Cryopreservation of tissue-engineered human dermal replacement plays an important role in skin tissue engineering and skin banking. With the inspection of electronic scanning microscope and viability evaluation by Trypan Blue staining assay and the tetrazolium salt, MTT (3-[4,5-Dimethylthiazol-2-yl]-2,5-diphenyltetrazolium bromide) assay, this study(More)
The freeze-drying process is complicated with complex heat and mass transfer during sublimation. The sublimation interface of freeze-drying has become more attractive and meaningful recently. In this study, apple slices undergoing sublimation were scanned by a Micro-CT scanner. The cross-sectional images were reconstructed with those scanning images(More)
Keywords: High-power LED Heat pipe Thermal resistance Junction temperature a b s t r a c t The goal of this study is to improve the thermal characteristics of high power LED (light-emitting diode) package using a flat heat pipe (FHP). The heat-release characteristics of high power LED package are analyzed and a novel flat heat pipe (FHP) cooling device for(More)
In order to investigate fracture problems associated with cryopreservation of aorta, experiments were carried out to study the effects of temperature, freezing rate and cryoprotective agent on the fracture mechanics properties of frozen rabbit aorta and a test method for crack criterion of frozen rabbit aorta was developed. Results showed that as(More)
Human embryonic stem (ES) cells have far-reaching applications in the areas of tissue engineering, regenerative medicine, pharmacology and basic scientific research. Although the culture conditions can maintain the human ES cells in an undifferentiated state for a transient period, spontaneous differentiation has also been observed during the routine(More)
A novel thermal biosensor based on enzyme reaction for pesticides detection has been developed. This biosensor is a flow injection analysis system and consists of two channels with enzyme reaction column and identical reference column, which is set for eliminating the unspecific heat. The enzyme reaction takes place in the enzyme reaction column at a(More)
Islets of Langerhans were isolated from the Sprague Dawley rat pancreas digested by injected collagenase, and purified by Ficoll density gradient centrifugation. In order to make smaller and more uniform microencapsulated islets, we designed a special high-voltage electrostatic microcapsule generator. The effects of operational parameters of the generator(More)
The temperature effects on enzyme activity at the conditions with and without inhibition, operation, and storage were investigated for free esterase and immobilized chicken liver esterase with three methods (adsorption, adsorption-microcapsule, and adsorption-crosslinking) used in a calorimetric biosensor. The results indicated that the temperature had(More)
Thermal expansion data are essential for thermal stress analysis in order to predict the likelihood of fracture formation in tissues during cryopreservation as well as cryosurgery. The current study focuses on examining the thermal expansion behavior of rabbit aorta during freezing, especially phase change processes. Thermo mechanical analysis (TMA) was(More)
Successful storage of red blood cells (RBCs) by freeze-drying technique has important implications in blood transfusion and clinical medicine. We presented a method of preservation RBCs by pretreating them with glycerol solution and then freeze-drying. The effects of glycerol pretreatment on recovery and antioxidant enzyme activities of lyophilized RBCs(More)
