Magneto-elastic technologies for point-of-care diagnostics

Project description

Innovative microfluidic pumps for point-of-care diagnostic

Diagnostic protocols often require blood plasma samples which, in small quantities, provide a quick and efficient way to diagnose diseases. The EU-funded MagElastic project aims to develop innovative healthcare devices which will improve the process of extracting and processing blood plasma for point-of-care diagnostics. The technology utilised is based on recently developed magnetoelastic micromotors. These can function as microfluidic pumps, valves, and stirrers for liquid manipulation at the microscopic scale. The overall objective is to set up a start-up company to develop a blood plasma separation component, enabling the production of a range of point-of-care devices for the diagnosis of different illnesses.
