Absorption detection of enzymatic reaction using optical microfluidics based intermittent flow microreactor systemPublication Year: 2006, Page(s):137 - 143
The advantages of integrating microfluidics into photonics-based biosensing for fabricating microreactor type lab-on-a-chip devices carries a lot of advantages, such as smaller sample volume handling, controlled drug delivery and high throughput diagnosis, which is useful for in situ medical diagnosis and point-of-care (POC) testing. A hybrid integrated optical microfluidic system has been develop... View full abstract»
Dynamics of rotating paramagnetic particles simulated by lattice Boltzmann and particle dynamics methodsPublication Year: 2006, Page(s):145 - 150
Novel biochemical sensors consisting of rotating chains of microscale paramagnetic particles have been proposed that would enable convenient, sensitive analyte detection. Predicting the dynamics of these particles is required to optimise their design. The results of lattice Boltzmann (LB) and particle dynamics (PD) simulations are reported, where the LB approach provides a verified solution of the... View full abstract»
