A PDMS Sample Pre-treatment Device for the Optimization of Electrokinetic Manipulations of Serum
Poster Aug 05, 2009
A PDMS “sample pretreatment” device has been fabricated in order to selectively tune key biological sample parameters which will optimize the sample for subsequent electrokinetic manipulations. We have shown that a raw sample can be homogeneously combined with specific buffers in a DC pulse micromixer in under 1.5 seconds.
The immune system is a striking example of an integrated information system, engaged in coordinated host-protective activities. Organs-on-chip approach (OOC) models allow the direct simultaneous observation of hundreds of different cells, moving, interacting and responding to signals coming from the microenvironment nearby, that give access to a number of parameters describing the system that must be properly measured and elaborated.READ MORE
