Here we describe a novel microarray platform that integrates all functions needed to perform any array-based experiment in a compact instrument on the researcher's laboratory benchtop. Oligonucle otide probes are synthesized in situ via a light- activated process within the channels of a three-dimensional microfluidic reaction carrier. Arrays can be(More)
Aberrant DNA methylation at CpG dinucleotides can result in epigenetic silencing of tumour suppressor genes and represents one of the earliest events in tumourigenesis. To date, however, high-throughput tools that are capable of surveying the methylation status of multiple gene promoters have been restricted to a limited number of cytosines. Here, we(More)

The current physiological in vitro tests of Mg degradation follow the procedure stated according to the ASTM standard. This standard, although useful in predicting the initial degradation behavior of an alloy, has its limitations in interpreting the same for longer periods of immersion in cell culture media. This is an important consequence as the alloy's(More)
Current research has highlighted that magnesium and its alloys as biodegradable material are highly suitable for biomedical applications. The new material fully degrades into nontoxic elements and offers material properties matching those of human bone tissue. As biomedical implants are rather small and complex in shape, the metal injection molding (MIM)(More)
Texture characterization of intermetallic materials implies to solve the problem of overlapped pole figures of one or several phases when they are carried out by X-ray or neutron diffraction. Moreover, if the harmonic method is used to calculate the texture function, a complementary iterative method must be introduced to define the total texture function. A(More)
