However, the retrograde of small vehicles is not well contained. At this stage, a large number of traffic police are required to intercept the traffic on the roadside, which is undoubtedly very troublesome, Therefore, we hope to design a one-way travel restriction device.

Current red blood cell (RBC) glycerolization with the ACP 215 device is followed by volume reduction of the glycerolized RBCs before freezing. We investigated a modified method of glycerolization and deglycerolization which eliminates the final centrifugation step that reduces glycerolized RBC supernatant. A total of 37 RBC units collected from healthy volunteers were analyzed. After removal of the supernatant, RBCs were glycerolized using the high glycerol method and stored at –80°C

FLEXIBLE PH SENSOR WITH POLYANILINE LAYER BASED ON IMPEDANCE MEASUREMENT

possible to detect the impedance by means of a simple electronic device. Consequently, the low-cost, disposable, flexible IDT electrode sensor with a polyaniline layer effectively demonstrates the feasibility of pH value detection. Moreover, the sensor can be applied to other applications, such as gas detection, humidity and glucose, etc.

AUTOMATED TELEHEALTH SYSTEM FOR FETAL GROWTH DETECTION AND APPROXIMATION OF ULTRASOUND IMAGES

One of the most profound use of ultrasound imaging is fetal growth monitoring. Conventionally, physicians will perform manual measurements of several parameters of the ultrasound images to draw some conclusion of the fetal condition by manually annotating the fetal images on the ultrasound device interface. However, performing manual annotation of fetal images will require significant amount of time considering the number of patients an obstetrician can have. In this paper, an integrated
