185 Electrokinetics for Sample Preparation

Monday, November 14, 2016: 1:00 PM - 3:00 PM
Embarcadero (Parc 55 San Francisco)
Description:
Sample preparation is the link connecting the real-world with microfluidic analysis. For example, electrodes have been used to induce electrothermal flows for on-chip single cell analysis and electrochemical assay development. Partially overlooked in the past years, robust on-chip sample preparation must be further developed to enable practical applications such as environmental monitoring and point-of-care clinical diagnostics. This session is aimed at presenting how electrokinetic technology, including electrophoresis, electroosmosis, diffussiophoresis, etc., is enhancing sample preparation. Modeling and experimental contributions are welcome. In the submission clearly state the problem, motivation, and results.
