Lab-on-a-chip technology! Design of a micropump system for next generation healthcare

Project: Internally funded projectResearch

Description

Delays in analysing medical samples can lead to worsening of patients’ symptoms and at worst, death. The intent of this project is to create a prototype microfluidic system combined with a miniaturised pump, which can be employed with cutting edge biosensors developed at Strathclyde to analyse biological samples such as blood. These kinds of set ups commonly use syringe pumps, but integrating
our miniaturised pump makes an otherwise expensive and cumbersome system cheap and portable, rendering it hugely beneficial for application in developing countries.
