Portable microfluidic platform for biomarker sensing

Abstract "Biomarker detection and bulk refractive index sensing are important across multiple industries ranging from early medical diagnosis to chemical process quality control. The bulky size, high cost, and complex architecture of existing refractive index and biomarker sensing technologies limit their use to highly skilled environments...

microfluidic chip to study human trophoblast invasion during implantation

A microenigneered system models multicellular events in early pregnancy

The complex process of human pregnancy begins with the crucial step of embryo implantation. This involves the intricate interaction between the embryo's trophoblast cells and the maternal endometrium. A groundbreaking study published in Nature Communications has developed an advanced microfluidic chip, termed "implantation-on-a-chip", to simulate...
