BIOGRAPHY

Development of Microfluidic Devices with Embedded Microelectrodes using Electrodeposition and Hot Embossing [BPN729]
The use of microfluidic devices has experienced a tremendous increase over the last years, especially
valuable for healthcare applications. In this context plastic materials are increasingly relevant especially for
large scale fabrication and commercialization. However plastics are still not widely used at the research level
due to the lack of available inexpensive industrial–like fabrication equipment. In this work we describe a rapid
and highly cost-effective approach for fabricating plastic microfluidic devices with embedded microelectrodes
allowing 2D and 3D configurations. We present an interdigitated microelectrode configuration applied to
impedance cytometry and cellular electroporation/lysis on chip devices as an example of the great potential of
this technology. Our long-term goals are to further explore the potential of hot-embossed microscale
devices as platforms for complete BioMEMS devices. This includes the integration of functionalized elements
and silicon-based biosensors. A variety of functional coatings will be developed to apply integrated
electrodes to many different sensing applications.
