This paper describes a silica nanoparticle-modified microfluidic paper-based analytical device (μPAD) with improved color intensity and uniformity for three different enzymatic reactions with clinical relevance (lactate, glucose, and glutamate). The μPADs were produced on a Whatman grade 1 filter paper and using a CO2 laser engraver. Silica nanoparticles(More)
The use of inexpensive materials and cost-effective manufacturing processes for mass production of microfluidic devices is very attractive and has spurred a variety of approaches. Such devices are particularly suited for diagnostic applications in limited resource settings. This review describes the recent and remarkable advances in the use of low-cost(More)
This report describes the use of PDMS ME coupled with amperometric detection for rapid separation of ascorbic, gallic , ferulic, p-coumaric acids using reverse polarity. ME devices were fabricated in PDMS by soft lithography and detection was accomplished using an integrated carbon fiber working electrode aligned in the end-channel configuration. Separation(More)
This paper describes the effects of different modes and engraving parameters on the dimensions of microfluidic structures produced in PMMA using laser engraving. The engraving modes included raster and vector, while the explored engraving parameters included power, speed, frequency, resolution, line-width, and number of passes. Under the optimum conditions,(More)
