  2. 2. Droplet Acoustofluidics for Biochemical Applications

    Author : Zhenhua Liu; Maria Tenje; Anna Fornell; Nicole Pamme; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Droplet microfluidics; Acoustophoresis; Pico-injection; Droplet split; Biochemical reaction; In-droplet cell culture.; Teknisk fysik med inriktning mot mikrosystemteknik; Engineering Science with specialization in Microsystems Technology;

    Abstract : Droplet microfluidics is a promising platform for biochemical applications where compartmentalized droplets serve as individual vials. Droplets are formed by using two immiscible phases, the continuous phase and the dispersed phase, making up the droplets. READ MORE

  3. 3. Clinical applications of acoustophoresis in blood based diagnostics

    Author : Klara Petersson; Avdelningen för Biomedicinsk teknik; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Acoustophoresis; Acoustofluidics; Ultrasound; Microfluidics; Blood; Blood Separation; Blood plasma; Lab-on-a-chip; Point-of-care; Blood diagnostics;

    Abstract : In this thesis, acoustofluidics has been used to process blood samples as a sample preparation step prior to biomarker detection. This is often required as the large amount of blood cells otherwise can interfere with the detection method. Acoustofluidics means moving particles or cells with acoustic forces within microfluidic channels. READ MORE

  4. 4. On microchannel acoustophoresis - Experimental considerations and life science applications

    Author : Per Augustsson; Avdelningen för Biomedicinsk teknik; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; microtechnology; microfluidics; lab on a chip; separation; acoustophoresis; ultrasound; acoustic resonance; acoustic radiation force; phage display; circulating tumour cells; acoustofluidics;

    Abstract : This thesis presents experimental studies of microchannel acoustophoresis, a technique for manipulation of microscopic objects in suspension by means of acoustic radiation forces induced by ultrasonic standing wave fields. By arranging an acoustic resonance across the width of a microchannel, the path of individual cells or microparticles can be deflected orthogonally to the fluid flow. READ MORE

  5. 5. Ultrasonic Fluid and Cell Manipulation

    Author : Mathias Ohlin; Martin Viklund; Hans Hertz; Peter Glynne-Jones; KTH; []
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; 3D cell culture; Acoustic streaming; Acoustofluidics; Cell manipulation; High-resolution imaging; Multi-well; Microplate; Natural killer cell; Piezo; Radiation force; Solid tumor; Solubilization; Spheroid; Standing wave; Temperature control; Transducer; Trapping; Ultrasonic; Fysik; Physics; Biological Physics; Biologisk fysik;

    Abstract : During the last decade, ultrasonic manipulation has matured into an important tool with a wide range of applications, from fundamental cell biological research to clinical and industrial implementations. The contactless nature of ultrasound makes it possible to manipulate living cells in a gentle way, e.g. READ MORE
