A direct injection method for blood cells into microchannels from pure blood droplets with switchable in-situ distillation of erythrocytes

Ciftlik, Ata Tuna
Külah, Haluk
This paper represents a direct injection method for leukocytes into microfluidic channels using negative dielectrophoresis. The blood sample is a heparinated pure blood droplet and injection is realized on-chip without any external microfluidic connections to the microchip. During injection erythrocytes are immobilized in-situ at injection reservoir electrodes. The method is easily applicable to most BioMEMS applications requiring direct injection of cells from pure blood and to eliminate pressure driven control.

A frequency domain nonparametric identification method for nonlinear structures: Describing surface method
Karaagacli, Taylan; Özgüven, Hasan Nevzat (Elsevier BV, 2020-10-01)
In this paper a new method called 'Describing Surface Method' (DSM) is developed for nonparametric identification of a localized nonlinearity in structural dynamics. The method makes use of the Nonlinearity Matrix concept developed in the past by using classical describing function theory, which assumes that nonlinearity depends mainly on the response amplitude and frequency dependence is negligible for almost all of the standard nonlinear elements. However, this may not always be the case for complex nonli...
A Novel Amperometric Glutamate Biosensor Based on Glutamate Oxidase Adsorbed on Silicalite
Soldatkina, O. V.; Soldatkin, O. O.; Kasap, B. Ozansoy; Kucherenko, D. Yu.; Kucherenko, I. S.; Akata Kurç, Burcu; Dzyadevych, S. V. (2017-04-07)
In this work, we developed a new amperometric biosensor for glutamate detection using a typical method of glutamate oxidase (GlOx) immobilization via adsorption on silicalite particles. The disc platinum electrode (d = 0.4 mm) was used as the amperometric sensor. The procedure of biosensor preparation was optimized. The main parameters of modifying amperometric transducers with a silicalite layer were determined along with the procedure of GlOx adsorption on this layer. The biosensors based on GlOx adsorbed...
In-flight calibration of pico satellite attitude sensors via unscented kalman filter
Söken, Halil Ersin (Pleiades Publishing Ltd, 2011-07-01)
In this paper an Unscented Kalman filter based procedure is proposed for the bias estimation of attitude sensors of a pico satellite. Three axis magnetometers and the rate gyros are used as attitude sensors. At the initial phase, biases of three orthogonally located magnetometers are estimated as well as the attitude and attitude rates of the satellite. During initial period after the orbit injection, gyro measurements are accepted as bias free, since the precise gyros are working accurately and the accumul...
A Web Search Enhanced Feature Extraction Method for Aspect-Based Sentiment Analysis for Turkish Informal Texts
Kama, Batuhan; ÖZTÜRK, MURAT; Karagöz, Pınar; Toroslu, İsmail Hakkı; Ozay, Ozcan (2016-09-08)
In this article, a new unsupervised feature extraction method for aspect-based sentiment analysis is proposed. This method improves the performance of frequency based feature extraction by using an online search engine. Although frequency based feature extraction methods produce good precision and recall values on formal texts, they are not very successful on informal texts. Our proposed algorithm takes the features of items suggested by frequency based feature extraction methods, then, eliminates the featu...
A low-order nonlinear amplifier model with distributed delay terms
YÜZER, AHMET HAYRETTİN; Demir, Şimşek (The Scientific and Technological Research Council of Turkey, 2014-01-01)
In this paper, a novel behavioral modeling technique for the characterization of memory effects of amplifiers is proposed. This characterization utilizes asymmetric intermodulation distortion (IMD)components, which are the result of a 2-tone excitation of a nonlinear amplifier. These asymmetric IMD components are represented basically by a power series, where each term in the series has its own time delay term. These time delay terms successfully justify the presence of asymmetry in the intermodulation comp...
