Emmanuel Delamarche's Biography

Emmanuel Delamarche, Senior Manager, Spiden AG

Dr. Delamarche is currently a Senior Manager at Spiden AG, a Swiss company developing medical technologies. Prior to this, Dr. Delamarche was leading activities on Precision Diagnostics at IBM Research - Zurich where his main projects dealt with the development of portable and precise diagnostic devices and of a non-contact scanning microfluidic probe for analyzing biological interfaces.

He is also a Lecturer at ETH Zurich and a contributor to scientific panels for governmental agencies and research institutions. He published over 200 papers and proceedings, and is co-inventor on more than 70 patent families. He has received numerous awards from IBM, was named “Master Inventor” by IBM, and received the Werner prize of the Swiss Chemical Society in 2006 and Langmuir Lecture Award in 2020 from the American Chemical Society. Dr. Delamarche studied chemistry and received a degree in supramolecular chemistry in 1992 from the University Paul Sabatier of Toulouse in France and his Ph.D. in biochemistry in 1995 from the University of Zurich.

Diagnostics are ubiquitous in healthcare because they support prevention, diagnosis and treatment of diseases. Specifically, point-of-care (POC) diagnostics are particularly attractive for identifying diseases near patients, quickly, and in many settings and scenarios. In the context of infectious diseases, there is clearly an urgent need for bringing POC diagnostics to a next level in terms of speed and precision. In this presentation, I will detail some of the former work I did, while at IBM, on new concepts for encoding flow at the microscale using capillary phenomena, implementing highly miniaturized assays, monitoring flow, and making programmable capillary circuits. Specifically, I will provide an update on “self-coalescence modules” and on how these microfluidic elements can be used to implement fast biochemical reactions involving nanoliter volumes and parallel reactions in just a few square millimeters.
