In this paper, we describe the design and fabrication of a microfluidic device for cell lysis and DNA purification, and the results of device tests using a real sample of buccal cells. Cell lysis was thermally executed for two minutes at 80 degrees C in a serpentine type microreactor (20 microL) using an Au microheater with a microsensor. The DNA was then… CONTINUE READING
