Liquid metal enabled microfluidics
This review discusses the opportunities provided by gallium liquid metal alloys for making various microfluidic components.
Mobile microrobots for bioengineering applications
Untethered micron-scale mobile robots can navigate and non-invasively perform specific tasks inside unprecedented and hard-to-reach inner human body sites and inside enclosed organ-on-a-chip microfluidic devices with live cells.
Towards next-generation label-free biosensors: recent advances in whispering gallery mode sensors
We review recent advances achieved in the field of optical whispering gallery mode biosensors. We discuss major challenges that these label-free sensors are faced with on their way towards future real-world applications and introduce different approaches suggested to overcome these issues. We furthermore highlight their potential future applications.
Microchip-based single-cell functional proteomics for biomedical applications
Cellular heterogeneity has been widely recognized but only recently have single cell tools become available that allow characterizing heterogeneity at the genomic and proteomic levels.
