Ingenious Microfluidic Device to Detect and Extract Biomolecules from Fluid Mixtures

Ingenious Microfluidic Device to Detect and Extract Biomolecules from Fluid Mixtures

Employing an ingenious microfluidic design that combines chemical and mechanical properties, a team of Harvard scientists has demonstrated a new way of detecting and extracting biomolecules from fluid mixtures. The approach requires fewer steps, uses less energy, and achieves better performance than several techniques currently in use and could lead to better technologies for medical diagnostics and chemical purification.

NOC’s Microfluidic-Based pH Sensor Progresses Through to Third Phase of International Competition

NOC’s Microfluidic-Based pH Sensor Progresses Through to Third Phase of International Competition

An innovative pH sensor developed by scientists and engineers at the National Oceanography Centre (NOC) has progressed through to the third phase of a four-part international competition in the USA. The prestigious Wendy Schmidt Ocean Health XPRIZE was launched in September 2013 to find a new pH sensor to measure the ocean’s acidity. There is a total prize fund of (US) $2million and the competition has attracted a wide range of entrants from oceanographic institutes and technology companies from around the world. [More]
