Development of 3D High-Quality PDMS Microfluidic Chips Based on Micromilling Technology

Development of 3D High-Quality PDMS Microfluidic Chips Based on Micromilling Technology | iBB | Scoop.it

In recent years, there has been an increased interest in exploring the potential of micro-and mesoscale milling technologies for developing cost-effective microfluidic systems with high design flexibility and a rapid microfabrication process that does not require a cleanroom. Nevertheless, the number of current studies aiming to fully understand and establish the benefits of this technique in developing high-quality microsystems with simple integrability is still limited. In a recent paper published in Micromachines, BERG-iBB researches, Ana Azevedo and Amin Javidanbardan, in collaboration, with João Pedro Conde and Virginia Chu from INESC-MN, describe a systematic methodology for developing 3D high-quality thermoplastic-based molds for microfluidic structures based on micromilling technology. The work was performed under the Marie Skłodowska-Curie grant agreement No. 812909 CODOBIO, within the Marie Skłodowska-Curie European Training Networks framework.

Microchromatography Integrated with Impedance Sensor for Bioprocess Optimization

Microchromatography Integrated with Impedance Sensor for Bioprocess Optimization | iBB | Scoop.it

The development of new scale-down models for accelerated and cost-effective biopharmaceutical process development has been receiving considerable attention in the last decade. Microfluidic systems have emerged as a particularly attractive candidate by offering miniaturization, parallelization, and allowing continuous and precise pumping and online monitoring possible. In a collaborative work, published in Journal of Chromatography A, BERG-iBB researchers Ana Azevedo and Amin Javidanbardan, together with INESC-MN researchers João Pedro Conde and Virginia Chu, propose a simple and cost-effective method for developing microfluidic chromatographic systems with integrated sensors. Fabrication and integration of microsensors, in this case, an impedance sensor, in each microcolumn provided the possibility of parallelizing experiments with separate online monitoring. The work was performed under the Marie Skłodowska-Curie grant agreement No. 812909 CODOBIO, within the Marie Skłodowska-Curie European Training Networks framework.
