11. A Glowing Future for Lab on a Chip Testing Standards
Topic: Microfluidics
Published: 6/28/2012
Author: Samuel M Stavis
Abstract: Testing standards are more fundamental from a metrological perspective and less controversial from an industrial perspective than product standards, representing a path of less resistance towards the standardization and commercialization of lab on a ...

12. Fabrication of Microelectrodes on Polyester Membranes for Dielectrophoretic Cell Capture
Topic: Microfluidics
Published: 6/18/2012
Authors: Conni Hanke, Petra S. Dittrich, Darwin R Reyes-Hernandez
Abstract: We present a new system for cell capturing on permeable polyester (PET) membranes using dielectrophoretic forces. For the first time gold microelectrodes were fabricated on PET membranes using conventional photolithographic techniques. Their charac ...

13. Engineering and Analysis of Surface Interactions in a Microfluidic Herringbone Micromixer
Topic: Microfluidics
Published: 5/18/2012
Authors: Thomas P Forbes, Jason G Kralj
Abstract: We developed a computational model and theoretical framework to investigate the geometrical optimization of particle-surface interactions in a herringbone micromixer. The enhancement of biomolecule- and particle-surface interactions in microfluidic d ...

14. Characterization of Immunomagnetic Separation in Microfluidic Magnetophoresis Systems
Topic: Microfluidics
Published: 2/13/2012
Authors: Thomas P Forbes, Samuel P Forry
Abstract: Immunomagnetic isolation and magnetophoresis in microfluidics have emerged as viable techniques for the separation, fractionation, and enrichment of rare cells. Here, we present the development and characterization of a microfluidic system that incor ...

15. A robust diffusion-based gradient generator for dynamic cell assays.
Topic: Microfluidics
Published: 1/1/2012
Authors: Francisco Javier Atencia, Gregory A Cooksey, Laurie E Locascio
Abstract: This manuscript describes a new method to generate purely diffusive chemical gradients that can be modified in time. The device is simple in its design and easy to use, which makes it amenable to study biological processes that involve static or dy ...

16. Nucleation and Growth Dynamics of Bubbles formed by Pulse-heating a Microscale Surface in a Sub-cooled Liquid under Partial Vacuum
Topic: Microfluidics
Published: 12/1/2011
Authors: Richard E Cavicchi, Charles Thomas Avedisian
Abstract: The influence of ambient pressure below atmospheric and heating rate on bubble dynamics associated with rapid evaporation in highly superheated water is investigated in this work. The average surface temperature of thin platinum strips immersed in ...

17. Three dimensional aspects of droplet coalescence during dropwise condensation on superhydrophobic surfaces
Topic: Microfluidics
Published: 8/24/2011
Authors: Konrad Rykaczewski, John Henry j Scott, Sukumar Rajauria, W Robert Ashurst, Jeff Chinn, Amy Chinn, Wanda Jones
Abstract: We report formation of nano-to-microscale satellite droplets in the geometrical shadow of high contact angle primary drops during dropwise water condensation on a nanostructured superhydrophobic surface. The primary drops contribute to the heat tran ...

18. O2 A-band line parameters to support atmospheric remote sensing. Part II: The rare isotopologues
Topic: Microfluidics
Published: 7/21/2011
Authors: Joseph Terence Hodges, David A Long, Daniel K Havey, S. S. Yu, M Okumura, Charles E Miller
Abstract: Frequency-stabilized cavity ring-down spectroscopy (FS-CRDS) was employed to measure over 100 transitions in the R-branch of the b1Σg+←X3Σg-(0,0) band for the rare O2 isotopologues. The use of 17O- and 18O-enriched mixtures allowed fo ...

19. Expanding the capabilities of microfluidic gradient elution moving boundary electrophoresis for complex samples
Topic: Microfluidics
Published: 7/18/2011
Authors: Alyssa Henry, David J Ross, Elizabeth A Strychalski
Abstract: Gradient elution moving boundary electrophoresis (GEMBE) is a robust continuous injection separation technique that uses electrophoresis to drive electrically charged analytes into a capillary or microfluidic channel for detection, while opposing ...

20. Reproducibility and Robustness of a Real-Time Microfluidic Cell Toxicity Assay
Topic: Microfluidics
Published: 5/15/2011
Authors: Gregory A Cooksey, John T Elliott, Anne L Plant
Abstract: Numerous opportunities exist to apply microfluidic technology to high-throughput and high-content cell-based assays. However, maximizing the value of these assays for drug discovery, screening or toxicity evaluation, for example, will require va ...
