Design, test and biological validation of microfluidic systems for blood plasma separation

Sample preparation has been described as the weak link in microfluidics. In particular, plasma has to be extracted from whole blood for many analysis including protein analysis, cell-free DNA detection for prenatal diagnosis and transplant monitoring. The lack of suitable devices to perform the separation at the microscale means that Lab On Chip modules cannot be fully operated without sample preparation in a full-scale laboratory.

Development of a Flip-Chip Light Guide Package

The goal of this collaborative project with Design LED Products Ltd. is to develop a unique LED package solution to couple light efficiently into thin (
