  1. 1. A Fully Integrated Microneedle-based Transdermal Drug Delivery System

    Author : Niclas Roxhed; Göran Stemme; Mark G. Allen; KTH; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Microneedle; Transdermal; Intradermal; Drug delivery; DRIE; MEMS; Microsystem; Medical technology; Medicinsk teknik;

    Abstract : Patch-based transdermal drug delivery offers a convenient way to administer drugs without the drawbacks of standard hypodermic injections relating to issues such as patient acceptability and injection safety. However, conventional transdermal drug delivery is limited to therapeutics where the drug can diffuse across the skin barrier. READ MORE

  2. 2. MEMS-based electrochemical gas sensors and wafer-level methods

    Author : Hithesh K Gatty; Göran Stemme; Roxhed Niclas; Anita Lloyd Spetz; KTH; []
    Keywords : MEMS; gas sensors; electrochemical; nitric oxide; hydrogen sulphide; nafion; nano;

    Abstract : This thesis describes novel microel ectromechanical system (MEMS) based electrochemical gas sensors and methods of fabrication.This thesis presents the research in two parts. In the first part, a method to handle a thin silicon wafer using an electrochemically active adhesive is described. READ MORE

  3. 3. Capillary-Driven Microfluidic Devices for Sample Preparation of Bio-Medical Specimens

    Author : Janosch D. Hauser; Niclas Roxhed; Göran Stemme; Charles Mace; KTH; []

    Abstract : Sample preparation is an integral part of bio-medical analysis routines, as it makes specimens of interest compatible with downstream instrumentation. Correct and proper sample preparation is of critical importance for reliable analysis results. READ MORE

  4. 4. Advancing portable, aqueous drug delivery to the human lung

    Author : Torben Last; Göran Stemme; Niclas Roxhed; Claus-Michael Lehr; KTH; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Portable Inhaler; Biopharmaceuticals; Soft-mist inhaler; Transport vesicles; Microfluidic packaging; High-pressure microfluidics; aerosolization; cleanroom-free fabrication; drug delivery; micro-electromechanical systems MEMS ; Applied Medical Technology; Tillämpad medicinsk teknik;

    Abstract : Lung disease profoundly impacts human health: many lung diseases are currently without cure and require continued treatment. Due to their ease of use and integration into the daily routine, portable inhalers are the preferred treatment option for patients. READ MORE

  5. 5. Capillary driven devices for patient-centric diagnostics

    Author : Gabriel Lenk; Niclas Roxhed; Göran Stemme; Jens Ducrée; KTH; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Capillary driven; Microfluidic; Dissolvable valves; PVA; Volume metering; Dried Blood Spots; DBS; Dried Plasma Spots; DPS; Medicinsk teknologi; Medical Technology;

    Abstract : Lateral flow assays is an example of a successful microfluidic platform relying on passive fluid transport, making them suitable for patient-centric and point-of-care applications. Flow control and valving in capillary driven devices typically rely on design-imprinted functions and operations which can be a limiting factor. READ MORE
