Scanning Temperature Gradient Focusing

August 2, 2006
S J. Hoebel, K M. Balss, Barbara J. Jones, C Malliaris, Matt S. Munson, Wyatt N. Vreeland, David J. Ross
Temperature gradient focusing (TGF) is a recently developed technique for the simultaneous concentration and electrophoretic separation of ionic analytes in microfluidic channels. One drawback to TGF as it has previously been described is the limited peak

Capillarity Induced Solvent?Actuated Bonding of Polymeric Microfluidic Devices

April 12, 2006
Jayna J. Shah, Jon C. Geist, Laurie E. Locascio, Michael Gaitan, Rao Mulpuri, Wyatt N. Vreeland
Rapid, robust and economical fabrication of fluidic microchannels is of fundamental importance for the successful development of disposable lab-on-a-chip devices. In this work, we present a solvent-actuated bonding method for fabricating polymeric

Liposomes As Model Cellular Systems

December 21, 2004
Laurie E. Locascio, Wyatt N. Vreeland, Andreas Jahn, Michael Gaitan
The discovery that phospholipids spontaneously form fluid-filled bubbles when exposed to aqueous solution was first made by Alec Bangham in the early 1960's while studying the effects of phospholipids on blood clotting in the Babraham Institute in England

Controlled Vesicle Self-Assembly in Continuous Two Phase Flow Microfluidic Channels

June 10, 2004
Andreas Jahn, Wyatt N. Vreeland, Laurie E. Locascio, Michael Gaitan
The spontaneous self-assembly of phospholipids into liposomes in aqueous solution results in the encapsulation of reagents into quantized packets in a manner that mimics cellular life-processes. Since their discovery in 1965, liposomes have been used in a

Chiral Separations by Temperature Gradient Focusing

February 1, 2004
K M. Balss, Wyatt N. Vreeland, Karen W. Phinney, Michael J. Tarlov, David J. Ross
Temperature gradient focusing (TGF) involves application of a temperature gradient across a microchannel or capillary. With an appropriate buffer, the temperature gradient creates a gradient in both the electric field and the electrophoretic velocity
