Conference Recording Jan 21, 2013
About the Speaker
Han Gardeniers (BSc: 1982; MSc: 1985; PhD: 1990) started as an assistant professor in the field of Micromechanical Tranducers at the University of Twente in 1990. His research interest and expertise is in miniaturized chemical synthesis and analysis systems and in nanotechnology related to the study of biomolecular interactions and dynamics in confinement.
Microfluidic technology allows accurate handling of liquid volumes in the nl to µl range, in miniaturized systems with integrated in-situ monitoring elements. This development is especially relevant for the Life Sciences, but also offers opportunities for process analytical technology. Several device examples will be discussed, including HPLC on a chip and microfluidic NMR and IR probes.
