Zdenek Slouka's Biography

Zdenek Slouka, Assistant professor, Dept. of Chemical Engineering, Institute of Chemical Technology Prague, Czech Republic

Zdenek Slouka is developing integrated microfluidic platforms for detection of nucleic acids. He holds a position of an assistant professor at the Institute of Chemical Technology in Prague in the Czech republic. He received his MSc and PhD in chemical engineering at this Institute in 2004 and 2008, respectively. His research areas include microfluidics, microfluidic fabrication technologies, electrokinetics, electrochemistry, and biosensing. He also received a two-year postdoctoral training in a biological laboratory studying the invasion of red blood cells by malaria parasites. This work was done under the supervision of Kasturi Haldar who is a professor in the Department of Biological Sciences at the University of Notre Dame.

A new low-cost (<$1) disposable polymer biochip platform, with 3-D architecture to allow easy fluid/electrical/optical connection and with integrated ion-selective membranes, will be reviewed. Electrically induced concentration and charge polarization across the ion-selective membrane is used to effect on-chip pumping, cell lysing,  analyte concentration/separation,  redox agent-insensitive electrical sensing , shear-enhanced selectivity,  pH control, nanoparticle aggregation for colorimetric and plasmonic optical sensing etc. The modular designs of the membrane components allow dynamic large-volume manufacturing of different biochip designs.  A large dynamic range(fM to mM), short assay time (30 min) and high selectivity (single mismatch) is reported for a particular turn-key nucleic acid sensing device for contagious diseases.
