A non-ionic copolymer surfactant qualified for use in insect cell culture applications as an antifoaming agent.
Pluronic® F-127 was used to coat a siliconized coverslip to hold an egg extract in a study. Pluronic F-127 was added to phosphate buffered saline (PBS), to lower unspecific cell and protein adhesion to a PDMS-based microfluidic device. A study reports its use as a release vehicle to transport low-dose perivascular lipopolysaccharide (LPS) on mouse vein grafts. PLGA/pluronic F127 may be used to fabricate nerve guidance conduits (NGCs) for regeneration of peripheral nerve. Fabrication of poly (lactide-co-glycolide) (PLGA) — Pluronic F127 glass composites was reported. Pluronic F-127 was used for fluorescent labeling of blood vessels, astrocytes, and neurons.

Spatially and temporally coordinated variations of the cytosolic free calcium concentration ([Ca2+]c) play a crucial role in a variety of tissues. In the developing sensory epithelium of the mammalian cochlea, elevation of extracellular adenosine trisphosphate concentration ([ATP]e) triggers [Ca2+]c oscillations...

Electrospun Nanofibers for Drug Delivery Systems

Local delivery of bioactive molecules using an implantable device can decrease the amount of drug dose required as well as non-target site toxicities compared to oral or systemic drug administration.

A Review of Mesoporous TiO2 Thin Films

In this paper, we discuss recent advances in the preparation of various TiO2 porous structures via hard and soft-templating routes. Specifically, we focus on recent developments in TiO2 mesoporous thin films in a combined sol-gel and evaporation-induced self-assembly (EISA) process.
