Characterization of a microfluidic device for autonomous biological cell entrapment and electrical interrogation
Microfluidic devices have become a great tool to target biological cells individually. They are easy to manufacture, involve short time assays, use small sample and reagent volumes, and usually have low Reynolds number ...
Characterization of a robust flow-through microfluidic device for single-cell electroporation
Electroporation, or electropermeabilization, is a physical phenomenon that occurs when a biological cell is subjected to an external electric field. This technique is typically used in laboratory or medical settings when ...
Design of a point-of-care incubation and fluorescence detection unit for microfluidic lab-on-a-chip applications
Some parts of the world are underdeveloped and lack access to complete laboratory facilities. Where there is access, laboratory testing is an expensive and time consuming process. The team at Weibel Lab addressed the matter ...
Design and characterization of a pressure differential trapping mechanism for suspended micro-particles in a micro-fluidic device
The increasing interest for dedicated analysis of single particles at microscopic scales, such as biological cells, has led researchers to create micro-fluidic systems capable of trapping particles in a liquid flow. The ...
