Biomedical Micro Nanofluidics
University of Michigan, MI, USA
This presentation will give an overview of efforts in our laboratory to develop microfluidic systems to control cell microenvironments and to perform high precision biochemical measurements. Microfluidic technologies to be discussed include self-switching microfluidic transistor circuitry, “reagent” microfluidics that enable microscale stable spatial fluidic patterning without any channels, and fracture fabrication of tunable nanochannels. Specific biomedical applications that will be discussed include aqueous two phase system micro-patterning, organs-on-a-chip, chromatin analysis, and protein biomarker analysis.
