Micro and Nanofluidics

Micro- and nanofluidic systems, sometimes called labs-on-chip, are ultraminiaturized systems to control tiny amounts of fluids. Our research focus within micro- and nanofluidic systems is on developing integrated systems for healthcare applications. We develop novel technologies that enable powerful biomedical diagnostic and therapeutic procedures in new settings by simplifying their use and reducing their cost.

​​​​​From the technical perspective, our work focuses on materials, microsystem manufacturing- and integration techniques for labs-on-chip. This includes microfluidic sample preparation techniques for mixing, up-concentration, sample extraction, purification and labelling of analytes of interest in complex matrices. From an end-user perspective, the work focuses, to a large extent, on point-of-care diagnostic techniques for monitoring and diagnosing infectious agents and antibiotic resistance, but also on therapeutic applications.
