Menno Prins's Biography

Menno Prins, Professor, Eindhoven University of Technology

Menno has been with Philips Research since 1995. He received an MSc degree in 'Physique et Applications' from Université Paris XI, and an Honours MSc degree in Applied Physics from Delft University of Technology. He had a six-month spell working at the Indian Institute of Science in Bangalore and gained his PhD in Experimental Physics at Nijmegen University.

At Philips Research, he is currently working in the field of Healthcare Devices and Molecular Diagnostics, where he is investigating lab-on-a-chip biosensors.

Menno is a part-time professor at the Eindhoven University of Technology (TU/e) leading the Molecular Biosensors group for Medical Diagnostics.

In this presentation, I will review the use of magnetic particles actuated by magnetic fields to realize integrated lab-on-chip diagnostic devices wherein several assay process steps are combined, e.g. to mix fluids, capture analytes, concentrate analytes, transfer analytes, label analytes, and perform stringency and washing steps. I will focus on realizations within the concept of stationary microfluidics, in which fluid manipulation is minimized and the assay steps are essentially effectuated by magnetic particles and magnetic forces. I will discuss efforts to combine and integrate different magnetically actuated assay steps, with the vision that it will become possible in the future to realize integrated, cost-effective and easy to use stationary-fluidic biosensing systems in which all assay process steps are controlled and optimized by magnetic forces.
