Microfluidic methods for bead-based assays on-chip

In this project a microfluidic manipulation method will be developed to introduce, incubate, elute and analyse microbeads for cytokine detection in low volumes. The main working tasks of the advertised subproject are to

  • develop a bead manipulation unit based on acoustic trapping,
  • integrate the bead manipulations method with organ models developed by other project partners, and
  • perform and characterise immunoassays on-chip using the developed platform.
