Novel Technique to Build Pneumatic Microvalves into 2-D and 3-D Microfluidic Devices

Researchers at the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) have added yet another innovation—miniature valves—to their ever-growing collection of inexpensive, easy-to-manufacture and highly efficient microfluidic devices made from plastic films and double-sided tape. [More]
New Microfluidic Method Finds That Aspirin May Not be Effective in All Patients with Narrowed Arteries

New Microfluidic Method Finds That Aspirin May Not be Effective in All Patients with Narrowed Arteries

A new microfluidic method for evaluating drugs commonly used for preventing heart attacks has found that while aspirin can prevent dangerous blood clots in some at-risk patients, it may not be effective in all patients with narrowed arteries. The study, which involved 14 human subjects, used a device that simulated blood flowing through narrowed coronary arteries to assess effects of anti-clotting drugs. [More]

Novel Heat-Based Technique to Count and Measure Size of Microscopic Particles

Novel Heat-Based Technique to Count and Measure Size of Microscopic Particles

Researchers have developed a new heat-based technique for counting and measuring the size of microscopic particles. The technique is less expensive than light-based techniques and can be used on a wider array of materials than electricity-based techniques. The research was performed by faculty at North Carolina State University, the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill and Marquette University. [More]
