Slipdisc: A versatile sample preparation platform
2015 (English)In: MicroTAS 2015 - 19th International Conference on Miniaturized Systems for Chemistry and Life Sciences, Chemical and Biological Microsystems Society , 2015, 1256-1258 p.Conference paper (Refereed)
We present "SlipDisc", a versatile sample preparation platform based on slipchip1 technology. The SlipDisc platform uses polycarbonate CDs and laser cut PSA instead of glass and a hand-winded mechanical clock mechanism to precisely manipulate minute amount of liquid. The innovative hand-winded mechanical "clockwork" that enables sample processing from one spot to another with defined precision. As a prof of principle of bioassay, we show HRP enzyme reacting with TMB substrate and a multilayer architecture used in manipulation of magnetic beads through an immiscible oil phase. Our long-term goal is to develop a sample-in-result-out multi-parametric bioanalytical SlipDisc platform specifically designed to need the needs at resource-limited settings for point of care molecular diagnostics.
