Biochemical laboratories

Biochemical Laboratories

  • Expensive Reagents

  • Small amounts of samples available

  • High levels of multiplicity required

  • Portability

  • Equipment Costs

  • Level of training

Microelectromecanichal structures mems

Microelectromecanichal structures (MEMS)

  • Bulk micromachining:

  • Single-Crystal silicon lithographically patterned then etched

  • Stress between layers

  • Surface Micromachining:

  • Additive method

  • Patterning. Max thickness 20 um

  • Limited materials

  • Stiff materials = hard to make smaller features

Soft lithography

Soft Lithography

  • With only one layer it is difficult to create active devices or moving parts

EECE 491C


Multilayer soft lithography

Multilayer Soft Lithography

  • Can bond different layers of elastomer

  • Elastomer: silicon rubber, 2 component, polymer and cross-linker

  • Each layer has excess of one of the 2

  • Upon contact layers form hermetic seal

  • Can easily create multilayer devices

  • Can create electro-magnetic devices by doping

EECE 491C


Valves

Valves

  • Fluid is introduced with pins

  • Can accept up to 300 kPa without leakage

  • Typical channel size X

  • Membrane between layers

  • Response time ~1ms

  • 1mN of force (100kPa)

  • Pneumatic activation: dense packing possible

EECE 491C


Valves and pressure

Valves and Pressure

  • Flow Layer: biological assay, fluid manipulation

  • Control Layer: actuate valves

  • Valve opening controlled by fluorescence

EECE 491C


From valves to pumps

From Valves to Pumps

  • A - on/off valve 200x100

  • B - on/off valve 30x50

  • C - peristaltic pump

  • D - grid of valves

  • E - switching valve

  • F - section of 7 layer device

  • Scale bars: 200 um

EECE 491C


Elastomeric peristaltic pump

Elastomeric Peristaltic Pump

  • 50 kPa of applied pressure

  • Channels 100 um wide and 10 um high

  • Durable

  • E coli showed 94% survival rate

EECE 491C


Valves and pumps

Valves and Pumps

  • Durable

  • Low dead volumes

  • Complete sealing even in presence of particulates

  • Easy to produce

  • Cheap

  • Rapid prototyping

  • Multiple layers possible

  • Transparent

  • Biocompatible

  • Countless applications

The multiplexor

The Multiplexor

  • Microvalves are scalable and leakproof

  • Can now have multiplexed addressing and control

  • Binary tree

  • fluid channels

  • control channels

  • Only 20 control for 1024 flow channels

EECE 491C


Memory storage design

Memory Storage Design

  • 1000 individually addressable 250pL chambers

  • Microfluidic memory storage device

  • Similar to Random Access Memory (RAM)

EECE 491C


Memory storage

Memory Storage

  • Row Multiplexor: fluid trafficking (RAM word line) refreshes compartments within a row

  • Column Multiplexor: controls vertical input-output valves for specific central compartments

  • Display Monitor

EECE 491C


Microfluidic comparator chip

Microfluidic Comparator Chip

  • Allows mixing of 2 separate reagents, unloading

  • 256 rxn chambers

EECE 491C


The experiment

The Experiment

  • Ecoli in one compartment

  • Amplex red (AR) in the other column

  • Compartments opened

  • CCP converts AR to resorufin

  • Control using GFP

EECE 491C


Controls

Controls

  • Heterogeneous mixture of E. coli expressing CCP or eGFP

  • Amplified signal dependent only on number of CCP expressing cells in individual chambers

EECE 491C


Conclusions

Conclusions

  • Ability to integrate and control many fluidic elements

  • Selective manipulation and recovery

  • Scalable devices

  • Can envision chemical and biochemical analysis

  • High throughput screening applications, liquid display technology

  • Creation of microfluidic LSI

  • Rapid, simple fabrication

  • Disadvantages of PDMS

Critique

Critique

Monolithic Microfabricated Valves and Pumps by Multilayer Soft Lithography

  • Well presented, ground-breaking

  • Limited discussion of other techniques available

  • Weak Biological experiments or applications

  • Limited discussion of flaws of the materials used

  • Certain figures are not very detailed
