    14. Feature of the Week 01/23/2017: In-Situ Biofouling Assessment in Spacer Filled Channels Using Optical Coherence Tomography - Biofilm Thickness Mapping

      Feature of the Week 01/23/2017: In-Situ Biofouling Assessment in Spacer Filled Channels Using Optical Coherence Tomography - Biofilm Thickness Mapping

      Biofouling is a one of the major problem in membrane filtration systems. Biofouling leads to performance losses such as reduction of permeate flux, reducing permeate quality, increase in energy consumption, and decreasing of membrane lifetime. Conventional techniques to investigate biofouling involve taking samples by physically breaking up membrane modules and analyzing biofilm build-up. However, this can disrupt the natural process behind biofouling. Therefore, those methods are not able to provide on-line and real-time information about biofilm development. Our research is focused in studying the biofilm development in membrane filtration systems in-situ online under continuous operation using Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT ...

      Postdoctoral Research Fellowships in In Vivo Microscopy at Massachusetts General Hosptial

      Employer Description Until recently, visualizing the architectural and cellular morphology of human tissue has required histopathological examination. Samples would be excised from the patient, processed, sectioned, stained and viewed under a microscope. In addition to being invasive, time consuming and costly, the static nature of conventional pathology prohibits the study of biological dynamics and function. The Tearney Laboratory at Massachusetts General Hospital has led the way in transforming the current diagnostic paradigm through the invention and translation of new noninvasive, high-resolution optical imaging modalities that enable disease diagnosis from living patients without excising tissues from the body. Led by Guillermo ...
