  1. 1. The Multifunctional Pipette. A Microfluidic Technology for the Biosciences

    Author : Alar Ainla; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; microfluidic superfusion; microfluidic temperature sensing.; microfluidic dilution; hydrodynamic flow confinement; microfluidic mixer; supported lipid membranes; single-cell analysis; Microfluidics; microfabrication; PDMS;

    Abstract : The theme of the work described in this thesis is the generation and application of liquid microenvironments in chemistry and bioscience using microfluidic devices. First, a computer controlled multi-stage dilution system to generate time-dependent chemical waves was developed, and its application was demonstrated on model biomembranes. READ MORE

  2. 2. Heterogeneous Technologies for Microfluidic Systems

    Author : Gunjana Sharma; Klas Hjort; Sami Franssila; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : actuator; biosensor; fluidic circuit board; heterogeneous technology; ion track; microfluidic; pump; stainless steel; super-hydrophobic; valve; Viton; TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIKVETENSKAP; Teknisk fysik med inriktning mot mikrosystemteknik; Engineering Science with specialization in Microsystems Technology;

    Abstract : In this thesis, conventional and unconventional technologies have been studied and combined in order to make heterogeneous microfluidics with potential advantages, especially in biological applications. Many conventional materials, like silicon, glass, thermoplastic polymers, polyimide and polydimethylsiloxane (PDMS) have been combined in building heterogeneous microfluidic devices or demonstrators.

  3. 3. Microfluidic biosensing systems based on enzymes, antibodies and cells

    Author : Richard Davidsson; Centrum för analys och syntes; []
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Analytical chemistry; Analytisk kemi; chemiluminescence; immobilization; cell; antibody; enzyme; miniaturization; Microfluidic; microchip;

    Abstract : The rapid developments within the life science and biotechnology areas put up ever-new demands on more sophisticated techniques and methods for chemical and biological analysis to reach deeper insight into the events at molecular level. Miniaturisation of assays and systems on microchips is one way to increase throughput and advance through parallel analysis lines, multiplexing and integration. READ MORE
