Rabbit Polyclonal Antibodies Against Hec1 P-Ser165 (P-Ser165 Hec1)

Hec1, a protein that is highly expressed in many cancer cell types, plays an essential role in chromosome segregation. This rabbit polyclonal antibody targets Hec1 pSer165.

Photophysically Innocent Boron Cluster Ligand Scaffolds For Organic Light Emitting Diode Materials

UCLA researchers have developed a novel method to using boron clusters ligands for light emitting diode materials. This is the first report of the ligand 1,1’-bis-o-carborane (bc) bound to Pt(N^N). Both C-Pt symmetrical isomers and C-Pt/B-Pt asymmetric isomers can be synthesized.

Porous Membrane Integration In A Microfluidic Device For Controllable Release And Reaction

UCLA researchers have developed a solid-state, microfluidic device for high precision dispensation of small volumes of fluid.

Controllable Emulsification And Point-Of-Care Assays Driven By Magnetic Induced Movement Of The Fluid

UCLA researchers in the department of Bioengineering have developed a novel microfluidic droplet generation technique, where instead of pumps, only magnetic force is used for controllable emulsification of ferrofluid containing solutions. 

Pseudo Light-Field Display

Creating correct focus cues (blur and accommodation) has become a critical issue in the development of the next generation of 3D displays, particularly head-mounted displays.  Withough correct focus cues, current 3D displays create undue visual discomfort and reduce visual performance.  Current attempts to solve the focus cues problem are limited in their practical use.  For example, volumetric displays are limited because the viewable scene is restricted to the size of the display volume.  Multi-plane displays require very accurate alignment between the display and the viewer’s eyes.  Light field displays often require demanding resolution requirements and computational workload.   Researchers at UC Berkeley have developed a system and method to correct focus cues with a conventional display, a dynamic lens in front of each eye, and a method to measure the current focus or an estimate of the current focus of each eye.  Most of the system components are currently commercially available and the technology solves the speed and resolution problems in current light field displays. 

Supermaneuverable Autonomous Swimmer

The most commonly used Autonomous underwater vehicles (AUVs) have shapes and structures similar to submarines and winged torpedoes, and maneuver using their fins, wings, stabilizers, and through changing the direction of their thrust vector. Existing systems have some disadvantages: (i) drag forces and torques exerted on the thrusters significantly affect the efficiency of reorientation maneuvers, (ii) since thrusters are operational during reorientation maneuvers, a substantial amount of power is consumed to pump the bulk fluid, wasting the precious power storage of the vehicle, and (iii) the translational and attitude dynamics of model submarines and torpedo-like AUVs are highly coupled, and therefore, the vehicle cannot perform in-place attitude maneuvers.  Also, biomimetic swimmers with flapping wings or tails are not energy-efficient.   To address these problems, UC Berkeley resesarchers have developed a new swimmer with high maneuverability. The swimmer has no external fins, wings, or appendages for attitude control or stabilization, and does not generate excess flows while maneuvering. The swimmer has two counter-rotating propellers only for forward propulsion.  The novel AUV experiences the least form drag, and can make rapid in-place turns without turning off its propellers.
