A particle-based microfluidic molecular separation (PMMS) system was developed which integrates SERS substrate to separate complicate molecule mixture followed by in situ SERS detection. The platform consists of an automatic microfluidic control system to precisely control the sample and reagent flow. The miniaturized PMMS–SERS system enables an easy-to-use and sensitive analyte detection, which could be … Read more
A localized surface plasmon resonance (LSPR) sensor enables continuous and dynamic inflammatory biomarker detection, we utilized to perform label-free molecule sensing. The small LSPR sensing mechanism simplifies optical setup and can be easily integrated with a microfluidic device. An automated microfluidic control system was developed to control reagent guiding and switching in the immunoassay with … Read more
This paper discusses approaches to facilitate the use of microfluidics by non-experts in clinical settings outside of the laboratory. The researchers demonstrate a flexible microfluidic platform that can be coupled to microfluidic biosensors and used in conjunction with clinical microdialysis. The precision and control offered by this set-up enables the use of microfluidics by non-experts … Read more
