Microelectronics Meets Microfluidics: Hybrid Integration of Sensors in Microfluidic Devices
Conference Recording May 21, 2013
About the SpeakerDr. Holger Becker is co-founder and CSO of microfluidic ChipShop GmbH. He obtained physics degrees from the University of Western Australia/Perth and the University of Heidelberg. He started to work on miniaturized systems for chemical analysis during his PhD-thesis at Heidelberg university, where he obtained his PhD in 1995.
AbstractIn addition to the well established optical detection methods, a recent development in lab-on-a-chip technology is the increased use of sensor technology for the detection of analytes in a microfluidic system. These sensors can range from relatively simple electrochemical sensors to electronically read-out microarrays or highly integrated nano-electrode sensors with on-chip signal processing capabilities. These sensors require innovative technological solutions for their integration into a microfluidic cartridge. We will present solutions for such integrated systems for the detection of biomarkers, proteins and nucleic acids for applications in rapid infectious disease identification or drug efficacy monitoring.
