  1. 1. Cell and Particle Trapping in Microfluidic Systems Using Ultrasonic Standing Waves

    Författare :Mikael Evander; Avdelningen för Biomedicinsk teknik; []
    Nyckelord :TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; acoustic particle manipulation; standing waves; trapping; ultrasound; cell handling; particle handling; Microsystem technology; lab on a chip; microfluidics;

    Sammanfattning : Analysis methods are currently being miniaturized in order to save time and money while achieving higher sensitivities. The ultimate goal is to create a lab-on-a-chip where all analysis steps and instruments can be automated and integrated into a single chip. LÄS MER

  2. 2. Acoustic Standing Wave Manipulation of Particles and Cells in Microfluidic Chips

    Författare :Andreas Lenshof; Avdelningen för Biomedicinsk teknik; []
    Nyckelord :TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; acoustic particle manipulation; separation; ultrasound; cell handling; particle handling; lab on a chip; Microsystem technology; microfluidics; standing waves;

    Sammanfattning : The rise of MEMS and µTAS techniques has created a whole new family of microfluidic devices for a wide range of chemical and biomedical analyses to be performed on small Lab-on-a-chip platforms. The operations often include small samples of particle or cell suspensions on which separation, mixing, trapping or sorting is performed. LÄS MER

  3. 3. Detecting Inclusions in a Silicone Rubber Phantom Using Standing Lamb Waves and Multiple Frequency Footprints

    Författare :Ulf G Jonsson; Britt Andersson; Olof A Lindahl; Jacques Ohayon; Umeå universitet; []
    Nyckelord :ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Piezoelectric; Silicone rubber; Impedance; Resonance; Lamb waves; Phantom; Electronics; elektronik;

    Sammanfattning : The thesis deals with one major question: is it possible, using one piezoelectric sensor/vibrator, to detect a hard inclusion in a silicone rubber phantom? The question was approached with an open mind and the task was subdivided into three clearly identifiable parts: characterization of the piezoelectric sensor/vibrator (paper I), creating a model of the visco-elastic properties of a tissue-like material (phantom) in contact with the sensor/vibrator (paper II), and to detect the presence of a hard inclusion in the phantom (paper III). All vibrations of the sensor/vibrator and phantom was modeled using a finite element method (FEM). LÄS MER

  4. 4. Resonant Waves in the Terrestrial Magnetosphere

    Författare :Tommy Eriksson; Lars Blomberg; Stephan Buchert; KTH; []

    Sammanfattning : Waves in the mHz frequency range are a prominent feature in the terrestrial magnetosphere. In this frequency range the waves have wavelengths comparable to the lengths of the geomagnetic field lines. The waves are then standing waves along closed field lines with endpoints in the southern and northern ionosphere. LÄS MER

  5. 5. Micro-scale Platforms for Investigations of Biological Structures

    Författare :Anna Kim; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Nyckelord :NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; microfabrication; non-ionic surfactants; single-cell viability; hydrodynamic flow confinement; cell-to-cell connections; SU-8; Teflon AF; cell protrusions; free-standing probes; millimeter-waves;

    Sammanfattning : This thesis describes the development of innovative micro-scale platforms as a means to address the current challenges within the field of cell biology, and to provide an interface between miniaturized analytical technology and experimental systems for the life sciences. The work includes an analytical platform for rapid assessment of the viability of adherent single cells; a surface patterning strategy for investigations of cell-to-cell communication via protrusions; a versatile microfluidic probe in SU-8 hard-polymer, and a microfabricated millimeter-wave measurement system for the identification and characterization of niosome (non-ionic surfactant vesicle) constituents, which is operated in a label-free, non-invasive manner.
