The focus of this research project is the development of a prefilled MEMS syringe for painless injection of a suspension of fine drug powder and biocompatible liquid through an array of hollow microneedles into the epidermis under the stratum corneum.
In this project, using solely capillary forces to flow, microscale fluid flow behavior will be characterized with respect to surface properties of the substrate, fluid properties, and the geometries of the microfluidic systems.
The goal of this project is the development of a disposable continuous in-vitro minimal invasive micro glucose monitor.
The focus of this project is harnessing selection-based cell adhesions to perform cell separation in microstructured fluidic channels. Cell separation refers to the capture and concentration of cells and even to fractionating different cell types from a continuously flowing sample in a manner suited to the requirements of micro-assay systems.
