A highly pure and efficient method for anthocyanin purification from fruits and vegetables

A mixed-mode method for the isolation of anthocyanin-mixtures from plant materials.

A specific and rapidly reversible system for single molecule capture employing magnesium-dependent DNA quadruplex structures.

Self-assembling, highly stable RNA cages amenable to custom functionalization and cargo delivery

Design for a three-dimensional microfluidic bioreactor array; device allows for culturing of a variety of cell types without contamination.

Polymethylmethacrylate (PMMA) is a useful material for development of assays, biochips, and other biological materials. However, PMMA makes for a difficult substrate because of complexities with respect to adhesion. This technology presents two new methods for enhanced protein binding onto PMMA.

Verbal communication of color is challenging, therefore mathematically-standardized color spaces are used. ColorBySpectra is software that in one click can convert large sets of absorbance data obtained from a simple spectrophotometer into color spaces: Hunter Lab, CIEL*c*h* and CIEL*a*b*. It reduces time for data collection, and sample volume and equipment needs. The software is useable on multiple platforms and would be useful in food science or other industries interested in precise color information.

A newly discovered totally anaerobic (oxygen deficient) methionine salvage process was discovered that leads to the production of large amounts of ethylene. The novel genes and enzymes of this process appear to be widespread and regulated, suggesting that it will be feasible to manipulate bacterial metabolism in select microorganisms.

A screening tool for rapid estimation of dietary carotenoid intake

Highly specific and effective murine cereblon (CRBN) antibody for high quality immunoassays.
