Nurul Amziah Md Yunus, Farideh Abhari, Mohd Nizar Hamidon, Zurina Zainal Abidin, Izhal Abdul Halin, Gerard H. Markx and Nicolas G. Green
Microfluidic systems are used for chemical and biological analyses, sensing, drug delivery and molecular separation.
|Low-cost “Plug & Play” On-Chip Valve and Pump for Thermoplastic Microfluidics|
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.
