Technical Name Infectious Disease Diagnosis and Water Quality Monitoring Using Nanomaterials Immobilized Paper and a Flow Controllable Microfluidic Device
Project Operator National Taiwan University
Project Host 陳建甫
Summary Here we present a portable microfluidic device that can perform immunoassay for infectious disease diagnosis or detect heavy metal ions in water samples. The device is composed of two major components: nanomaterials modified paper-based detection platform and semi-automated flow manipulator. A reusable 3D-printed device is used to hold a disposable detection pad that modified with functional nanomaterials for water quality monitoring or antibodies for disease diagnosis. Besides, the use of spring-containing 3D-printed syringes manipulates a large-volume sample without manual actuation. Meanwhile, by controlling the flow rate via the linked flow regulator at the syringe outlet, solutions can react stably with the paper platform, which provides detection and pre-concentration effects.
Technical Film
Scientific Breakthrough Numerous effective techniques had been developed for infectious disease diagnosis or heavy metal ions detection in water samples. However, these methods are either time-consuming, costly or require sophisticated instruments and technicians. Here we present a portable microfluidic device that can perform immunoassay for infectious disease diagnosis or detect heavy metal ions in water samples. A reusable 3D-printed device is used to hold a disposable detection pad that modified with functional nanomaterials for water quality monitoring or antibodies for disease diagnosis. Besides, the use of spring-containing 3D-printed syringes manipulates a large-volume sample without manual actuation. Also, a flow regulator is linked to the syringe outlet to provide a steady flow rate.
Industrial Applicability Here we present a portable microfluidic device that can perform immunoassay for infectious disease diagnosis or detect heavy metal ions in water samples. To provide versability for various applications, a reusable 3D-printed device is used to hold a disposable detection pad that modified with functional nanomaterials for water quality monitoring or antibodies for disease diagnosis. We expected these techniques can be widely used for the applications of personalized medicine, precision medicine, and environmental water quality monitoring.
