Microfluidic Immiscible Phase Barrier: Simplified Sample Preparation for Point-of-Care Diagnostics in the Developing World

David Beebe and researchers at the University of Wisconsin in the U.S. propose to develop a "universal" sample purification platform that readily adapts to various upstream collection components and utilizes an immiscible phase (e.g. oil, wax) barrier to produce a "clean" sample for output to downstream amplification and detection components.
