Real-time precise microfluidic droplets label-sequencing

"Droplets microfluidics is broadening the range of Lab on a Chip solutions that, however, still suffer from the lack of an adequate level of integration of optical detection and sensors. In fact, droplets are currently monitored by imaging techniques, mostly limited by time-consuming data post-processing...

Self-propelled microrobot with microfluidics

Self-propulsion robot powered by a microfluidic pump

The modularity of microfluidics enables microfabricated microfluidic chips to be either used as standalone systems or integrated as subsystems into more complex systems. In this week's research highlight, we will introduce one of these advanced technologies that employs a microfluidic pump for Marangoni propulsion in...

Droplet Microfluidics with Matrix-Assisted Laser Desorption/Ionization-Mass Spectrometry (MALDI)-MSDetection

"Microfluidic and mass spectrometry (MS) methods are widely used to sample and probe the chemical composition of biological systems to elucidate chemical correlates of their healthy and disease states. Though matrix-assisted laser desorption/ionization-mass spectrometry (MALDI)-MS has been hyphenated to droplet microfluidics for offline analyses, the...
