Caenorhabditis elegans Sieve
A novel mechanical approach to sorting Caenorhabditis elegans and other nematode species for age-synchronized, large-scale assays.The Problem: The most common method of C. elegans transfer is to use a fine, sterilized “pick” made of hair or wire to move animals individually or in small groups. Many procedures, such as RNA extraction or ...

MyoCanine
Aging is generally associated with a progressive gain in fat mass and loss of muscle mass. Although weight loss by caloric restriction might be anticipated to be of benefit, traditional caloric restriction-induced weight loss typically promotes an acceleration of muscle atrophy, and further reductions in physical function despite weight loss. Conse...

Novel Synthesis of Sphingosine Analogues as Potential Drug Candidates
UAF researchers have developed an invention relating to the synthesis of stereochemical framework that is fundemental to the structure of sphingosines. The method is unique and is applicable in the production of a wide variety of sphingosine analogues, molecules that have potential in the treatment of cancer. Sphingosines can inhibit the rapid incr...

Cryotube Vial Design
Cryogenic vials are designed for long-term storage of biological material at ultra-low temperatures andare used by museums, research labs, and other facilities to archive samples in perpetuity. Currently, cryovials are offeredin a limited range of volumes and dimensions. As more samples are cryogenically preserved, more space is needed toaccommodat...

Pathogen Detection Method
Dr. Chen developed a technology that can be used to greatly enrich pathogenic sequences in human clinical samples. This method does not require prior knowledge of the pathogen or assumption of the infection, and therefore, provides a fast and sequence-independent approach to identify human pathogens. In combination with Illumina next generation seq...
