  • Publication number: 20110098597
    Abstract: This invention provides microfluidic samplers for withdrawing one or more precise micro- or nano-liter volumes of a sample. The invention provides microfabricated automatic systems comprising integrated poly(dimethyl-siloxane) (PDMS) micro fluidics. The sample can be biological samples, including samples from animals or plants. The samples can be fluid or gas. The samples can comprise a biological fluid, such as blood, tears, cerebral spinal fluid (CSF) and the like, from a test subject such as a human or a mouse. The invention also provides methods for making and using the microfluidic samplers of the invention.

  • Publication number: 20100279309
    Abstract: Microfluidic chips, systems including at least one integrated microfluidic chip operably connected to hardware (e.g., docking device, high voltage electrodes, portable fluorescence microscope, computer, etc.), and methods for analyzing peptides (e.g., toxins), proteins (e.g., cancer biomarkers, recombinant human growth hormone, recombinant human erythropoietin), and protein expression in biological samples (e.g., human serum, urine, or tissue, marine organism, seafood, etc.) have been developed. On a single microfluidic chip as described herein, several sequential processes for analyzing a protein (e.g., cell culturing, cell lysis, protein enrichment, protein labeling, and protein detection) can be performed in an automated fashion.
