Monitoring human papillomavirus (HPV) E6/E7 mRNA expression may provide an accurate and informative diagnostic approach for detection of oncogene activity related to the development of severe dysplasia or cervical carcinoma. A multiplex nucleic acid sequence based amplification (NASBA) assay, utilizing molecular beacon probes for real-time detection was(More)
The paper presents the development of a "proof-of-principle" hands-free and self-contained diagnostic platform for detection of human papillomavirus (HPV) E6/E7 mRNA in clinical specimens. The automated platform performs chip-based sample preconcentration, nucleic acid extraction, amplification, and real-time fluorescent detection with minimal user(More)
In this paper, a passive planar micromixer with ellipse-like micropillars is proposed to operate in the laminar flow regime for high mixing efficiency. With a splitting and recombination (SAR) concept, the diffusion distance of the fluids in a micromixer with ellipse-like micropillars was decreased. Thus, space usage for micromixer of an automatic sample(More)
