Integrated Microfluidic Universal Sample Preparation and Pre-concentration (USP) Module for Parallel Diagnostics of Infectious Diseases (HIV, TB and Malaria)

Luke Lee of the University of California, Berkeley in the U.S. proposes to develop a microfluidic sample preparation module using electrical and physical methods that will be compatible with different sample inputs and downstream analytical techniques to provide both plasma and cellular biomarkers for the parallel diagnoses of infectious diseases such as HIV, tuberculosis, and malaria. The device will not require external reagents, will have low power consumption, and can be operated on-site with minimal training.
