  1. 1. Clinical applications of acoustophoresis in blood based diagnostics

    Author : Klara Petersson; Avdelningen för Biomedicinsk teknik; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Acoustophoresis; Acoustofluidics; Ultrasound; Microfluidics; Blood; Blood Separation; Blood plasma; Lab-on-a-chip; Point-of-care; Blood diagnostics;

    Abstract : In this thesis, acoustofluidics has been used to process blood samples as a sample preparation step prior to biomarker detection. This is often required as the large amount of blood cells otherwise can interfere with the detection method. Acoustofluidics means moving particles or cells with acoustic forces within microfluidic channels. READ MORE

  2. 2. Lead in blood. ICP-MS studies of lead in plasma, blood and erythrocyte proteins

    Author : Ingvar A Bergdahl; Avdelningen för arbets- och miljömedicin; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; distribution; plasma; blood; erythrocytes; lead-binding prtoeins; delta-aminlevulinic acid dehydratase; inductively coupled plasma mass spectrometry; ALAD; arbetsmiljömedicin; Occupational health; industrial medicine; Lead; toxicity; ICP-MS; Yrkesmedicin;

    Abstract : An inductively coupled plasma mass spectrometry (ICP-MS) method for the determination of lead in blood plasma has been developed. The detection limit was below 0.1 microgram/liter, and the precision 5%. There was no significant difference between levels in plasma and serum. READ MORE

  3. 3. Preoperative deposit of autologous blood. Effects on inflammatory mediators

    Author : Monica Hyllner; Göteborgs universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; allogeneic; autologous; complement; cytokines; blood storage; erythropoiesis; hysterectomy; plasma; prestorage leucocyte filtration; rHuEPO; whole blood.;

    Abstract : Blood contains complex cascade systems and substances that can be activated during the processing of blood components and storage. Allogeneic blood, i.e. blood from someone else, is normally separated into components before storage and transfusion, while autologous blood (the patient s own blood) often is used as whole blood.

  4. 4. Multiplexed absolute quantification of blood plasma proteins using targeted proteomics

    Author : David Kotol; Mathias Uhlén; Edfors Fredrik; Roman Zubarev; KTH; []
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; mass spectrometry; targeted proteomics; stable isotope standards; recombinant protein standards; absolute quantification; blood plasma; multiplex analysis; plasma profiling; Biotechnology; Bioteknologi;

    Abstract : Proteins are the molecular building blocks of all living organisms. They are the functioning actors in metabolism and communication, and they give specific architecture and purpose to all tissues. Their abundance is dynamic and can be interpreted and associated to different physiological states or diseases. READ MORE

  5. 5. Antibody based plasma protein profiling

    Author : Ulrika Qundos; Jochen M. Schwenk; Peter Nilsson; Mathias Uhlén; Ulrike Korf; KTH; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; protein profiling; plasma; antibody; affinity proteomics; biomark- ers; multiplex; assay development;

    Abstract : This thesis is about protein profiling in serum and plasma using antibody suspension bead arrays for the analysis of biobanked samples and in the context of prostate cancer biomarker discovery. The influence of sample preparation methods on antibody based protein profiles were investigated (Papers I-III) and a prostate cancer candidate biomarker identified and verified (Papers III-V).
