Microtechnologies for Cell Microenvironment Control and Monitoring
A great breadth of questions remains in cellular biology. Some questions cannot be answered using traditional analytical techniques and so demand the development of new tools for research. In the near future, the development ...
Phantom Membrane Microfluidic Cross-Flow Filtration Device for the Direct Optical Detection of Water Pollutants
The diffusion of autonomous sensing platforms capable of a remote large-scale surveillance of environmental water basins is currently limited by the cost and complexity of standard analytical methods. In order to create a ...
Manipulation of Fluid Flow Direction in Microfluidic Paper-Based Analytical Devices with an Ionogel Negative Passive Pump
Microfluidic paper-based analytical devices (microPADs) are a relatively new group of analytical tools thatrepresent an innovative low-cost platform technology for fluid handling and analysis. Nonetheless, microPADs lack ...
Reusable Ionogel-based Photo-actuators in a Lab-on-a-disc
This paper describes the design, fabrication and performance of a reusable ionogel-based photo-actuator, in-situ photopolymerised into a lab-on-a-disc microfluidic device, for flow control. The ionogel provides an effective ...
Poly(ionic Liquid) Thermo-responsive Hydrogel Microfluidic Actuators
tributylhexyl phosphonium sulfopropylacrylate (PSPA) poly(ionic liquid) (PILc) hydrogels as temperature controlled actuators in microfluidic devices. The hydrogel size is modulated by localised changes in its temperature ...
