Fluidic Dielectrophoresis: Polarization and Manipulation at Liquid/liquid Interfaces
This work presents a new type of alternating current (AC) interfacial polarization and frequency dependent fluid displacement phenomenon at a liquid/liquid electrical interface and how it can be used for microfluidic ...
Contactless metal-based EK pump and potential implementations
Abstract Developments of robust microfluidic tools that can manipulate fluids and their contents quickly, easily and without the need for an experienced operator are important requirements in portable diagnostic devices. ...
Particle trajectories around solid or fluid obstacle in microfluidic channels
(Johns Hopkins University, 2016-08-01)
Particle separation is a technological area where microfluidics shows promises towards miniaturization, specificity, and throughput. We study here the mechanisms for particle separation in deterministic lateral displacement ...
EXTRACELLULAR MATRIX PROTEIN LAMININ DRIVES MOTILITY IN GRANULOCYTE-MACROPHAGE PROGENITORS IN SINGLE-CELL CULTURE
(Johns Hopkins University, 2017-08-21)
Single-cell culture is emerging as a powerful tool for transcriptomics with heterogeneous cell populations, but adequate in vitro extracellular matrix (ECM) conditions have yet to be determined for singulated culture of ...
DROPLET-BASED MICROFLUIDIC PLATFORMS FOR HIGH-THROUGHPUT DNA GENOTYPING AND AMPLIFICATION
(Johns Hopkins University, 2017-08-14)
Common genetic analysis instruments in genotyping, allele discrimination, and PCR are standardized, indispensable tools in biological, medical, and science research laboratories and R&D industry sectors across the world. ...
MINIMIZING OPTIMAL CO2 FEED TO ALGAL CULTURES UTLIZING MICROFLUIDIC DEVICES GENERATING MICRON-SIZED BUBBLES
(Johns Hopkins University, 2015-07-07)
With amplified environmental damage caused by increased carbon dioxide levels in the atmosphere and the rising cost of energy, algae offer solutions to both world issues as well as many others. Microalgae naturally produce ...
