Traditional solid-phase microextraction fibers have been limited in their ease of use during in-vivo samplings due to the requirement for a sheathing needle to pre-puncture sample matrices. To address this limitation, a new SPME device is herein proposed which incorporates a coated region which is recessed into a solid support. As the coating surface is flush with, or lies below that of the solid support, the SPME coating does not directly experience the forces associated with the puncture of a sample matrix. The implementation of a recessed extractive coating has been verified as mechanically robust after being incorporated into a projectile which was fired from an air gun into whole fish resulting in no mechanical damage to the coating. In addition, the act of puncturing pre-slit septa in order to access a sample solution was verified to not affect extraction of analyte in a targeted study of pharmaceuticals in water at 15ppb. Next, the recessed SPME device was used for an in-vivo application where raw whole salmon steaks were directly sampled by pushing the recessed SPME device through the protective outer skin in order to sample the underlying muscle tissue for poly-unsaturated fatty acids. Method responses for these compounds were 3-4 times greater than commercially available mixed mode SPME fibers when a hydrophilic-lipophilic balanced coating was used. Certainly, the implementation of the presented device which requires no sheathing needle while being able to directly puncture tissue will provide minimally invasive in-vivo sampling opportunities for a wide range of applications.

Deposition of a Sorbent into a Recession on a Solid Support To Provide a New, Mechanically Robust Solid-Phase Microextraction Device

To date, solid-phase microextraction (SPME) fibers used for in vivo bioanalysis can be too fragile and flexible, which limits suitability for direct tissue sampling. As a result, these devices often require a sheathing needle to prepuncture robust sample matrixes and protect the extraction phase from mechanical damage. To address this limitation, a new SPME device is herein presented which incorporates an extraction phase recessed into the body of a solid needle. This device requires no additional support o...
Separation of chromate and borate anions by polymer enhanced ultrafiltration from aqueous solutions employing specifically tailored polymers
Oktar Doğanay, Ceren; Özbelge, H. Önder; Department of Chemical Engineering (2007)
In this study two polychelatogens for borate and a polyelectrolyte for chromate retention (R) were designed for investigating the effect of pH and loading (g metal /g polymer) on the separation performances of the synthesized polymers using continuous polymer enhanced ultrafiltration. Increase in pH increased the retention of borate for all of the synthesized polymers. Decrease in the loading resulted in an enhancement in boron retention with PNSM and PNSL. When COP was utilized, retentions remained almost ...
Purification and modification of bentonite and its use in polypropylene and linear low density polyethylene matrix nanocomposites
Seyidoğlu, Tijen; Yılmazer, Ülkü; Department of Chemical Engineering (2010)
The potential use of Reşadiye/Tokat bentonite as a reinforcement in polypropylene (PP) and linear low density polyethylene (LLDPE) polymer matrix nanocomposites filler was investigated. At first, organoclays (OC) were prepared by cation exchange reaction (CER) between the raw bentonite (RB) and three quaternary ammonium salts with long alkyl tails (QA): hexadecyl trimethyl ammonium bromide [HMA] [Br], tetrabutyl ammonium tetrafluoroborate [TBA] [BF4], tetrakisdecyl ammonium bromide [TKA] [Br] and one quater...
Preparation and characterization of chitosan-gelatin/hydroxyapatite scaffolds for hard tissue engineering approaches
Işıklı, Cansel; Hasırcı, Nesrin; Department of Biomedical Engineering (2010)
Hard tissue engineering holds the promise of restoring the function of failed hard tissues and involves growing specific cells on extracellular matrix (ECM) to develop „„tissue-like” structures or organoids. Chitosan is a linear amino polysaccharide that can provide a convenient physical and biological environment in tissue regeneration attempt. To improve chitosan‟s mechanical and biological properties, it was blended with another polymer gelatin. 1-ethyl-3-(3-dimethylaminopropyl)-carbodiimide (EDC) and N-...

Aşık, Emin Erkan; Bor, Şakir; Department of Metallurgical and Materials Engineering (2012)
Porous Ti-6Al-4V alloys are widely used in the biomedical applications for hard tissue implantation due to its biocompatibility and elastic modulus being close to that of bone. In this study, porous Ti-6Al-4V alloys were produced with a powder metallurgical process, space holder technique, where magnesium powders were utilized in order to generate porosities in the range of 50 to 70 vol. %. In the productions of Ti-6Al-4V foams, first, the spherical Ti-6Al-4V powders with an average size of 55 μm were mixed...
