Anxiety, Separation definition: Anxiety experienced by an individual upon separation from a person or object of particular significance to him.
cell sorting definition: applies only to artificial, usually extracorporeal techniques; for natural, in vivo processes, use CELL MIGRATION.
Cell Sorting definition: Techniques and methods for separating cells (usually viable) based on a variety of criteria for separation, such as size or density, non-specific surface properties, or specific surface properties. Examples include cell affinity chromatography and centrifugation using density gradients.
Chromatography definition: Techniques used to separate mixtures of substances based on differences in the relative affinities of the substances for mobile and stationary phases. A mobile phase (fluid or gas) passes through a column containing a stationary phase of porous solid or liquid coated on a solid support. Usage is both analytical for small amounts and preparative for bulk amounts.
chromatography definition: diverse group of techniques used to separate mixtures of substances based on differences in relative affinities for two different media, one a mobile phase and the other a stationary or sorbent phase.
Chromatography definition: A technique for the separation of complex mixtures that relys on the differential affinities of substances for a gas or liquid mobile medium and for a stationary adsorbing medium through which they pass.
Chromatography definition: Chromatography
Retinal Detachment definition: Separation of the inner layers of the retina (neural retina) from the pigment epithelium. Retinal detachment occurs more commonly in men than in women, in eyes with degenerative myopia, in aging and in aphakia. It may occur after an uncomplicated cataract extraction, but it is seen more often if vitreous humor has been lost during surgery. (Dorland, 27th ed; Newell, Ophthalmology: Principles and Concepts, 7th ed, p310-12).
retina detachment definition: separation of the inner layers of the retina from the pigment epithelium.
Retinal Detachment definition: An eye emergency condition which may lead to blindness if left untreated. It is characterized by the separation of the inner retina layers from the underlying pigment epithelium. Causes include trauma, advanced diabetes mellitus, high myopia, and choroid tumors. Symptoms include sudden appearance of floaters, sudden light flushes, and blurred vision.
Onycholysis definition: Separation of nail plate from the underlying nail bed. It can be a sign of skin disease, infection (such as ONYCHOMYCOSIS) or tissue injury.
divorce/separation definition: action or instance of legally dissolving a marriage or cessation of cohabitation between a married couple by mutual agreement or judicial decree.
Immunomagnetic Separation definition: A cell-separation technique where magnetizable microspheres or beads are first coated with monoclonal antibody, allowed to search and bind to target cells, and are then selectively removed when passed through a magnetic field. Among other applications, the technique is commonly used to remove tumor cells from the marrow (BONE MARROW PURGING) of patients who are to undergo autologous bone marrow transplantation.
immunomagnetic separation definition: cell separation technique; used clinically in bone marrow purging; may possibly become a critical tool in food inspection serving as a prototype for a diagnostic assay in detecting microbial contaminants in food.
CHROMATOGRAPHIC SEPARATION/ZIMMERMAN, 17-KETOSTEROIDS definition: A 17-ketosteroids test system is a device intended to measure 17-ketosteroids in urine. Measurements of 17-ketosteroids are used in the diagnosis and treatment of disorders of the adrenal cortex and gonads and of other endocrine disorders, including hypertension, diabetes, and hypothyroidism.
ACID, VANILMANDELIC, ELECTROPHORETIC SEPARATION definition: A vanilmandelic acid test system is a device intended to measure vanilmandelic acid in urine. Measurements of vanilmandelic acid obtained by this device are used in the diagnosis and treatment of neuroblastoma, pheochromocytoma, and certain hypertensive conditions.
CHROMATOGRAPHIC SEPARATION/RADIOIMMUNOASSAY, ALDOSTERONE definition: An aldosterone test system is a device intended to measure the hormone aldosterone in serum and urine. Aldosterone measurements are used in the diagnosis and treatment of primary aldosteronism (a disorder caused by the excessive secretion of aldosterone by the adrenal gland), hypertension caused by primary aldosteronism, selective hypoaldosteronism, edematous states, and other conditions of electrolyte imbalance.
LYMPHOCYTE SEPARATION MEDIUM definition: A lymphocyte separation medium is a device used to isolate lymphocytes from whole blood.
ELECTROPHORETIC SEPARATION, LIPOPROTEINS definition: A lipoprotein test system is a device intended to measure lipoprotein in serum and plasma. Lipoprotein measurements are used in the diagnosis and treatment of lipid disorders (such as diabetes mellitus), atherosclerosis, and various liver and renal diseases.
CHROMATOGRAPHIC SEPARATION, CPK ISOENZYMES definition: A creatine phosphokinase/creatine kinase or isoenzymes test system is a device intended to measure the activity of the enzyme creatine phosphokinase or its isoenzymes (a group of enzymes with similar biological activity) in plasma and serum. Measurements of creatine phosphokinase and its isoenzymes are used in the diagnosis and treatment of myocardial infarction and muscle diseases such as progressive, Duchenne-type muscular dystrophy.
psychosocial separation definition: division or parting occurring between two or more persons; separation from a person or object of particular significance to them.
cytokinesis, completion of separation definition: The process of finishing cell separation, which results in two physically separated cells. [GOC:clt, GOC:dph, GOC:tb]
cytokinesis, initiation of separation definition: The process involved in starting cell separation. [GOC:clt, GOC:dph, GOC:tb]
mitotic centrosome separation definition: Separation of duplicated centrosome components at the beginning of mitosis. The centriole pair within each centrosome becomes part of a separate microtubule organizing center that nucleates a radial array of microtubules called an aster. The two asters move to opposite sides of the nucleus to form the two poles of the mitotic spindle. [ISBN:0815316194]
cell separation during cytokinesis definition: The process of physically separating progeny cells during cytokinesis; this may involve enzymatic digestion of septum or cell wall components. [GOC:clt]
Epithelial Cell Aggregation and Separation definition: A method for rapidly obtaining near-pure aggregates of epithelial cell populations. Smears are prepared, rapidly fixed in methanol and stained. Microscopic examination permits precise identification of epithelial cell aggregates for separation by laser capture microdissection.
Magnetic Bead Separation definition: A cell-separation technique where magnetizable microspheres or beads are first coated with monoclonal antibody, allowed to search and bind to target cells, and are then selectively removed when passed through a magnetic field. Among other applications, the technique is commonly used to remove tumor cells from the marrow of patients who are to undergo autologous bone marrow transplantation.
meiotic sister chromatid separation definition: The process by which sister chromatids are physically detached from each other during meiosis. [GOC:ai, PMID:14730319, PMID:16325576]

centrosome separation definition: The process by which duplicated centrosome components move away from each other. The centriole pair within each centrosome becomes part of a separate microtubule organizing center that nucleates a radial array of microtubules called an aster.
