Microfluidics for bioanalytical research : transitioning into point-of-care diagnostics
In this dissertation, three different microfluidic devices with bioanalytical applications are presented. From chapter to chapter, the bioanalytical focus will gradually become the development of a point-of-care sensor ...
Detecting single-particle insulating collisions in microfluidics as a function of flow rate
This work presents the first electrochemical observation of single polystyrene microbead collisions with an electrode within a microchannel. We have observed that detecting single microbead collisions is facile with this ...
Bipolar electrochemistry for enrichment, separations, and membraneless electrochemically mediated desalination
Developments in bipolar electrochemistry for the simultaneous separation and enrichment of charged species and membraneless electrochemically mediated desalination (EMD) are presented. Each of these techniques requires an ...
Synthesis of model nanoparticle-peptide conjugates and development of an electrochemical strategy to regulate microdroplet pH in microfluidics
Described herein is the synthesis and characterization of model nanoparticle (NP)-peptide conjugates intended for biorecognition applications. Also described is the development of an electrochemical strategy for regulating ...
Electrochemically generating electric field gradients in the absence of buffer for membrane-free separations
The work described herein focuses on modulating the electric field within microelectrochemical devices for electrokinetic separations. Specifically, two new electrochemical approaches were investigated for forming electric ...
