Paper Microfluidic Devices for Fieldable Forensic Testing

Event Dates
Event Duration
One hour

A suite of paper microfluidic devices for detecting explosives, drugs and serology has now been developed. These devices are not much larger than a postage stamp and can detect multiple target analytes. In this webinar we will describe the development, use, and applications of the technology.

Detailed Learning Objectives:

  • Explanation of the manufacture and development of paper microfluidic devices
  • Discussion of the chemistry and methodology behind colorimetric detection methods
  • Description of individual devices and their applications in forensic testing
