Applications in Microfluidics

09:00

Elisabeth VerpoorteKeynote Presentation

Monitoring Cell and Tissue Culture in Microfabricated Systems
Elisabeth Verpoorte, Professor of Analytical Chemistry and Pharmaceutical Analysis, University of Groningen, Netherlands

Microfluidic technologies are enabling more sophisticated experimentation with cells and tissue. This presentation will consider monitoring of chemical parameters such as metabolites, dissolved oxygen and pH in small-volume (microliter or less) cell and tissue culture in microfluidic systems.

09:30

Microfluidic Devices for Long-Term 3D Cell Culture and Anticancer Drug Activity Evaluation
Zbigniew Brzozka, Professor, Warsaw University of Technology, Poland

The presentation will concern applications of microfluidic devices for cell culture and testing. Long-term two-dimensional and three-dimensional cell culture on-chip for anticancer drugs activity evaluation and photodynamic therapy testing will be discussed.

10:00

Tubeless Microfluidic Systems for Personalized Chemotherapy
Albert Folch, Associate Professor of Bioengineering, University of Washington, United States of America

Presently, oncologists do not directly assess tumor chemosensitivity prior to choosing a chemotherapeutic regimen, resulting in inefficient therapies. Here we show a multiplexed microfluidic assay that utilizes intact tumor tissue and could be used to rapidly predict tumor chemosensitivity to a large panel of drugs prior to initiation of therapy.

Paper-based Microfluidics: Something Old + Something New
Andrew Steckl, Ohio Eminent Scholar/Gieringer Professor, University Of Cincinnati, United States of America

Paper-based microfluidic lab-on-chip devices using capillary flow provide an attractive alternative to conventional microfluidic devices in resource-poor and point-of-care environments. This presentation reviews this rapidly expanding field for low cost and simple to use bio/medical and other applications.

Technology Spotlight:
Case Study “Heart Check” and Manufacturing with Different Technologies for Medical Consumable Devices for Analytic and Diagnostics – Single Sourced
Harald Denz, MD & CEO,

This talk will be about a heart test instrument to be used at home by the patient, the results will be transmitted to the family doctor via GPRS. The cooperation with the customer was to support the development of the technical implementation of LOC plastic components. z-microsystems itself develops LOC-technologies which allow to manufacture components with increasingly finer and thinner structures.

Integrated Inertial Pump for Micro-fluidic Application
Alexander Govyadinov, Senior Technologist, HP Incorporated, United States of America

The low-cost integrated inertial micro-pump is investigated. CFD model and variety of tested microfluidic geometries with pump’s array demonstrated feasibility of the inertial micro-pump technology. Potential applications of small form-factor integrated micro-fluidic pumps for Lab-on-Chip application is discussed.


Applications of Lab-on-a-Chip

Jon CooperKeynote Presentation

Using Phononic Crystals to Shape Complex Fluid Flows
Jon Cooper, Professor, University of Glasgow, United Kingdom

We have developed phononic crystals that shape acoustic fields as "acoustic holograms", enabling the control of fluid flows. We demonstrate the technology in biomedical diagnostics to enable PCR, cell lysis and sample manipulation - with applications in rapid diagnostic tests.

15:15

Coffee Break & Networking in Exhibition Hall

16:00

Isotachophoresis in Microchannels: Beyond Separation of Analytes
Steffen Hardt, Professor, University of Technology Darmstadt, Germany

We show that microchannel isotachophoresis (ITP) displays a rich variety of interesting physical phenomena that may be utilized for a much broader scope of applications than only the separation of analytes. We demonstrate this by a number of examples, including ITP-based “digital microfluidics” and particle separation at ITP transition zones.

16:30

Biophotonic Lab on a Chip for Simultaneous Cell Retention and Monitoring
Xavier Muñoz, Senior Researcher, Microelectronics Institute of Barcelona (IMB-CNM), Spain

A biophotonic lab on a chip consisting on twin chambers and size-exclusion micofilters for real time cell retention and monitoring will be presented. As a proof of concept, they have been used for separate mixtures E-coli and S. cerevisiae and for pH monitoring of VSMC cultures.

17:00

High Throughput Fluorescence Detection of Phytoplankton using an Optofluidic Biosensor
Nastaran Hashemi, Assistant Professor, Iowa State University, United States of America

We have deigned an optofluidic biosensor for high throughput characterization of phytoplankton by their intrinsic fluorescence and light scatter. Phytoplankton with a wide range of sizes and shapes are successfully detected using this approach.

Diagnostics and Medical Approaches

09:00

Ali KhademhosseiniKeynote Presentation

Microengineered Hydrogels for Stem Cell Bioengineering and Tissue Regeneration
Ali Khademhosseini, Professor, Harvard Medical School, United States of America

I will present our work in controlling the microscale architecture of hydrogels using microfluidics and lithographic apporaches for regenerative medicine applications.

Cartridge Based Magnetic Immunodiagnostic Platform for Sensitive Point-of-care Testing (POCT) of Biomarkers and Viral Pathogens
Raiah Gottheil, Researcher, NMI , Germany

A microfluidic platform for sensitive and quantitative detection of diagnostic targets suitable for POCT is reported. Targets are detected through a magnetic bead fluorescence immunoassay. The beads constitute the solid phase for immobilization of capture molecules additionally are meant for mixing and incubation with various assay reagents. The actuation scheme allows periphery to be minimized. Evaluation done using an Inlterleukin-8 assay yielded detection limits of 1.25 pM.

10:00

Will Micro Total Analysis Systems (µTAS) Become Consumer Products?
Benjamin Roussel, Business Unit Manager of the Microfluidic & Medical Technologies (MedTech), Yole Développement, France

The concept of self-conducted diagnostic tests, administered by patients everywhere, is slowly becoming a reality. This presentation underlines the potential of Micro total analysis Systems to serve the consumer-driven Healthcare of tomorrow.

Advances Micro and Nanofluidics

11:15

Optothermal Actuation of Nanofluidic DNA Chips
Anders Kristensen, Associate Professor, Technical University of Denmark, Denmark

A nanoimprinted polymer chip  with a thin near-infrared absorber layer is used to create local hot-spots by absorption of an infrared laser beam. Large temperature at gradients at the hot-spot yields thermophoretic forces, which are used to manipulate and stretch individual DNA molecules confined in nanochannels.

11:45

Improving Microfluidic Interfacing by Using SideConnect Technology
Mark Olde Riekerink, Project Manager, Micronit Microfluidics, Netherlands

Micronit is developing a new type of fluidic connection, in addition to its currently standardized Fluidic Connect Pro platform. The SideConnect technology simplifies the microfluidic chip/cartridge design and thus reduces product costs. With no access holes in the top layer, this technology can be implemented either in a 2D (in-plane) or a 3D (out-of-plane) configuration.
