Five Critical Considerations in Designing Microfluidic Cartridges

Developing microfluidic devices can be a daunting task not unlike the development of other medical or in-vitro diagnostic devices. Development typically arises from the need to miniaturize and automate existing assays for microbiological applications such as ELISA, PCR, flow cytometry, etc. This blog covers key considerations which we have found increase the chances of success […]

Five Applications Using Microfluidic Machine Learning

Microfluidics is a powerful tool on its own, but over the past years, the combination of microfluidics and Machine Learning (ML) has enabled microfluidic technologies to push into new areas and applications. Microfluidics is a fluid handling technique which takes place inside micro-channels or pathways using nano/microliter volumes. It has been used in many applications […]

Katherine Elvira Interview: How microfluidics will impact medical device diagnostics

Dr. Katherine Elvira recently spoke with Nick Allan about her work developing lab-on-a-chip (microfluidic) technologies to investigate how drugs enter human cells and to analyze how they perform when given to patients. Dr. Elvira is the Canada Research Chair in New Materials and Techniques for Health Applications and an Assistant Professor in the Department of Chemistry at […]
