Project summary

Microfabricated device coupled with electrochemical detection has become an enabling technology for point-of-care and personalized diagnostics due to its capabilities of simplicity, portability, low cost and their performance of multiplexed and quantitative measurements, ideally in a high-troughput format.

In this project, we aim to fabricate multiplexed devices containing microelectrodes with different planar and three-dimensional (3D) geometries, which integrates all these capabilities in one device. These devices will be tested to analyze different molecular biomarkers (i.e, DNA, microRNA, proteins, etc) in biological/clinical samples.  

Students will achieve hands on experience in the design, fabrication and application of the microfluidic devices and electrochemical microbiosensors.
