Re: Elastic cytoplasm film.

It sounds like a black lipid membrane system is the sort of system you are looking for. However, the membranes are fairly unstable, so I doubt you could set one up that would last for months. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Model_lipid_bilayer

Re: Elastic cytoplasm film.

... Thank you for the answer! Indeed, a membrane is a better word for what I am looking for, English isn't my native tongue. The membrane should be elastic, but it would be fine if this membrane pops now and then (an average of 2 months lifespan would be great!) I'm somewhat a leek in biology so ...

Re: Elastic cytoplasm film.

I don't know what a "cytoplasm film" would be. A black membrane system comes to mind, in which a planar phospholipid bilayer is formed by painting the phospholipids across a small aperture in a rigid sheet separating two chambers containing aqueous solutions. Such a system cannot withstand...

Elastic cytoplasm film.

Hi all, I'm trying to find out where I can find or how I can make an elastic cytoplasm film. It will be used as a separation between two chambers with a different (changing) air pressure, this means the film needs to be elastic to move in and outward. Who ...

Re: Can Systolic BP ever be less than Diastolic?

... it pushes the blood out into vein/artery system, so the pressure rises as the blood must move from one location to another and since arteries are elastic, they expand to compensate the pressure. When heart shrinks, it "sucks" the blood back and makes more room for blood, so the pressure ...
