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.

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].

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 [1]. 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.
