Abstract



Microfluidic Devices – Key Technologies to Enable Real-Time Patient Monitoring and Treatment

Martyn Boutelle, Professor, Imperial College London

Clinical practice is beginning to wake upto the potential of real-time molecular information from venerable tissue as a means to understand the progression in the tissue of injury or disease. Such patterns of molecular changes, particularly when combined with paternal of physical of electrical signatures, offer the exciting possibility of allowing clinicians to guide therapy on an individualized basis in real time. In this presentation I will describe the development of 3D printed microfluidic devices connected to wireless electronics for transplant organ and patient monitoring. Tissue sampling is via integrated microdialysis probes. Concentrations of important biomarkers are measured using microscale amperometric biosensors (energy metabolites, and excitatory neurotransmitters) and ion-selective electrodes (ISE) for tissue ionic balance. Detailed patterns of ionic responses can be revealed using a high density ISE array within the flow stream. High time resolutions can be achieved using a novel droplet based microfluidic system. The presentation with describe the design and optimization challenges and include clinical examples from our recent work.
