Teodor Veres's Biography

Teodor Veres, Section Head, Bioanalytical Micro-Nano Devices, Life Sciences Division, National Research Council of Canada & McGill University

Dr. Veres is the Head of the Bioanalytical Micro-Nano Devices Section in the Life Sciences Division of the National Research Council of Canada. He holds adjunct professor positions in McGill Biomedical Engineering and Bioengineering departments and Laval University Medical School. He graduated in 1999 from the Université de Montréal with a Ph.D. in Physics. Dr. Veres has expertise in the design and fabrication of nanomaterials and their integration in microfluidic systems for applications in clinical and environmental rapid diagnostics as well as for cell and tissue engineering. Dr. Veres is leading NRC initiative aimed to the development of polymer-based fabrication of bio-microsystems and in particular lab-on-chip technologies for micro-analytical applications. He is also co-founder and co-director of the joint Health Canada-NRC Reference Centre for Rapid Diagnostic, Regulatory Sciences and Food Safety. He coauthored more than 150 papers and 25 patent applications in the field of design, fabrication and testing of polymer-based micro-systems and magnetic nano-carriers and their applications for diagnostics.

A New Generation of Centrifugal Microfluidics Platforms Using Active Electronic and Pneumatic Controls

Integration of complex bioanalytical assays in microfluidics is a considerable challenge, requiring not only precise control on fluid displacements but also development of simple and reliable microfluidic devices that are compatible with low-cost mass production. While centrifugal microfluidics is a promising platform for sample-to-answer assays, the traditional fluidic control methods based on capillary and siphon valves have many drawbacks (thigh fabrication tolerances, need for surface treatments, sensitivity to liquid properties, low-reliability, etc.). We have developed new centrifugal microfluidic platforms that offer the interesting prospect to decouple basic microfluidic functions from specific material properties, channels dimensions and fabrication tolerances, surface treatments, or on-chip active components, thus promoting integration of complex assays on simple and low-cost microfluidic cartridges. We present several novel fluidic functions that can be achieved using simple polymer-based chips without on-chip active components by combining centrifugal forces and active pumping. Examples of integrated bioanalytical assays will be discussed including DNA harvesting, pathogenic bacteria sub-typing and circulating makers sample preparation for molecular identification will be presented.
