A hybrid microfluidic/IC capacitive sensor is presented in this paper for highly integrated lab-on-chips (LoCs). We put forward the design and implementation of a charge based capacitive sensor array in 0.18-mum CMOS process. This sensor chip is incorporated with a microfluidic channel using direct-write microfluidic fabrication process (DWFP). The design,(More)
In this paper, we present a bacteria growth monitoring technique using a complementary metal-oxide semiconductor capacitive sensor. The proposed platform features a differential capacitive readout architecture with two interdigitized reference and sensing electrodes. These electrodes are exposed to pure Luria-Bertani (LB) medium and Escherichia Coli (E.(More)
We describe the emerging applications of direct-write CMOS-based lab-on-chip which consists of capacitive sensors integrated with microfluidic structures. The microfluidic components are implemented through direct-write microfabrication process (DWFP) on a variety of substrates including integrated circuits. We put forward the recent advances of DWFP for(More)
