A method for modifying a target for the MALDI-MS analysis is proposed, allowing selective isolation of analytes from biological samples directly on the target surface, as an alternative to classical methods. To modify the target, a suspension of the metal-affinity sorbent based on iron (III) oxide in a 50% aqueous methanol solution was electrosprayed in drip-free mode with dynamic dividing the fluid flow at atmospheric pressure under normal conditions. The MALDI target acted as a counter electrode. A sorbent layer was deposited on the MALDI target in the form of a spot, the particles of which are subsequently resistant to solvents. A metal-affinity enrichment of a phosphorylated peptide with the amino acid sequence SSNGHV(pY)EKLSSI from a sample of human tryptic hydrolyzate was performed on a modified MALDI target. MALDI-mass spectrum was recorded from the s orbent spot. This technique was created as an alternative to the laborious sample preparation of bioassays and allows to limit the minimum volume of the sample and solvents.

The impact of electric field on cells suspended in aqueous media is widely used in studying the cell periphery of membrane structures, as well as for inactivation of cell components of aqueous media. Studies on electroporation of cell membranes are highly actual. The article presents the results of measurements, showing that direct potentiometry using lipophilic indicator ions (tetraphenylphosphonium) can be used as a sensitive tool to study the energy state of cells. It is shown that the effect of microsecond electrical pulses of high intensity on aerobic cells B.subtilis changes potential profile of the cell periphery, i.e. primarily transmembrane and surface potentials of cells. From the physical point of view, the impact analysis is based on the mechanism of cell polarization as an induced drift of free ion charge, which corresponds to extremely large values – dielectric permittivity and absorbed energy. The values of the field intensity and exposure time ensuring inactivation of cells were determined.

This article presents the results of using the experimental version of the quantitative analysis software ANK_Cycles for the nucleic acid analyzers ANK-32, ANC-48 and ANK-96. Software was developed on the basis of a new method for automatic detection of the threshold cycle Ct. This method is based on approximation of the dependence of the Real Time Polymerase Chain Reaction (RT-PCR) signal by a polynomial of the 3rd degree. The experimental check of calibration error in quantitative PCR-analysis is carried out, and the results were compared with similar results obtained by the use of the known measurement technology (ANK_Shell software), which involves performing a number of manual operations. Measurements and comparisons were made in the fluorescence channels ROX and R6G with the use of samples of natural soybeans and genetically modified ones from the collection of reagents "Soybean GTS 40-3-2 quantity" produced by JSC "SINTOL" (Moscow).

Concentration of alpha-2-macroglobulin (α2-MG) in serum may vary considerably in a number of diseases, and thus quantification of this protein is used in diagnostics. Routine immunological or enzymatic methods for determination of α2-MG concentration in serum are rather complicated. The methods require specific antibodies or the measurements of specific substrates hydrolysis rates. These tests do not distinguish the α2-MG free form from its bound form. We propose a new mass-spectrometric approach to identify and quantify some blood serum biomarkers. The method is based on structural-functional characteristic properties of α2-MG interaction with trypsin, characterized by the cleavage of VGFYESDVMGR peptide. Technique of isotope exchange (18O) was developed for the preparation of internal standard, including direct isotope exchange in blood serum. The quantitative potential of the proposed technique turns mass-spectrometry (MALDI) into a suitable and efficient tool for diagnostics of inflammatory processes. The potential of the proposed approach proposed was demonstrated on the examples of highly sensitivity determination of human α2-MG active form concentration in blood serum of patients with lung diseases. The high potential of the proposed method allows it to be propagated on proteins, the last form complexes with trypsin, but unlike human α2-MG do not cleave free peptides. These include alpha-1-antitrypsin (α1-AT), mouse α2-MG and a number of other serum proteins. Application of the method is shown in testing the "Triazid" antiviral drug in mice model.

