  3. 3. Point of care microfluidic tool development for resource limited settings

    Author : Indradumna Banerjee; Aman Russom; Luca Brandt; Gustaf Mårtensson; Jens Ducrée; KTH; []
    Keywords : Blood; control; cell separation; centrifugal microfluidics; diagnostics; elasto-inertial; hematocrit level; microfluidics; neonatal diagnostics; nucleic acid quantification; point of care; particle focusing; resource limited settings.; Bioteknologi; Biotechnology;

    Abstract : The development of point of care diagnostics using recent advances in microfluidics have the potential to transform health care in several ways, especially in resource limited settings with limited access to advanced health care infrastructure. However, translating a point of care device to reality is often a challenging task because of the complexities involved in integrating a number of diverse engineering concepts into an easy to use, accurate and portable device.

    Abstract : Advancements in medical diagnostics have allowed us to understand the underlying mechanism and treat the root cause for many diseases which had been causing morbidity and mortality up until this point in human history. Furthermore, many of the standard diagnostic procedures have now been transformed to provide answers at or near the point-of-care. READ MORE

  5. 5. Novel planar and particle-based microarrays for point-of-care diagnostics

    Author : Gustav Svedberg; Helene Svahn Andersson; Jesper Gantelius; Fridtjof Lund-Johansen; KTH; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Planar microarrays; Particle-based microarrays; Point-of-care diagnostics; Colorimetric detection; Signal enhancement; Isothermal DNA amplification; Solid-phase DNA amplification; Biotechnology; Bioteknologi;

    Abstract : Point-of-care assays are easy-to-use, portable and inexpensive tests that canbe used to aid diagnostics by measuring levels of disease-specific moleculesin settings where access to advanced laboratory equipment and trainedpersonnel are limited, such as at the patient's bedside or in low resourceparts of developing countries. In order to achieve high multiplexingcapacities, such assays can be based on planar microarrays consisting ofspots immobilized on a flat surface or on particle-based microarrays basedon populations of encoded particles.
