Microelectronics Meets Microfluidics: Hybrid Integration of Sensors in Microfluidic Devices



November 29, 2012

Holger Becker, CSO, Microfluidic ChipShop GmbH

In addition to the well established optical detection methods, a recent development in lab-on-a-chip technology is the increased use of sensor technology for the detection of analytes in a microfluidic system. These sensors can range from relatively simple electrochemical sensors to electronically read-out microarrays or highly integrated nano-electrode sensors with on-chip signal processing capabilities. These sensors require innovative technological solutions for their integration into a microfluidic cartridge. We will present solutions for such integrated systems for the detection of biomarkers, proteins and nucleic acids for applications in rapid infectious disease identification or drug efficacy monitoring.