A portable mass spectrometer with a membrane method of sample input developed earlier showed stable reproducibility and speed of analysis. To reduce the analysis time, the impact on the blood flow in the work and for ease of use an upgraded membrane interface has been developed. The reduction of the analysis time was achieved by the use of a new membrane interface design, thinner membrane and modified PTFE tube. A mass spectrometer with a membrane interface was calibrated. The results of the development and testing of a non-invasive mass spectrometric method for measuring the transcutaneous CO2 release of healthy people at 3 points of the body are presented. The concentration of CO2 released through the skin was measured during moderate and severe physical exertion. The reproducibility of the results of the method application is shown.

This paper proposes a method of measuring the local concentration N and the local temperature T of the magnetic nanoparticles inside a living organism by means of magnetic resonance imaging, operating with two inductions of magnetic field B1 ˃ 3kT and B2 < kT: N = M1/P, T = PB/ (kln (M1/M2)) (k – Boltzmann constant, P – the magnetic moment of the nanoparticles, M2, M1 – the magnetizations measured in the inductions B2 and B1). The method is aimed to control the movement of nanoparticles through the body's vessels and their delivery to the target tissue, as well as to control the local temperature of the nanoparticles near the target tissue in order to ensure their heating to the optimum temperature. The use of a magnetic resonance tomograph makes it possible, using its gradient coils, to create a inhomogeneous magnetic field that transports nanoparticles to target tissues throughout body vessels.

Keywords: local concentration of nanoparticles, local temperature of nanoparticles, X-ray tomograph, magnetic resonance tomograph

The electromagnet for a polarized neutron reflectometer (RPN) sample node is developed and manufactured for installation on the N3 neutron guide of the IR-8 reactor in the NRC "Kurchatov Institute". The results of the calculation and the experimental data of measurements of the magnetic parameters of the electromagnet created for the node of the polarized neutron reflectometer sample are presented. A special feature of this electromagnet is the increased requirements for the magnitude (200 mT) and the magnetic induction homogeneity (the maximum deviation of the direction of the induction vector from the vertical is no more than 2%), as well as compactness. The estimated characteristics of the magnet are confirmed by the results of experimental measurements: the calculated values of magnetic field induction and its homogeneity almost coincide with the experimental data.

A multi-path cuvette for measuring Raman spectra of liquids has been proposed, developed and introduced into the practice of spectroscopic studies. It allows to increase the optical path of the laser beam in a cuvette filled with salt melt and thus increase the performance factor of using the available power of the laser beam. It is established that the use of the proposed multi-pass cuvette allows to increase the signal-to-noise ratio more than twice. The maximum signal-to-noise ratio is maintained during the studies of salt system melts at high temperatures, when the cuvette with the test sample is placed in a heating furnace. A heating cell for measuring Raman spectra allows to measure the vibrational spectra of condensed systems in the range of 290—1000 K. It is shown that the advantage of the proposed multi-pass cell is simplicity and accessibility of fabrication.

Keywords: Raman scattering, vibrational spectroscopy, multi-pass cuvette, spectra of liquids

The use of multifunctional input/output devices in an experimental sample of a capillary differential titration nanocalorimeter ensured its efficiency by reducing the time spent to find the optimal nanocalorimeter design and to develop documentation on the most technologically complicated and laborious node – the calorimetric unit of the nanocalorimeter. Nanocalorimeter exceeds the worldwide level, providing work with short-lived objects. Its possible to enter stored on ice additives into calorimetric chambers within 10—20 seconds. Nanocalorimeter is promising for use in studies that increase the productivity and expand the area of plants' cultivation by searching for mechanisms and compounds that reduce the adverse effects of extreme environmental factors.

Earlier, the author proposed a method for constructing a system for reliable operation of a lithium-ion rechargeable battery to power a spacecraft. The method provides continuous monitoring of the voltage of each individual battery element both during both the discharge and the charge process. Here is continued the description of its circuit implementation, the important features of which have not been considered previously. It was established that the rating of the shunt resistor from the gate of the first switching transistor of the measuring cascade to ground is of fundamental importance from the point of view of suppressing the appearance of the effect of measuring switches auto-feeding in the measuring and protective circuits of the local power supply and, therefore, from the point of view of elimination of system disturbances in storage mode.

