  1. 1. Studies on skin blood flow and evaporative water loss : a bioengineering approach

    Author : Lena Nilsson; Linköpings universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICINE; MEDICIN;

    Abstract : Skin blood flow (SBF), temperature, evaporative water loss (EWL) and skin conductance (SC) measured during stimulus-response experiments reveal valuable information regarding the skin's regulatory capacity. SBF and EWL play powerful roles in keeping the human body within an adequate temperature range. READ MORE

    Abstract :  Biomethane production from renewable residues with anaerobic digestion gains increasing attention as a crucial alternative to petroleum fuels. It has been vigorously developed, but the large amounts of subsidy from the government indicate that the process efficiency needs to be further improved. READ MORE

  4. 4. Microfluidics for High-Pressure Inertial Focusing : Focusing, Separation and Concentration of Micro and Sub-micron Particles

    Abstract : The birth of microsystems set the ground for technologies never imagined before, for it is not only the small size what characterizes the miniaturized systems, but unique phenomena arise in the micro scale. This thesis relates to one such unique phenomenon, inertial focusing, a phenomenon that occurs in microfluidic systems if very special conditions are met and that allows for fine manipulation of particles in fluid samples.

    Abstract : The increasing global burden of end-stage liver disease has increased the need for liver transplantation, the definitive cure. However, there is a huge discrepancy between the number of available organ donors and the number of patients waiting for transplantation, resulting in the deaths of a significant number of patients on the waiting list as only 10% of the global need for transplantation is met.
