Recent progress on wearable point-of-care devices for ocular systems
Bubbles in microfluidics: an all-purpose tool for micromanipulation
We critically review the extensive applications and the frontline advances of bubbles in microfluidics for manipulation.
Fundamentals of integrated ferrohydrodynamic cell separation in circulating tumor cells isolation
Microfluidic ultrafine particle dosimeter using an electrical detection method with a machine-learning-aided algorithm for real-time monitoring of particle density and size distribution
A compact, cost-efficient airborne ultrafine particle (UFP) dosimeter that can monitor essential parameters required for accurate UFP dosimetry.
Ultraviolet-induced in situ gold nanoparticles for point-of-care testing of infectious diseases in loop-mediated isothermal amplification
The present study investigated ultraviolet-induced in situ gold nanoparticles (AuNPs) coupled with LAMP for the point-of-care testing (POCT) of two major infectious pathogens, namely, Coronavirus (COVID-19) and Enterococcus faecium (E. faecium spp.).
Programmable multilayer printing of a mechanically-tunable 3D hydrogel co-culture system for high-throughput investigation of complex cellular behavior
Programmable multilayer printing is utilized to develop a 3D hydrogel co-culture system, consisting of a microgel array and hydrogel overlay with independently controlled mechanical properties and concurrent generation of mechanical gradients.
Cryopreservable arrays of paper-based 3D tumor models for high throughput drug screening
Schematic representation of the methodology developed for creating cryopreservable high throughput paper-based arrays of 3D tumor models for drug screening applications.
Self-aligned sequential lateral field non-uniformities over channel depth for high throughput dielectrophoretic cell deflection
Self-aligned sequential lateral field non-uniformities extending uniformly over the sample channel depth are fabricated using a single lithography step for enabling phenotype-specific dielectrophoretic separation of cells.
Origami paper-based sample preconcentration using sequentially driven ion concentration polarization
To overcome the hurdles of the ICP-based preconcentrator (i.e., instability and low efficiency) under physiological conditions, we proposed a novel approach by using a sequentially driven ICP process, showing a 13-fold preconcentration factor (PF) in human serum.
