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

    University dissertation from Stockholm : KTH Royal Institute of Technology

    Author : Indradumna Banerjee; KTH.; [2019]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; 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.; Biotechnology; Bioteknologi;

    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.

    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Biotechnology; Bioteknologi;

    Abstract : Despite the many promising advances made in microfluidics, sample preparation remains the single largest challenge and bottleneck in the field of miniaturised diagnostics. This thesis is focused on the development of sample preparation methods using active and passive particle manipulation techniques for point of care diagnostic applications. READ MORE

  3. 3. Microfluidic bases sample preparation for blood stream infections

    University dissertation from Stockholm : KTH Royal Institute of Technology

    Author : Sahar Ardabili; KTH.; [2014]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; sample-preparation; microfluidics; sepsis; size-based separation; selective cell-lysis; immune-based isolation; Biotechnology; Bioteknologi;

    Abstract : Microfluidics promises to re-shape the current health-care system by transferring diagnostic tools from central laboratories to close vicinity of the patient (point-of-care). One of the most important operational steps in any diagnostic platform is sample preparation, which is the main subject in this thesis. READ MORE

  4. 4. Microfluidic based isolation of circulating tumor cells from whole blood for cancer diagnostics

    University dissertation from stockholm : KTH Royal Institute of Technology

    Author : Harisha Ramachandraiah; KTH.; [2017]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Biotechnology; Bioteknologi;

    Abstract : Detection of circulating tumor cells (CTC) in peripheral blood is indicative of early recognition of tumor progression and such an important biomarker for early diagnosis, staging, monitoring and prognosis of cancer. However, CTC are found in very low concentrations and reliable isolation of these rare cells is challenging. READ MORE
