Bidirectional flow filter: microfluidic device for separation of biomolecules

Project description

Extraction of molecules and particles from sub-microlitre samples

Life science and biomedical applications, including point-of-care diagnostics and forensic analysis, involve analysis of extremely small samples. Despite the availability of large arsenals of sample preparation methods, current approaches are often not suitable for volumes below the microlitre range. The EU-funded BiFlowFilter proof-of-concept project aims to develop a technology for rapid and high-purity extraction of molecules and particles from sub-microlitre volumes. The main objectives of the project include technical optimisation and validation of the technology as well as the establishment of a solid foundation for commercialisation. The novel separation technology will be uniquely positioned in the market of sample preparations and has the potential to be an important component in the future of point-of-care diagnostics and personalised medicine.
