Thin Film Electrophoresis – Sample Preparation in the Mail

Rosanne Guijt, Professor, Smart Sensing, Deakin University

Simplification of laboratory techniques has underpinned the development of diagnostic devices deployable outside a laboratory setting. Besides instrumental challenges, the dependence of most assays on liquid reagents has been challenging. Recently, we demonstrated a new opportunity in the field of point of care diagnostics, demonstrating the electrophoretic separation of cationic analytes in a polymer inclusion membrane in absence of liquid reagents. This concept was translated to a light-weight platform and demonstrated for the extraction of a pharmaceutical from a dried blood spot in the mail.
