Cursusdoelen
To obtain understanding of the working principles, the basic elements and most relevant applications of Lab on a Chip.
 
Inhoud
The Lab on a Chip course will take the student to the world of miniaturised systems used in various fields of chemistry and life sciences. A "Lab-on-a-Chip" consists of electrical, fluidic, and optical functions integrated in a microsystem, and has applications in (bio)chemical and medical fields.
The core of the lab-on-a-chip system is a microfluidic channel structure, through which nanoliter amounts of liquids with dissolved molecules are propelled by hydraulic, electrokinetic or surface forces. The fluidic structures are machined in materials like fused silica, borofloat glass, or polymers.
 
The course will treat all relevant aspects of such microsystems in a number of problem-based learning sessions. Microfluidic theoretical principles are treated with emphasis on the transport of liquid and dissolved molecules in microsystems and molecular separation. This is followed by an introduction in aspects of microfabrication. Electrochemical and optical detection methods are subsequently treated. Then the manipulation of cells in microfluidic systems is considered. The course finishes with a written exam and a written case study. The course is aimed at MSc students of Biomedical Engineering, Electrical Engineering, Nanotechnology, Chemical Engineering, Mechanical Engineering or Applied Physics.
