Mousavi Shaegh Seyed Ali, Wang Zhenfeng, Toh Guek Geok, Soh Yong Chear
Scientists have developed a novel on-chip valving solution for thermoplastic microfluidic devices, which is reliable, easy to implement, and has low-cost fabrication.
|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 .
|Rapid Concentration of Particles in Microfluidics using AC Electrothermal Effect with Laser Illumination|
In this study, the formation of a toroidal microvortex by AC electrothermal (ACET) effect was numerically visualized using COMSOL v4.2a multiphysics software. AC voltage was applied to the two parallel electrodes in a microchannel to generate temperature gradient in the fluids.
|Microfluidic analysis of amino acids using aminoacyl-tRNA synthetase coupled with spectrophotometric detection|
Analyses of free amino acids in biological fluids?—?such as urine and plasma?—?can be useful in determining disease status in clinical diagnoses . In the food industry, unique changes in amino acid concentrations are useful markers of freshness, nutrition, and taste.
|Microfluidic Sample Extraction Device with an Integrated Pressure Measurement|
J. Varfolomeeva, C. Müller, L. Riegger, H. Reinecke
Bioanalytical applications, like the monitoring of metabolic processes, often require a continuous sample extraction. In this work we describe a microfluidic device which is able to subsequently extract samples in microliter range out of a continuous sample stream and provides an optional integrated channel for the measurement of the fluid pressure.
|Rapid PCR for Integration in Sample-to-answer Analysis Platforms|
S. Brunklaus, T.E. Hansen-Hagge, J. Erwes, J. Höth, M. Jung, D. Latta, X. Strobach, C. Winkler, T. Röser, M. Ritzi-Lehnert, K.S. Drese
This poster describes how molecular testing at the point-of-care can increase time to results and yield rather specific information, concentrating on PCR on a chip layout which proves to be fast and robust.
|Lab-on-a-Chip System for Detection of Mycotoxins in Animal Feed|
S. Brunklaus, V. Stein, M. Jakubowski, M. Ritzi-Lehnert, K.S. Drese, R. Colasanto, P. Poletti
This poster introduces an automated Lab-on-a-Chip system for reliable quantitative testing of mycotoxin contamination of animal feed developed in the framework of the EU-funded project micro- FLUID.
|Laser Welded Microfluidic Plasma Seperation Unit with On-Chip Pressure Conversion|
Thomas Brettschneider, Christian Dorrer, Roland Zengerle and Martina Daub
This poster shows how microfluidic components for the separation of plasma from full blood can be cost-effective, with reliable processing and the production of quality plasma.
|One Pot Method for the Simultaneous Synthesis and Anchoring of Organic Monolith Inside COC Microchip Channel|
Y. Ladner, A. Bruchet, V. Dugas, J. Randon, G. Crétier, K. Faure
Study shows monolith synthesis in COC microchip, including: the influence of BME concentration on performances; the separations of primary amines.
