A portable and cost-effective real-time cardiotoxicity biosensor was developed using a CMOS imaging module extracted from a commercially available webcam. The detection system consists of a CMOS imaging module, a white LED and a pinhole. Real-time image processing was conducted by comparing reference and live frame images. To evaluate the engineered system,(More)
Engineering functional muscle tissue requires the formation of densely packed, aligned, and mature myotubes. To enhance the formation of aligned myotubes with improved contractibility, we fabricated aligned electrospun gelatin multi-walled carbon nanotubes (MWNTs) hybrid fibers that were used as scaffolds for the growth of myoblasts (C2C12). The MWNTs(More)

Bottom-gate thin film transistors with amorphous zinc tin oxide channels were grown by atomic layer deposition. The films maintained their amorphous character up to temperatures over 500 C. The highest field effect mobility was 13 cm/V s with on-to-off ratios of drain current 10–10. The lowest subthreshold swing of 0.27 V/decade was observed with thermal(More)
We engineered functional cardiac patches by seeding neonatal rat cardiomyocytes onto carbon nanotube (CNT)-incorporated photo-cross-linkable gelatin methacrylate (GelMA) hydrogels. The resulting cardiac constructs showed excellent mechanical integrity and advanced electrophysiological functions. Specifically, myocardial tissues cultured on 50 μm thick(More)
A mini-microscope was developed for in situ monitoring of cells by modifying off-the-shelf components of a commercial webcam. The mini-microscope consists of a CMOS imaging module, a small plastic lens and a white LED illumination source. The CMOS imaging module was connected to a laptop computer through a USB port for image acquisition and analysis. Due to(More)
A loosely focused light beam is very useful for separating colloidal particles. For micron size colloidal particles suspended in a fluid and irradiated with a laser beam perpendicular to the direction of fluid flow, particles have a retention distance determined by their size and composition, the flow rate of fluid, and characteristics of the laser. An(More)
We describe a microfluidic device for generating nonlinear (exponential and sigmoidal) concentration gradients, coupled with a microwell array for cell storage and analysis. The device has two inputs for coflowing multiple aqueous solutions, a main coflow channel and an asymmetrical grid of fluidic channels that allows the two solutions to combine at(More)
High-throughput preparation of multi-component solutions is an integral process in biology, chemistry and materials science for screening, diagnostics and analysis. Compact microfluidic systems enable such processing with low reagent volumes and rapid testing. Here we present a microfluidic device that incorporates two gradient generators, a tree-like(More)
