    , M.Sc. Thesis Sharif University of Technology Ghahremannezhad, Ali (Author) ; Saidi, Mohammad Said (Supervisor)
    A bioreactor can refer to any device or system constructed on engineering basis and has an active biological medium. This medium includes aerobic and non-aerobic reactions in which organisms and the theire produced substances have the main role. One of the applications of bioreactors is to provide an appropriate medium for animal and plant cell culture and growth. Nowadays many biological processes in high volume scales are carried out in stirred tank bioreactors. In these bioreactors oxygen transfer is usually increased by increasing turbulence which is necessary for mixing nutrients and keeping the homogeneity of the medium. However, there are some limitations for increasing the stirring... 

    Numerical Simulation and Analysis of Electrokinetic Micromixer

    , M.Sc. Thesis Sharif University of Technology Raffiee, Amir Hossein (Author) ; Saidi, Mohammad Said (Supervisor)
    Lab-On-A-Chip is a micro-scale system which utilizes specific tools in order to operate detection tests on samples. One of the most important components of these devices is micromixers which is responsible for appropriate mixing of samples in short period of time. The biggest problem associated to the mixing in micro-scale is the regime that the flow takes during the process. Due to the small dimensions of micromixers the induced flow stream resides in the range of laminar flows and consequently the mixing is conducted solely by diffusion mechanism which is either time-taking or requires long micro-channel that causes the high cost of fabrication. In order to improve the mixing process two...

    Coarse Grain Molecular Dynamics Simulation of Drug Carrier Translocation into Cell Membrane

    , M.Sc. Thesis Sharif University of Technology Damirchi, Behzad (Author) ; Saidi, Mohammad Said (Supervisor) ; Firoozabadi, Bahar (Supervisor)
    With the increasing development of the pharmaceutical industry and producing drugs with specific performance, its transfer into cells is also very important. Cell membranes are effectively impermeable to hydrophilic compounds unless the permeation is facilitated by dedicated transport systems. This means that many hydrophilic compounds, including many promising drug candidates, fail to reach their intracellular target because they cannot spontaneously cross lipid membranes. As a consequence, there is much interest in finding ways to facilitate the transport of molecules across cell membranes. Cell-penetrating peptides (CPPs) in particular have shown much promise as potential delivery agents...
