Optoelectronic tweezers (OET) using ODEP forces were first demonstrated. It is now feasible to fabricate ODEP devices on flexible plastics. It is envisioned that the ODEP platform will become a promising tool for future biomedical applications. These newly developed ODEP devices are extremely useful for investigations at the single cell level. Several(More)
Microfluidic devices are operated at a low-Reynolds-number flow regime such that the transportation and mixing of fluids are naturally challenging. There is still a great need to integrate fluid control systems such as pumps, valves and mixers with other functional microfluidic devices to form a micro-total-analysis-system. This study presents a new(More)
The current study presents new methods to quickly separate micro-particles with different sizes using optically-induced dielectrophoretic (ODEP) forces. It was found that the strength of the ODEP force induced on the hydrogenated amorphous silicon surface is determined by the wavelength of the illuminating patterns. Therefore two moving lines and one(More)
This paper briefly demonstrates three kinds of microfluidic modules by using a polymer-based optically-induced dielectrophoresis (ODEP) platform. Polymer materials with excellent optoelectronic efficiency can be mass-produced at room temperature using a spin-coating process. This approach can easily facilitate the mass-fabrication process of the ODEP chip.(More)
This paper presents a new chip-based reverse transcription polymerase chain reaction (RT-PCR) system integrated with a sample pretreatment device for fast DNA amplification and diagnosis of RNA- based viruses. A new two-way serpentine-shape (S- shape) pneumatic micropump and a magnetic bio- separator were developed for purification and enrichment of(More)
This paper presents a new miniature reverse-transcription polymerase chain-reaction (RT-PCR) system integrating a sample pretreatment device for fast nucleic-acid amplification and diagnosis of viruses and bacteria. In the system, a two-way serpentine-shape (s-shape) pneumatic micropump and a magnetic bioseparator were developed for separation and(More)
