Informative and educational for all (engineers, chemists, physics, etc.)
As adverstised a good general introduction
Good overview of the technology
Anybody curious about lab-on-a-chip devices. After following the courses “Lab-on-a-chip devices I and II”, the student will be able to design processes to fabricate simple lab-on-a-chip devices. The course participants will finally be able to discuss their individual Lab-on-a-chip challenges and identify the best solution.
Micro- and nanotechnology enables the fabrication of miniature components that plays an important role in the development of micro total analysis systems (µTAS) or laboratories-on-a-chip that integrates all stages of chemicals analysis in a single microdevice. The scope of this course is to give a common understanding into this interdisciplinary field. You will be introduced to the basic theory of microfluidics, simulation and design of microfluidic devices, microfabrication methods (silicon, glass, and polymer), microliquid handling components, functional integration and applications in chemistry and life sciences. These subjects will be illustrated with examples from research projects at the Dept. of Micro and Nanotechnology at the Technical University of Denmark. Additionally you will get an overview of the state of the art of lab on a chip devices .
