Miniaturized Microfluidic Devices

Event Dates

The purpose of this technology transfer workshop is to provide the student with an introduction to microfluidics, biochip-based extraction, amplification, quantification, separation and detection mechanisms, and the use of this technology to enable fully integrated DNA analysis in the forensic setting in the future. This class will include both lecture and demonstration activities to illustrate the concepts presented.

Microfluidic separation and detection of DNA fragments will be demonstrated using the ruggedized, portable Genebench FX™-Series 100 instrument. Identifiler® amplicons will be utilized during this demonstration and the data will be analyzed using GeneMarker® software.
