Chip-Scale Gas Chromatography
(Virginia Tech, 2015-09-04)
Instrument miniaturization is led by the desire to perform rapid diagnosis in remote areas with high throughput and low cost. In addition, miniaturized instruments hold the promise of consuming small sample volumes and are ...
Microfluidic Columns with Nanotechnology-Enabled Stationary Phases for Gas Chromatography
(Virginia Tech, 2015-03-12)
Advances in micro-electro-mechanical-systems (MEMS) along with nanotechnology based methods have enabled the miniaturization of analytical chemistry instrumentation. The broader aim is to provide a portable, low-cost, and ...
3-D Bio-inspired Microenvironments for In Vitro Cell Migration
(Virginia Tech, 2015-10-21)
Cancer metastasis is the leading cause of death related to cancer diseases. Once the cancer cells depart the primary tumor site and enter the blood circulation, they spread through the body and will likely initiate a new ...
Bioimpedance spectroscopy of breast cancer cells: A microsystems approach
(Virginia Tech, 2015-11-04)
Bioimpedance presents a versatile, label-free means of monitoring biological cells and their responses to physical, chemical and biological stimuli. Breast cancer is the second most common type of cancer among women in the ...
