"lab on a chip" device using nanochannels and electrophoresis. you can see bulk DNA on the right, an empty channel on the left. as I switch on the electric voltage you can see single DNA molecules moving across 80nm channels by electrophoretic migration.
Lab on a chip has found many applications in biological and chemical analysis. Because these labs on chips involve handling of fluids at the microscale, surface tension profoundly affects the behavior and performance of these systems.
James Castracane, head of the College of Nanoscale Science and Engineering (CNSE), University of Albany-State University New York (SUNY) Nanobiosciences Constellation and Professor of Nanoscience, introduces a "lab on a chip" and its uses in nanobioscience technology.
Researchers at Duke University foresee devices no bigger than a wristwatch replacing the table-top sized machinery now used for monitoring enzymes in the bloodstream or measuring harmful chemicals in the environment.
A team of Brigham Young University engineers and chemists has created an inexpensive silicon microchip that reliably detects viruses, even at low concentrations. It's a step forward in the movement to make a "lab on a chip."
