Rapid determination of vitamin B12 concentration with a chemiluminescence lab on a chip
This paper reports a novel method for the rapid determination of vitamin B12 concentration in a continuous-flow lab-on-a-chip system. This new method is based on luminol-peroxide chemiluminescence (CL) assays for the ...
Double spiral detection channel for on-chip chemiluminescence detection
In this paper, we introduced a three-layered microchip that consists of a double spiral channel design for chemiluminescence (CL) detection and a passive micromixer to facilitate the mixing of reagents. The design with two ...
Ferrofluid plug as valve and actuator for whole-cell PCR on chip
Ferrofluid plug was first used as valve and actuator to circumvent the evaporation of aqueous fluid in LOC. Moreover, this dynamic plug catered for aqueous fluid expansion during its heating in the microchannel. Whole-cell ...
Nested PCR in magnetically actuated circular closed-loop PCR microchip system
We demonstrate a new and sensitive amplification technique (referred to as Nested Polymerase Chain Reaction; nPCR). It based on a magnetically actuated circular closed-loop PCR microchip system. nPCR involves the use of ...
Passive micromixer for luminol-peroxide chemiluminescence detection
This paper reports a microchip with an integrated passive micromixer based on chaotic advection. The micromixer with staggered herringbone structures was used for luminol-peroxide chemiluminescence detection. The micromixer ...
Sample loading and retrieval by centrifugation in a closed-loop PCR microchip
We report on a novel concept of sample loading for microfluidic devices using a benchtop centrifuge and a magnetically actuated circular closed-loop PCR microchip as a model system. The PCR mixture and the ferrofluid were ...
