  1. 1. Microfluidics system for the MOREBAC astrobiology experiment module : Design of a cubesat module

    University essay from KTH/Maskinkonstruktion (Inst.); KTH/Maskinkonstruktion (Inst.)

    Author : Aron Nygren; Alexander Ramm; [2018]
    Keywords : ;

    Abstract : In order for humans to travel further into space, spacecrafts must be able to sustain life for several months. One way to do this is to have a biological life support system containing bacteria to provide the necessary eco-system to support life. READ MORE

  2. 2. Enrichment of microparticles in droplets using acoustophoresis

    University essay from Uppsala universitet/Mikrosystemteknik

    Author : Klara Björnander Rahimi; [2018]
    Keywords : droplet microfluidics; acoustophoresis;

    Abstract : Acoustophoresis is a label free method where the acoustic radiation force is used to manipulate microparticles inside microfluidic channels. The magnitude of the force is dependent of several parameters, which include the density, speed of sound and size of the microparticles, as well as the amplitude of the pressure waves. READ MORE

  3. 3. Mixing ratio determination of binary solvent mixtures in high-pressure microfluidics

    University essay from Uppsala universitet/Mikrosystemteknik

    Author : Anton Wilson; [2017]
    Keywords : fluid; mixture; high-pressure; microfluidics;

    Abstract : The focus of this project is to find a suitable method to determine the mixing ratio inbinary fluid mixtures in continuous-flow microfluidic systems because of thedifficulties in doing so for mixtures containing compressible fluids. Refractive indexand relative static permittivity are both properties that could be suitable, but methodsmeasuring the refractive index scales badly for microsystems. READ MORE

  4. 4. Multiplexing microarrays with OSTEmer-biosticker : From polymer fabrication to bio analysis

    University essay from KTH/Skolan för elektroteknik och datavetenskap (EECS)

    Author : Sihui Chen; [2017]
    Keywords : Microfluidics; microarray; OSTEmer; biosticker; multiplexed; Mikrofluidika; mikroarray; OSTEmer; biosticker; multiplexade;

    Abstract : Microarray technology provides powerful tools in the field of biomedicalresearch because it can measure molecular interactions in a highly parallelfashion. It has uses in protein, DNA or cell research, in both discovery anddiagnostic applications. READ MORE

  5. 5. Advanced Technologies for Detection of Cryptosporidum parvum in Drinking water: capture and detection using Microfluidic devices and Imaging Flow Cytometer

    University essay from KTH/Mark- och vattenteknik (flyttat 20130630)

    Author : Safa Karimi Molan; [2017]
    Keywords : Drinking water treatment; pathogen detection; Cryptosporidium; microfluidic devices; Imaging flow Cytometry; Capture efficiency;

    Abstract : Protecting drinking water supplies from pathogens such as Cryptosporidium parvum is a major concern for water treatment plants worldwide. The sensitivity and specificity of current detection methods are largely determined by the effectiveness of the concentration and separation methods used. READ MORE
