Abstract In this paper, a simple syringe-assisted pumping method was introduced. Compared with previous study , the proposed design does not require pre-designed vacuum chambers, the multiple pumps can be integrated into one device and [...]
Fused deposition modelling (FDM) has been extensively applied in the fields of rapid prototyping and 3D printing, but typically this technique has mostly been used for the fabrication of low melting point plastics. This paper [...]
Photoacoustic imaging involves the use of optics (typically a high power pulsed laser) and acoustics (ultrasonics frequency ranges >1MHz) to image a targeted object. Individually, these modalities, being optical and ultrasonic imaging, can be quantified [...]
Continuous flow bioseparators allow magnetic particles that are properly functionalized so that they get attached to dangerous pathogens, to be easily captured in a buffer solution. Specifically, the unique properties of magnetic particles enable their [...]
This paper reports an automated platform for quantitative multi-step assays composed of two main components: a microfluidic chip using collapsible chambers pneumatically actuated and a portable instrument to automate the fluidic operations. To achieve a [...]
Companion diagnostics are an indispensable part of personalized medicine, providing information that is essential for the safe and effective use of a corresponding therapeutic drug. Such devices need to be robust, transportable and easy to [...]

The use of droplet-based microfluidic systems has increased in the last decade due to the advantages these systems present, such as compatibility with many chemical and biological reagents, capability of performing a variety of “digital [...]
The aim of this presentation is to describe the numerical modeling of a dynamically reconfigurable liquid-core liquid-cladding (L2) lens in a microfluidic channel, followed by a quantitative validation against the experimental results . The lens [...]
Unique interactions of ferrofluids with magnetic fields can be exploited to achieve enhanced heat transfer for myriad fluidic based applications. In this study, we use a numerical simulation to investigate the transient behaviour of flow [...]
A method is proposed for estimating the porosity of paper by comparing the electric current passing through a wax-printed channel patterned on the paper surface with that passing through a hollow PDMS channel. To ensure [...]
