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.


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.


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.


Enplas Life TechChallenges and Solutions for Fluid Sealing Interfaces in Diagnostics Devices
Scot MacGillivray, Sales Manager, Enplas Life Tech

Presentation includes details on challenges of complex, multi-functional devices, chip-to-world interface, robust fluid sealing for inlet and outlet ports in cartridge-type diagnostic devices.


IDEX Health & ScienceReagent Management: Between Wet & Dry
Jim Sirkis, Chief Technology Officer, IDEX Health & Science

Having a comprehensive reagent handling plan is pivotal in the development of a successful consumables platform.  Understanding the interdependencies of assay workflow, reagent manufacturing, consumable design, and cartridge assembly, creates a cost-effective and scalable product. This presentation will review technologies and capabilities to store wet and dry reagents, load reagents and manage on-card reagents through reconstitution, mixing, and precisely dispensing.  A reliable and robust reagent handling setup requires collaboration throughout the value stream; from reagent manufacturing through to consumable assembly.  IDEX Health & Science will share broad fluidic expertise and a set of functional tools to support a systems-based view of lab-on-a-chip and point-of-care reagent handling.
