Abstract:

We propose a novel microfluidic fractionation concept suitable for neutrally buoyant micron-sized particles. This approach takes advantage of the ability of grooved channel walls oriented at an angle to the direction of an external electric field to generate a...

Abstract:

This paper describes the utilization of vacuum to fill complex microchannels with liquid metal. Microchannels filled with liquid metal are useful as conductors for soft and stretchable electronics, as well as for microfluidic components such as electrodes, ant...

Abstract:

Varying microfluidic channel cross-sectional geometry can dramatically alter fluid flow behavior, particularly for capillary-driven flow. Most fabrication techniques, however, are planar and therefore incapable of providing depth-dependent variations in width....

Abstract:

High-density microfluidic chips contain plumbing networks with thousands of micromechanical valves and hundreds of individually addressable chambers. These fluidic devices are analogous to electronic integrated circuits fabricated using large scale integration...

Abstract:

Binding reaction kinetics of analyte-ligand at the level of a sensitive membrane into a microchannel of a biosensor has been limited by the formation of the boundary diffusion layer. Therefore, the response time increases and affects the overall performance of...

Abstract:

We demonstrate herein an integrated, smartphone-app-chip (SPAC) system for on-site quantitation of food toxins, as demonstrated with aflatoxin B1 (AFB1), at parts-per-billion (ppb) level in food products. The detection is based on an indirect competitive immun...

Abstract:

A method is developed to synthesize surface-enhanced Raman scattering (SERS) materials capable of single-molecule detection, integrated with a microfluidic system. Using a focused laser, silver nanoparticle aggregates as SERS monitors are fabricated in a micro...

Abstract:

Polymer membranes with the capability to process a massive volume of gas are especially attractive for practical applications of gas separation. Although much effort has been devoted to develop novel polymer membranes with increased selectivity, the overall ga...

Abstract:

A theory is presented for the transition between the coflowing and the drop-generation regimes observed in microfluidic channels with a rectangular cross section. This transition is characterized by a critical ratio of the dispersed- to continuous-phase volume...

July 18, 2017

Abstract:

Dense colloidal dispersions exhibit complex wave-vector-dependent diffusion, which is controlled by both direct particle interactions and indirect nonadditive hydrodynamic interactions mediated by the solvent. In bulk the hydrodynamic interactions are probed r...

Abstract:

In this work, the influence of laser ablation and lamination parameters in the fabrication of embedded microstructures using Low Temperature Co-Fired Ceramics, have been studied. First, the influence of laser ablation parameters in the dimensions of fabricated...

Abstract:

The development of portable biosening devices for the detection of biological entities such as biomolecules, pathogens, and cells has become extremely significant over the past years. Scientific research, driven by the promise for miniaturization and integrati...

Abstract:

We report on a jetting flow instability of shear banding worm-like micelle (WLM) solutions in microfluidic channels with rectangular cross-sections over an intermediate volumetric flow regime. Particle tracking methods are used to measure the three dimensional...

July 10, 2017

Abstract:

Exosomes, molecular cargos secreted by almost all mammalian cells, are considered as promising biomarkers to identify many diseases including cancers. However, the small size of exosomes (30–200 nm) poses serious challenges in their isolation from complex medi...

July 10, 2017

Abstract:

Terahertz-frequency-range measurements can offer potential insight into the picosecond dynamics, and therefore function, of many chemical systems. There is a need to develop technologies capable of performing such measurements in aqueous and polar environments...
