Latest advances in microfluidic flow control and microfabrication technologies for point-of-care and organ-on-a-chip applications.

Monday 23 October 2017 - 15.45-16.05 h

In this talk Monica Brivio, strategic R&D Manager at Micronit, will focus on recent advances in flow control, including membrane-based valves realised via adhesive-free techniques, combining a range of thermoplastic and elastomeric materials. It will also include electrostatic triggered capillary burst valves enabling sequential capillary flow in fully autonomous point-of-care testing (POCT) devices.

Integration techniques, particularly relevant to the organ-on-a-chip (OOC) field, integrating membranes and sensing elements for transepithelial electrical resistance (TEER) and oxygen sensing will also be illustrated. Finally, commercially and scientifically relevant examples will be presented to illustrate the applicability of the developed technologies.
