Photo- and Radiochemistry in Microfluidic Chips
Conference Recording Jul 31, 2013
About the SpeakerDr Nicole Pamme is a Senior Lecturer in Analytical Chemistry at the University of Hull (UK). Her research is focused on bioanalysis as well as chemical processing within in microfluidic devices. She obtained a degree in Chemistry from the University of Marburg (Germany) in 1999. This was followed by a PhD in Microfluidic Chemistry at Imperial College London (UK) with Prof. A. Manz. In 2004, she moved to Tsukuba (Japan) as an independent research fellow in the International Centre for Young Scientists (ICYS) based at the Japanese National Institute for Materials Science. She was appointed as a lecturer in Hull in 2005.
Miniaturising chemical processing and analysis to the microfluidic scale allows for precise reaction control. Two examples of efficient microfluidic chemistry are presented: (i) photo-chemistry for light initiated reactions and (ii) radiochemistry for dose-on-demand PET imaging tracers.