Keywords: element-by-element control, lithium-ion accumulator battery, spacecraft, self-feeding keys

In this paper, the modeling of intermediate forms in the transformation of red blood cells using the example of three-dimensional figures for the subsequent study of changes in optoacoustic signals was carried out. The spatial shapes of erythrocytes are modeled using the Chebyshev polynomial. A model for changing the shape of erythrocytes has been developed for modeling an acoustic signal in order to determine the shape of erythrocytes using an optoacoustic effect. Erythrocytes are known to carry oxygen and carbon dioxide (CO2). Oxygen is transferred from the lungs to the tissue, where it is exchanged for CO2. A healthy red cell is biconcave, the cell is flexible and takes the form of a bell when it passes through very small blood vessels. The erythrocyte is covered with a membrane consisting of lipids and proteins, without nucleus and contains hemoglobin – a red, iron-rich protein that binds oxygen. Before isolation from the bone marrow into the peripheral blood, the ery
throcytes lose their nuclei, which gives the advantages of reduced weight and transformation into a biconcave disc with increased deformability compared to the more rigid spheroidal.

Relevance of research. The relevance of the study is due to the fact that neutron activation analysis (NAA) is one of the convenient ways to determine the composition of samples of natural and man-made origin. Among such objects are unique samples of rocks, minerals, condensates, dust, "hot" particles, etc. In this case, the effectiveness of the analysis depends on the applied methods and techniques. NAA is highly sensitive (up to 10-14 g), multi-element, non-destructive, less dependent on the mass and composition of the sample, on the forms of finding the elements.
The main aim: the main purpose of the study was to obtain an HPG model of the detector using Monte Carlo simulation of the interaction of gamma-rays with the detector crystal.
Research objects: the detector response was obtained experimentally and with the help of a neutron-physical model.
Research Methods. The main tool used for instrumental neutron activation analysis is a semiconductor detector based on highly pure germanium crystals under the general label HPGe (HPG). This paper is devoted to modeling one of these detectors using the Monte Carlo method and the MCNP program that implements it.
Results. In the course of research, in particular: a) a large number of experimental measurements were made with a Canberra GC1518 semiconductor detector using a set of standard sources at various distances and angles of rotation, b) variant models were created, c) parametric modeling was performed, d) analysis was performed and conclusion was made on the sensitive crystal volume of the detector.
A model has been developed that repeats the parameters of a real gamma-spectrometer, which makes it possible to calculate the efficiency of recording gamma-rays in a wide range of energies up to 1.5 MeV.

Keywords: semiconductor detector, crystal volume, registration efficiency, gamma radiation, Monte Carlo method

The paper continues the series of publications describing physical processes and models for implementation of a new type of emitter based on the use of electrokinetic phenomenon of electroosmosis. The mathematical description of the phenomenon named "flow potential" and procedure of its adjustment are presented. It is shown that the presence of reversibility of two electrokinetic phenomena: electroosmosis and flow potential–allows using the same transducer based on the presence of a developed double electrical layer, in the acoustic oscillations emitter mode and in the receiver mode. This reversibility is expressed by writing the Navier–Stokes equation for the case of a flow potential (receiver), which turned out to be equivalent to the similar equation for the case of electroosmosis (emitter). The analysis of the obtained expressions is performed.

In this work, the solid angle was calculated by starting within which the electrons fall on the detector of a cylindrical mirror. The study of the solid angle, starting within which the electrons fall on the detector, showed that along the range of change of energy and along the range of change of the radius of emission, the maximum of the solid angle is observed. The radius of the largest deviation of electrons from the inner cylinder is obtained as a series, which provides good accuracy for angles up to 20. The solution of the equation of motion of electrons in a cylindrical mirror, obtained as a Taylor series, showed good agreement with the results of direct integration of the modified equation of motion.

Keywords: energy analyzer, cylindrical mirror, emission ring, output aperture
