What is Microfluidics?

What is Microfluidics?

Technologies/devices capable of controlling and transferring tiny quantities of liquids to allow biological assays to be integrated and accomplished on a small scale

• Microfluidics is the science of designing and manufacturing devices and processes for manipulation of extremely small volumes of liquid

• Microfluidics promises to minimize the time and cost associated with routine biological analysis while improving reproducibility

• The first wave of micro-laboratories (referred to as µ-TAS, micro total analysis systems)

• The next generation of drug discovery tools


Generation of Concentration Gradients Generation of Concentration Gradients


Using Microfluidic Microfluidic Networks Networks

• Network of capillaries generates gradient by repeatedly splitting, mixing, and combining streams of varying concentration.

• At the end, all streams carrying different concentrations are combined in a broad channel.

• Custom gradients achieved by varying initial inlet concentrations.

Anal. Chem 73(6): 1240-1246 (2001)

What is Computational Fluid Dynamics?

What is Computational Fluid Dynamics?

• CFD provides engineers a virtual laboratory to test their ideas

• Use CFD to solve the equations governing the physics of fluid behavior

• Benefits:

- Model physical fluid phenomena that cannot be easily measured with an experiment

- Investigate designs in a more cost-effective and timely manner than experiments

Make better products, and make them faster & cheaper

Flow Injection Analysis Flow Injection Analysis

• Flow Injection Analysis (FIA) is based on the injection of a liquid sample into a moving carrier stream of a suitable liquid.

• The injected sample forms a zone, which is then

transported toward a detector that continuously records the absorbance, electrode potential, or other physical parameters as it continuously changes due to the passage of the sample material through the flow cell.

• Patent Analysis

– Based on selection of the appropriate patented portfolio to achieve the type of microfluidic processing needed for the individual application requirements

• Surface Chemistry/Materials Analysis

– It is one thing to know the specific microfluidic approach (“How it’s done”). It is also critical to assess the environment (“Where it’s done”) with respect to surface chemistries and possible interactions with materials used in the assay.

• Fluidic Modeling

• Detection

– How the results of microfluidic interactions on a lab card will be detected, interpreted, and reported.

Nanoscale Silicon Wires for Biomolecule Silicon Wires for Biomolecule Detector Detector

To detect a disease- related protein in a blood sample, a silicon wire just 10

nanometers wide is coated with

biomolecules that bind only to that protein (below). When the disease protein binds to a molecule on the wire (inset), the wire’s conductance changes, providing an instant electric signal.

Charles Lieber, Harvard University

DNA Pipeline DNA Pipeline

• To identify a particular sequence on a strand of DNA, researchers first mix the DNA with fluorescent probes that attach to that sequence. Then, on a microchip (above), an electrical field draws DNA through a channel 50 nanometers wide. An embedded optical reader detects any attached probes, identifying the sequence.
