Conference Paper
Most point-of-care applications require onboard storage of liquid reagents such as buffers and stains. The reliable handling and release of these reagents is key to enabling the multiple unit operations on these platforms. We present here a centrifugal buoyancy-driven release mechanism [1], where the balance between a stored aqueous reagent (to pro...

Seed germination is an important means of evaluating seed quality. In the present study, a well array for a seed germination experiment was designed and fabricated by 3D printing for the first time. The hollow cone-shaped well can hold one seed, which not only prevented the seed from falling out of the well but also ensured that part of the seed wa...
Article
In this work, cohesive thermoplastic-assisted patterning was successfully used to fabricate versatile 2D and 3D electrodes for biosensing application. The cohesive thermoplastic template was fabricated by cutter shaping to remove wet-chemical processes and UV-lithography. This low cost approach is compatible with versatile inks and substrates. Both...

Point-of-care testing (POCT) shows its significant importance in academic and social affairs (Jansen et al. 1998; Wu et al. 1999). From commercialized products to laboratory prototypes, the creative atmosphere in this research field has maintained its vitality and drawn increasing attention from researchers in related areas. There have been many in...

Retinopathy is a complication of diabetes that affects the eyes; it stems from damage to the microvasculature of the retina and eventually compromises vision. The diagnosis of retinopathy is difficult to make because there are no early symptoms or warning signs. Dysfunction of the retina’s microvascular networks is believed to be associated with in...
Article
Common producing steps for test strips is complex and fussy. In this work, we proposed a feasible binder-free test strips fabrication method to directly grow enzyme/manganese phosphate nanosheets hybrids on the screen-print electrodes (SPE). Combined with microfluidic packaging technology, the ready-made portable electrochemical biochip shows a wid...

Significant progress has been achieved using paper-based microfluidics to provide low-cost analytical tools for point-of-care testing. To satisfy minimized liquid handling and biohazard contamination risks, we have innovatively integrated microfluidic paper-based analytical devices with a standard micropipette tip to build an economical “sample-in,...
Article
Because of the growing importance of microfluidic analytical devices in chemistry, biology, and medical applications, more and more researchers are interested in utilizing this new platform to investigate their personalized samples, targets, and systems. Taking a "do-it-yourself" approach to fabricating chips of desired shapes creates a microenviro...
