High-resolution Respirometry to Measure Mitochondrial Function of Intact Beta Cells in the Presence of Natural Compounds Kyle B. Kener1, Devin J. Munk1, Chad R. Hancock1, Jeffery S. Tessem1 1Nutrition, Dietetics and Food Science Department, Brigham Young University The goal of this protocol is to measure the effect of glucose-mediated changes to mitochondrial respiration in the presence of natural compounds on intact 832/13 beta cells using high-resolution respirometry.
Determining 3D Flow Fields via Multi-camera Light Field Imaging Tadd T. Truscott1, Jesse Belden2, Joseph R. Nielson1, David J. Daily1, Scott L. Thomson1 1Department of Mechanical Engineering, Brigham Young University, 2Naval Undersea Warfare Center, Newport, RI A technique for performing quantitative three-dimensional (3D) imaging for a range of fluid flows is presented. Using concepts from the area of Light Field Imaging, we reconstruct 3D volumes from arrays of images. Our 3D results span a broad range including velocity fields and multi-phase bubble size distributions.
Synthetic, Multi-Layer, Self-Oscillating Vocal Fold Model Fabrication Preston R. Murray1, Scott L. Thomson1 1Department of Mechanical Engineering, Brigham Young University The methodology for fabricating synthetic vocal fold models is described. The models are life-sized and mimic the multi-layer structure of the human vocal folds. Results show the models to self-oscillate at pressures comparable to lung pressure and demonstrate flow-induced vibratory responses that are similar to those of human vocal folds.
