Simulation, Fabrication and Characterization of THz Metamaterial Absorbers James P. Grant1, Iain J.H. McCrindle1, David R.S. Cumming1 1School of Engineering, University of Glasgow This protocol outlines the simulation, fabrication and characterization of THz metamaterial absorbers. Such absorbers, when coupled with an appropriate sensor, have applications in THz imaging and spectroscopy.
Organotypic Collagen I Assay: A Malleable Platform to Assess Cell Behaviour in a 3-Dimensional Context Paul Timpson1, Ewan J. Mcghee1, Zahra Erami1, Max Nobis1, Jean A. Quinn2, Mike Edward2, Kurt I. Anderson1 1The Beatson Institute for Cancer Research, University of Glasgow, 2Section of Dermatology, School of Medicine, University of Glasgow A method is described for the preparation of a 3-dimensional matrix consisting of collagen type I and primary human fibroblasts. This organotypic gel serves as a useful substrate to assess invasive cell migration because it mimics basic features of tissue stroma and is amenable to many forms of microscopy.
