  1. 1. Droplet microfluidics for high throughput biological analysis

    University dissertation from Stockholm : KTH Royal Institute of Technology

    Author : Håkan Jönsson; Helene Andersson-Svahn; Andrew Griffiths; [2011]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Microfluidics; Droplet microfluidics; High throughput biology; Single cell analysis; Hydrodynamic separation; Enzyme amplification; Fluorescence polarization; Microfabrication; TECHNOLOGY Bioengineering; TEKNIKVETENSKAP Bioteknik; SRA - Molekylär biovetenskap; SRA - Molecular Bioscience;

    Abstract : Many areas of biological research increasingly perform large-scale analyses.  In genomics the entire gene repertoire of an organism is analyzed.  Proteomics attempts to understand the function and expression patterns of all proteins in a cell or organism. READ MORE

  2. 2. Microfluidics in Surface Modified PDMS Towards Miniaturized Diagnostic Tools

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Sara Thorslund; Uppsala universitet.; [2006]
    Keywords : Materials science; µTAS; micro total analysis system; PDMS; poly dimethylsiloxane ; microfluidics; heparin; blood filtration; on-chip; ESI-MS; desalting; QCM-D; biocompatible; CD4; capillary flow; lab-on-chip; microfabrication; enrichment; point-of-care; hydrophilic; oxidation; Materialvetenskap;

    Abstract : There is a strong trend in fabricating miniaturized total analytical systems, µTAS, for various biochemical and cell biology applications. These miniaturized systems could e.g. gain better separation performances, be faster, consume less expensive reagents and be used for studies that are difficult to access in the macro world.

  3. 3. Microfluidics Separation and Analysis of Biological Particles

    University dissertation from Fasta Tillståndets Fysik

    Author : Jason Beech; [2011]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Point-of-care; Lab-on-a-chip; Microfluidics; Separation science; Deterministic Lateral Displacement; morphology; deformability; Fysicumarkivet A:2011:Beech;

    Abstract : In the last decade, powerful communication and information technology in the form of the mobile phone has been put into the hands of more than 50% of the global population. In stark contrast, a lack of access to medical diagnostic technology with which to diagnose both communicable and non-communicable diseases will mean that many of these people will die of easily treatable conditions.

  4. 4. High-Pressure Microfluidics

    University dissertation from Fasta Tillståndets Fysik

    Author : Sam Ogden; Klas Hjort; Greger Thornell; Wouter van der Wijngaart; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; phase change; actuator; valve; pump; supercritical fluid; Teknisk fysik med inriktning mot mikrosystemteknik; Engineering Science with specialization in Microsystems Technology;

    Abstract : In this thesis, some fundamentals and possible applications of high-pressure microfluidics have been explored. Furthermore, handling fluids at high pressures has been addressed, specifically by creating and characterizing strong microvalves and pumps.A variety of microstructuring techniques was used to realize these microfluidic devices, e.g. READ MORE

  5. 5. Piezoactuators for Microfluidics Towards Dynamic Arraying

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Tobias Lilliehorn; Uppsala universitet.; [2003]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Materials science; Materialvetenskap; TECHNOLOGY Materials science; TEKNIKVETENSKAP Teknisk materialvetenskap;

    Abstract : Microfluidics can be used to increase performance, reduce reagent consumption and increase throughput in chemical analysis. With the forthcoming development of more advanced microfluidic systems, the integration of actuating elements becomes essential, giving the ability to control and manipulate fluid flow as well as sample or other components.
