LabSmith, Inc.Entrepreneurial Research: Tools and Techniques for Creative, Efficient Microfluidic Research Spanning Electrophoresis, Flow Control, and Real-Time Particle Image Analysis
Eric Cummings, Chief Technical Officer, LabSmith, Inc.

We tend to think of “research” and “product development” as separate enterprises: the former characterized by creativity, the latter by application. Yet successful, entrepreneurial researchers are expert at capitalizing on creativity while also optimizing for value, cost, and time.

A growing body of commercial equipment is available to help researchers develop creative solutions efficiently, with a clear path from test apparatus to fully-fledged product. In this talk we will discuss LabSmith products and tools for microfluidics research and product development.  We will show how this apparatus makes it easy to assemble and automate instruments spanning technologies such as multi-channel electrophoresis and dielectrophoresis, pressure, flow and temperature control, and real-time particle counting and characterization.  We will show how these resources help researchers create custom solutions that: produce robust results; apply affordable, broadly available apparatus to move research from test setup to prototype to product; and, take advantage of automation to reduce time and improve test efficiency.

We will provide examples in diverse microfluidic technologies that have been applied in academia and business with remarkable success.

Redbud LabsFast, Cartridge-Ready Sample Prep Using Off-the-Shelf Components
Richard Spero, CEO, Redbud Labs

Sample-to-answer products are catching fire in the diagnostics and research markets, but microfluidic sample prep remains a major challenge. Methods that are ubiquitous at the bench, such as magnetic beads and centrifugation, translate poorly to cartridge formats. Meanwhile, microfluidic sample prep methods are generally proprietary and challenging to customize. We demonstrate microfluidic sample prep using commercially available components to deliver rapid affinity purification of target analytes. The result is an open platform for cartridge-ready sample prep that can deliver for lab-on-a-chip developers what magnetic beads enable at the bench.

Yole DeveloppementStatus of the Microfluidics Industry: The Lure of Microfluidic Devices High Volume Production
Sebastien Clerc, Technology & Market Analyst, Microfluidics & Medical Technologies, Yole Developpement

The first commercially-available lab-on-a-chip devices are now more than 20 years old. Over the past decade, the complexity of microfluidic devices has reached a level not even dreamed of before. Complex laboratory processes can be integrated and automated on-chip, from sample to answer. However, the mass production of such devices is still far from being widespread. In the meantime, the acquisition wave continues, leading to an impressively rapid structuration of the industry. As a consequence, a minority of players now represent 75% of the microfluidic market and seem to be the only ones which reach large production volumes. In this presentation, Sebastien Clerc will give some inputs to understand this situation, explain what the keys to unlock the situation are, propose alternative strategies for which commercial success does not lie on large volumes, and overall share Yole’s vision of the latest microfluidics market and technology trends.

Veryst Engineering, LLCModeling and Simulation of Microfluidic Devices
Matthew Hancock, Managing Engineer, Veryst Engineering, LLC

Modeling and simulation are key components of the engineering development process, providing a rational, systematic method to engineer and optimize products and dramatically accelerate the development cycle over a pure intuition-driven, empirical testing approach. Modeling and simulation help to identify key parameters related to product performance (“what to try”) as well as insignificant parameters or conditions related to poor outcomes (“what not to try”). For microfluidic devices, modeling and simulation can inform the design and integration of common components such as mixers, micropumps, manifolds, and channel networks. Modeling and simulation may also be used to estimate a range of processes occurring within the fluid bulk and near cells, including shear stresses, transport of nutrients and waste, chemical reactions, heat transfer, and surface tension & wetting effects. I will discuss how an array of modeling tools such as scaling arguments, analytical formulas, and finite element simulations may be leveraged to address these microfluidic device development issues. I will also work through a few examples in detail.

Cap-to-Dispense (µCD): A Universal Microfluidic-Robotic Interface For Automated Pipette-Free High-Precision Liquid Handling
Tingrui Pan, Professor, Department of Biomedical Engineering, University of California-Davis, United States of America

Microfluidic devices have been increasingly used for low-volume liquid handling operations.  However, laboratory automation of such delicate devices has lagged behind due to the lack of world-to-chip (macro-to-micro) interfaces.  In this paper, we have presented the first pipette-free robotic-microfluidic interface using a microfluidic-embedded container cap, referred to as a Microfluidic Cap-to-Dispense (µCD), to achieve a seamless integration of liquid handling and robotic automation without any traditional pipetting steps.  The µCD liquid handling platform offers a generic and modular way to connect the robotic device to standard liquid containers.  It utilizes the high accuracy and high flexibility of the robotic system to recognize, capture and position; and then using microfluidic adaptive printing it can achieve high-precision on-demand volume distribution.  With its modular connectivity, nanoliter processability, high adaptability, and multitask capacity, µCD shows great potential as a generic robotic-microfluidic interface for complete pipette-free liquid handling automation.

IMT MicrotechnologiesDiagnostics Applications Made of non-CMOS Compatible Materials on Glass
Alexios Tzannis, Business Development Manager Life Sciences, IMT Microtechnologies

In this presentation, we discuss the challenges and solutions of implementing WLP processes for LOAC products. The overall complexity is addressed by transferring MEMS standardization protocols, methodologies and equipment available in the MEMS into the field of microfluidics. The approach is illustrated by 3 case studies: Double emulsion droplet generation, Electrical impedance flow cells and NGS flow cells.

STRATEC Consumables GmbHLimitations and New Methods in the Characterization of Microfluidic Devices For Manufacturing QC
Maximilian Pitzek, Project Manager, Development, STRATEC Consumables GmbH

The range of applications for microfluidic devices is constantly expanding and so are the challenges for manufacturing. There is always excitement for the development of new manufacturing methods, but the importance of new analytical methods is often underestimated by contract manufacturers. Here we present our latest advances in the analytics and QC of injection molded microfluidic devices, that opened up the door to new types of devices, or made it possible to mass manufacture high complexity consumables.

GATTAquantNext-Generation Labelling
Jurgen Schmied, CEO and Co-Founder, GATTAquant

DNA nanotechnology currently revolutionizes many areas of science and technology. Our mission is to bring this technology into diagnostics in the form of a truly versatile and customizable detection system.  It can be applied to immunoassays just as well as nucleic acid testing. Our technology allows ultra-sensitive detection down to the single-molecule level without additional signal amplification steps.  This presentation contains truly novel approaches to tackle common difficulties of (fluorescence) detection. A new type of super-bright and versatile label is discussed along with strategies how to attach the label to its probe. Furthermore, massive multiplexing and simultaneous detection of nucleic acids and proteins will be presented.

EV Group (EVG)Integration Technologies for Next-Generation Microfluidic Devices
Bernd Dielacher, Business Development Manager, EV Group (EVG)

As Lab-on-a-Chip devices are increasingly getting more complex including components of different form factors and materials, thus advanced and scalable integration processes are required. As a market leading supplier of wafer bonding and nanoimprint lithography (NIL) equipment, we will demonstrate how these technologies are applied to microfluidics chips. We will discuss processes for hybrid integration schemes such as CMOS integration and will show how NIL can be used to integrate on-chip optical bio-sensing by nanometer-scale resolution patterns.
