Amy Drexelius's Biography

Amy Drexelius, PhD Candidate, University of Cincinnati

Amy Drexelius is currently a biomedical engineering PhD student working at the University of Cincinnati under her supervisor Dr. Jason Heikenfeld. Her current work is focused on creating preconcentration devices which will allow extremely dilute analyte concentrations to be detected for biofluid sensing. She has a bachelor's degree in mechanical engineering and experience as a manufacturing engineer at DRT Mfg. Co. She also worked in the Micro and Nano Manufacturing Laboratory as an undergraduate researcher, during which she worked on Electrochemical Additive Manufacturing simulations.

If there were a simple and passive technique, that would downshift the range of detection of all your sensors and analytes by 10-100X, what value would you place on such a breakthrough? Presented are single step and fast membrane pre-concentration devices for applications ranging from continuous wearable biosensing (sweat, interstitial fluid) to point of care diagnostics (blood, urine, saliva), which can detect analytes present in respiratory viruses such as influenza and COVID-19.  These devices now show >10X preconcentration in minutes for analytes ranging from small molecules (e.g. cortisol) to large proteins (influenza).  Further demonstrated are techniques that allow rapid adaptation of the devices for a wide variety of sensing modalities, including those sensitive to changes in pH or salinity.
