofibers (NFs) were used as a platform for the selective capture and three-dimensional culture of EpCAM-positive cells in cell culture medium and whole blood. The NFs were treated with streptavidin to facilitate bond formation between the amino groups of streptavidin(More)
High-aspect ratio micro- and nano-structures have been used for the production of a variety of applications. In this paper, we describe a simple and cost-effective approach to fabricate an arrayed microarchitecture with an ultra-high aspect ratio using soft materials. The shapes and sizes of the honeycomb structure can be easily modulated by changing the(More)
Here, a growth-factor-integrated natural extracellular matrix of type I collagen is presented that induces angiogenesis. The developed matrix adapts type I collagen nanofibers integrated with synthetic colloidal particles of recombinant bacteriophages that display vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF). The integration is achieved during or after(More)
In this paper, a method was developed for pre-concentrating large-volume biological samples for subsequent analysis. We previously developed another pre-concentration device, but it unfortunately altered the pH of the sample when an electric field was applied to the sample reservoir. Changes in the pH are not suitable for subsequent antibody-antigen(More)
We presented a new quantitative analysis for cell and extracellular matrix (ECM) interactions, using cell-coated ECM hydrogel microbeads (hydrobeads) made of type I collagen. The hydrobeads can carry cells as three-dimensional spheroidal forms with an ECM inside, facilitating a direct interaction between the cells and ECM. The cells on hydrobeads do not(More)
