Microfluidics

Dissecting gene expressions in nucleus versus cytoplasm with single-cell resolution

Single-cell ITP for physical fractionation of cytoplasmic versus nuclear nucleic acids (NAs)

Single-cell analyses have become powerful tools to explore the heterogeneity of cell populations such as tumours and developing embryos. Microfluidics have significantly contributed to this field, particularly to reduce the cost and improve the throughput of single-cell RNA sequencing and DNA sequencing.

New Tools, New Possibilities – 3D Printing for Lab-on-a-Chip

Diagnostic technologies rely heavily on our tools. If we want new possibilities, we need to create new tools. In this video from TED TalksGreg Nordin speaks about his research in new breakthrough methods for microfluidic devices. He considered 3D printing but found that commercial printers and materials could not fabricate feature sizes that are in the truly microfluidic regime (<100 μm).

New Integrated Systems in Microfluidics

The University of Hertfordshire’s Microfluidics & Microengineering Research Group produces microfluidics-enabled systems extending from concept, through design to development realisation and testing. There is a subtle balance of science and engineering involved in the research and the group is structured to enable this balance. We spoke to Loïc Coudron, a research fellow at the University of Hertfordshire,  about his current research in microfluidic equipment.
