Optical valves for lab-on-a-chip applications


Abstract:

Point of care molecular diagnostics is a very promising field with an expected exponential demanding grow in the next years, but nowadays with very few successful cases from the industrial point of view. Among the different issues to be properly solved, valve implementation into the lab-on-a-chip device still remains a challenge to be efficiently solved. In this work, photophoresis will be explored as a cheap and flexible alternative to overcome this problem.
