UNLABELLED BACKGROUND Extracts from the marine algae Cymopolia barbata have previously shown promising pharmacological activity including antifungal, antitumor, antimicrobial, and antimutagenic properties. Even though extracts have demonstrated such bioactivity, isolated ingredients responsible for such bioactivity remain unspecified. In this study, we(More)
Urinary tract infection (UTI) is a predominant condition in prostate cancer patients. Escherichia coli ORN178 (EC-178) is the uropathogen that causes recurrent infection by binding specifically to adhesins of prostate cancer cells (DU-145 cells). Gold nanoparticles (GNPs) have been used in biodiagnosis of pathogens. In this study, we have investigated the(More)
Electrokinetic manipulation refers to the control of particle and cell motions using an electric field. It is an efficient technique for microfluidic applications with the ease of operation and integration. It, however, suffers from an intrinsic drawback of low throughput due to the linear dependence of the typically very low fluid permittivity. We(More)
