Summary

The course covers the entire field of lab-on-a-chip technology, including microfluidic principles and various microfabrication approaches, and presenting concrete examples of devices for (bio)analysis, cell biology, tissue regeneration and microreactors.

Content

' Introduction to microfluidics and lab-on-a-chip technology ' origins - scaling laws ' applications

' Microfluidic principles: flow actuation; pumps; mixers; valves; etc.

' Introduction to fabrication techniques for the production of microfluidic devices, using 'cleanroom materials' such as silicon and glass, as well as polymer materials.

' Surface modification: surface passivation; and immobilization of active and/or recognition elements

' (Bio)molecule analysis: sample preparation; molecular separation; integrated devices for biomolecule analysis

' Microreactors

' Microfluidics for cell biology: engineering device for experimentation on cells; tissue regeneration and organ-on-a-chip platforms
