    University essay from Lunds universitet/Fysiska institutionen; Lunds universitet/MAX IV-laboratoriet

    Author : James Wootton; [2020]
    Keywords : X-ray Spectroscopy; Microfluidics; EXAFS; XANES; Physics and Astronomy;

    Abstract : The purpose of this project was to investigate the use of microfluidics for X-ray spectroscopy at MAX IV Laboratory. A Silicon and Glass chip was produced, and its suitability for carrying samples in solution was tested. READ MORE

  2. 2. Micromachining of microfluidicsystems using a nanosecond laser : Process optimization and application

    University essay from Uppsala universitet/Mikrosystemteknik

    Author : Per Söderbäck; [2019]
    Keywords : Acoustophoresis; Acoustofluidics; Laser micromachining; Microfabrication; Particle manipulation; Ultrasound;

    Abstract : Microfluidics is a field of research that enables the manipulation of fluids in the submillimetre length scale. The technology allows the development of lab-on-a-chip devices, which are miniaturized systems for chemical and biological analysis. READ MORE

  3. 3. Design, evaluation and use of a microfluidic device for automated production of mucin microparticles for cell encapsulation for diabetes therapy

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

    Author : Bharathesh Badadamath; [2019]
    Keywords : ;

    Abstract : Droplet microfluidics has prevalent growth in a wide range of applications in the life science field. This project is one such example where we used a droplet microfluidics tool for treating diabetes mellitus type 1. Mucin hydrogels (Muc-gels) modulate the immune response driving biomaterialinduced fibrosis.[1]. READ MORE

  4. 4. Microfluidic blood fractionation and lysis towards analysis of cytokine levels in red blood cells

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