Direct On-chip Storage and Release of Liquid Reagents for Diagnostic Lab-on-a-Chip Devices
Daniel Czurratis*, Thomas Brettschneider*, Yvonne Beyl*, Sven Zinober*, Franz Lärmer*, Roland Zengerle**

We present a direct on-chip storage and release of liquid reagents for diagnostic lab-on-a-chip devices. Reagent release is pressure driven and realized by braking up a barrier film through a deflection of a flexible membrane.

Polymerized Poly(ethylene glycol) Diacrylate Microfluidic Membrane Valves
Chad I. Rogers, Joseph B. Oxborrow, Long-Fang Tsai, Gregory P. Nordin, and Adam T. Woolley

Polymerized poly(ethylene glycol) diacrylate (poly-PEGDA) was fabricated into pneumatically controlled, non-elastomeric membrane valves as a nonspecific adsorption resistant alternative to polydimethylsiloxane valves. Temporal response, valve closure, and long-term durability of these poly-PEGDA valves were evaluated.

Rapid analysis of 3D tumour spheroids in soft agar and on ultra-low attachment plates using a laser scanning imaging system
Anne F Hammerstein, Diana Caracino, and Paul Wylie

The requirement for better in-vitro models that are compatible with high-throughput screening campaigns has led to the development of 3D cell cultures models, especially muliticellular spheroids, which retain many of the morphological and genetic traits of tumours.
Here we describe the formation of such spheroids by two methods: on ultra-low attachment plates and in semi-solid agarose. Both methods are compatible with 96- and 384-well microplate formats.

Combining low and high volume liquid handling capabilities for ADME screening
Joby Jenkins, Kevin Moore, Stephen Fowler, Pascal Schenk

In this study we demonstrate the integration of two liquid handlers to extend the volume dispensing range creating low-volume assay-ready plates with high accuracy and precision. This was then successfully applied to a CYP inhibition assay.

A novel DNA amplification method based on silicon microring resonator for rapid detection of genetic alteration in the point-of care (POC) field of cancers

Nucleic acid testing plays a critical role in molecular diagnosis[1-2]. Due to the low amounts of DNA obtained in clinical samples, the amplification of DNA is an essential step in most NAT methods [3].
