microfluidics

A technology based on geometrically constrained minute volume transport through channels in a glass or plastic chip. The “micro-“ in microfluidics refers to small volumes (nL, pL, fL), small size, low energy consumption, or physical effects of the micro domain.

Speaking about it, corresponding author of the study, said, aACoeThis new microfluidics chip lets us separate cancer cells from whole blood or minimally-diluted blood," adding, "While devices for detecting cancer cells circulating in the blood are becoming available, most are relatively expensive and are out of reach of many research labs or hospitals.
"This approach requires the formation and functionalisation of double emulsion microcapsules, which we have been producing with the help of microfluidics. We have been using a Dolomite Microfluidics system since 2014, and find that microfluidics offers much better control of particle size and composition than traditional emulsification polymerisation techniques, simplifying the investigation and optimisation of particle properties," added De Souza.
They are especially valuable for microfluidics manufacturers that develop products for low to medium volumes (up to tens of thousands per year), although testing protocols should be of interest to high-volume manufacturers as well.
Microfluidics company Micronics Inc reported on Monday the receipt of clearance from the US Food and Drug Administration for the Micronics PanNAT STEC Test for the detection of Shiga toxin-producing E.
Maryland Heights, MO, May 04, 2017 --(PR.com)-- The field of microfluidics uses microfabrication to create miniaturized devices to handle fluids.
After the first student dropped out and after suffering from chip architectural ideas that couldn't be made to work, we determined that the maligned bolus approach was actually a better basis for programmable microfluidics. We simply lacked a way to implement it!
