• A novel technology for In Vitro and In Utero modification of Endometrial cells

      McIntosh, Susannah Mairi (Auckland University of Technology, 2009)
      Implantation failure is a major contributing factor to both the diagnosis of unexplained infertility and unsuccessful In Vitro Fertilisation (IVF) outcomes. Research efforts aimed at increasing IVF success rates have largely ...
    • Antibiofilm Function-Spacer-Lipid Coatings On Medical Surfaces

      Raghuraman, Pavithra (Auckland University of Technology, 2021)
      The establishment of bacteria on surgical implants as a biofilm is a major problem and will significantly affect the morbidity and potentially the mortality of the patient. There are two basic approaches to prevent this ...
    • Association of ABO, Lewis and Secretor phenotypes and genotypes with Neisseria gonorrhoeae

      Perry, Elizabeth Holly (Auckland University of Technology, 2003)
      Previous studies of association of ABO phenotypes with gonorrhoea have shown contradictory results. Despite the interdependencies, none have examined the combined effect of ABO, Lewis and Secretor phenotypes. Furthermore, ...
    • Development of Novel Carbohydrate Blood Group Related Kodecyte Assays

      Perry, Elizabeth Holly (Auckland University of Technology, 2019)
      The carbohydrate blood group systems are collectively considered important in human blood transfusion and organ transplantation. Characterised by antibodies with an ability to activate complement, these carbohydrate blood ...
    • Enhancing Attachment of Non-adherent Cells on Inert Surfaces

      Velamoor, Sailakshmi (Auckland University of Technology, 2017)
      In recent years, culturing cells on synthetic surfaces has a growing importance in many fields ranging from simple two-dimensional cell culture to biomedical applications such as tissue engineering, regenerative medicine, ...
    • Evaluating the Potential of Kode Technology to Attach Nucleic Acids onto Red Cells and Create Reticulocyte Mimics

      Naicker, Ashley (Auckland University of Technology, 2021)
      Reticulocytes are immature red cells that still have nuclei acid in them. They are an essential clinical indicator as an increase in their number indicates rapid turn-over of red cells. Most advanced automated haematology ...
    • The impact of ABO kodecytes as a serological teaching tool

      Perry, Elizabeth Holly (Auckland University of Technology, 2014)
      Background: Skills in recognising a range of grades of haemagglutination are critical to safe practice in the preparation of blood for human transfusion. With the move from apprenticeship-style training of blood bank ...
    • In Vivo implantation Murine Modeling

      Erikson, Elizabeth Kate Louise (Auckland University of Technology, 2012)
      Ethical and legal restrictions limit human implantation knowledge. Alternative tools, such as retrospective clinical studies, in vitro three dimensional cell culture modelling, and in vivo implantation animal modelling ...
    • Kode Technology Modification of Nanofibres to Capture Particulates

      Poudyal, Ankita (Auckland University of Technology, 2020)
      With the continual rise in the levels of urban and industrial pollution, there is increased contamination of air and water by small particulate matter. Most of the current filtration methods can capture such particles by ...
    • Novel Mechanisms for Controlled Antigen Expression (KODE™ CAE) on Erythrocyte Membranes

      Gilliver, Lissa (Auckland University of Technology, 2005)
      Background: A major function of blood banking laboratories around the world is the ABO typing of blood from donors and recipients for the purposes of transfusion. Incorrect determination of donor and to a lesser degree ...
