Abstract

This proposal is about the realization of a portable, low-cost, plastic based, disposable, high automated lab-on-achip capable of performing biochemical analyses in biological fluids for being applicable in point of care systems using fluids acoustic microagitation and using absorbance and fluorescence detection techniques. The lab-on-a-chip is composed by two dies: the microfluidic die and the detection die. The microfluidic die includes the microchannels and the reaction chambers. It also should include on-chip storage of reagents/buffers/controls such that the lab-on-a-chip will be a self-contained unit. It is fabricated using a photoplastic material (SU-8).
