We report a new design of microfluidic chip (Multiple electric Field with Uniform Flow chip, MFUF chip) to create multiple electric field strengths (EFSs) while providing a uniform flow field simultaneously. MFUF chip was fabricated from poly-methyl methacrylates (PMMA) substrates by using CO2 laser micromachining. A microfluidic network with(More)
In this paper, we report a new method to incorporate 3D scaffold with electrotaxis measurement in the microfluidic device. The electrotactic response of lung cancer cells in the 3D foam scaffolds which resemble the in vivo pulmonary alveoli may give more insight on cellular behaviors in vivo. The 3D scaffold consists of ordered arrays of uniform spherical(More)
The wound-healing assay is an easy and economical way to quantify cell migration under diverse stimuli. Traditional assays such as scratch assays and barrier assays are widely and commonly used, but neither of them can represent the complicated condition when a wound occurs. It has been suggested that wound-healing is related to electric fields, which were(More)
We have demonstrated a detection method for the ultra-sensitive detection of an mRNA biomarker. The method utilizes functionalized magnetic nanoparticles (MNPs) for signal enhancement in conjunction with surface plasmon resonance (SPR) on gold nanoslits. The approach for detection includes double hybridization at two different specific locations in two(More)
The development of a robot assisted recovery room is presented for post-surgical healthcare. Robotic beds, multi-media environment, and multi-sensor monitoring are the three key components in the recovery room. The robotic beds are developed for posture changing and body transferring, the multi-media environment is employed for effectively pacifying the(More)
This paper presents a novel design of a multi-functional bed for the bedridden patients, including elderly and maim persons. Most patients encounter difficulty in posture changing and moving. To overcome these problems, the proposed design conception is validated through the consolation with medical staff as well as from literature survey. A belt system is(More)
