Enhancing the Detection Speed and Sensitivity of Exosomal microRNA by Electrokinetic Pre-concentration for Liquid Biopsy on Chip
Yong-Ak (Rafael) Song, Assistant Professor of Mechanical and Biomedical Engineering, New York University Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates

An ion concentration polarization (ICP)-based electrokinetic concentration device is used for accelerating surface hybridization reaction between exosomal microRNA (miRNA) and morpholinos (MO) as synthetic oligo capture probe at nanomolar concentration range in a microfluidic channel. Compared with standard hybridization at the same concentration, hybridization time of miRNA target on MO capture probes could be reduced from ~24 h to 30 min, an increase of detection speed by 48 times. This ICP-enhanced hybridization method not only significantly decreases detection time but makes workflow simple to use, circumventing use of qRT-PCR or other conventional enzyme-based amplification methods that can cause artifacts.

Nicole PammeConference Chair

Microfluidics In Resource-Limited Settings
Nicole Pamme, Professor in Analytical Chemistry, The University of Hull, United Kingdom

Our research centers on the study of microfluidic lab-on-a-chip devices applied to environmental analysis, biomedical research and the synthesis of smart materials. Microfluidic devices offer the possibility for in-the-field and point-of-care analysis provided the devices are portable, require only minimal external instrumentation and little power and are robust. In our group, we are investigating a simple magnetic particle based extraction method, IFAST (immiscible filtration based on surface tension), for pathogen isolation from clinical and environmental matrices in collaboration with researchers in South Africa and Kenya. Furthermore, as part of an EU-funded project (Sullied Sediments) we are developing paper microfluidic devices for on-site measurement of water quality markers such as phosphate. These are being tested by members of the general public who upload data via a custom-built up for data collection with high spatial and temporal resolution.

Glioma on Chips: Analysis of Glioma Cell Guidance and Interaction in Microfluidic-Controlled Microenvironments Enabled by Machine Learning
Amy Shen, Professor, Okinawa Institute of Science and Technology, Japan

In biosystems, chemical and physical fields established by gradients guide cell migration, which is a fundamental phenomenon underlying physiological and pathophysiological processes such as development, morphogenesis, wound healing, and cancer metastasis. Cells in the supportive tissue of the brain, glia, are electrically stimulated by the local field potentials from neuronal activities. How the electric field may influence glial cells is yet fully understood. In this talk, I will present some recent research activities in my group to probe how electric fields in the microenvironment affect the migration of glioblastoma cells by using a versatile hybrid microsystems. To accurately analyze label-free cell migration, a machine learning software, Usiigaci, is developed to automatically segment, track, and analyze single cell movement and morphological changes under phase contrast microscopy. The hybrid microfluidic tools can enable us to elucidate fundamental mechanisms in the field of the tumor biology and regenerative medicine.
