Continuous Separation of White Blood Cells From Whole Blood Using Viscoelastic Effects

IEEE Transactions on Biomedical Circuits and Systems, 2017

White blood cells (WBCs) are the only cellular constituent containing genetic materials, and, hence, are candidate biomarkers for a host of diseases. However, conventional methods for WBC separation tend to have low sample purity and separation efficiency, which will have adverse implications on downstream polymerase chain reaction (PCR) analyses. In this study, we introduce a two-stage microfluidic device which harnesses ...

  • Bio-MEMS based sensor for acute and chronic pain management: An online measurement strategy for using biomedicai MEMS sensor in the assessment of pain intensity and study of inflammation

    In this paper, we have proposed the use of BIO-MEMS based sensor for cost- effective, online assessment of pain intensity and study of inflammation through the levels of inflammation regulatory mediators such as prostaglandin E2, Cycle Oxygenase (COX-1 and COX-2), Leukotriene (LTA4 and LTB4) and Trponin - C. A microcantilever based biosensor is used, the surface of which is separated into various channels on which the antigens for the respective enzymes are coated as an immobilized layer. These enzymes found in the blood stream of the human body reacts with these antigens producing a biochemical reaction, thereby straining the micro-cantilever beam whose strain can be measured either by means of an on-chip potentiometric circuit fabricated in SOC and CMOS technology to follow the voltage changes in the MOSFET or optically by the wavelength shift of a transmitted laser from a laser source after reflection from the microcantilever beam, sensed suitable by a photodetector. The intensity of acute or chronic pain can thus be inferred, which helps the anaesthesiologists and Intensivists for accurate diagnosis and related treatment for complete relief from pain.

  • Stiffness and Sensitivity Analysis of Microcantilever Based Piezoresistive Sensor for Bio-MEMS Application

    This paper represents the simulation of cantilever based Piezoresistive sensor for Bio-MEMS (Microelectromechan-ical System) application. Bio-MEMS application requires the surface modification to bind the targeted Bio- molecules. The surface modification basically consists of SAM (Self Assembled Monolayer) formation on AulCr thin films. So, AulCr coating is very important for all the Bio-MEMS applications. The proposed MEMS based sensor utilized the piezoresistive effect to detect the targeted molecules. The ultimate goal of this research is to investigate stiffness and sensitivity of microcantilever based piezoresistive sensor for low pressure range using COMSOL Multiphysics 5.3 software to avoid the huge fabrication cost and time. In this paper, we also try to investigate which type of power supply is useful for the piezoresistive sensor to avoid self-heating effect. The stiffness or spring constant of the microcantilever based sensor is an important design parameter and also affects the sensitivity of sensor. In general, the stiffness of microcantilever in Bio-MEMS will be selected in the range of 1 mN/m to 1 N/m. Based on the simulation results, the stiffness and sensitivity of proposed sensor is found as 72 mN/m and 0.4203 uΩ/Ω/Pa respectively. Hence, this piezosensor is capable to detect the surface stresses produced due to DNA hybridization and antibody immobilization.

The novel integration process flow provides very flexible size of micro-channels in BiCMOS chip and brings the fluid very close to the sensors. The platform is demonstrated with BiCMOS integrated 120 GHz dielectric sensor and the changes of the dielectric constant of different fluids in the channel are successfully detected. The high reproducibility, small size, high throughput and low-cost process make the presented BiCMOS integrated microfluidic channel technology as a key platform for bio-MEMS and THz-sensing applications.

We have designed the proposed structure using FEM tool i.e Comsol Multi-Physics by utilizing capacitive actuation technique.

This results shows high sensitivity, high reliability and cost effectiveness of the proposed PD Sensor.

  • Continuous Separation of White Blood Cells From Whole Blood Using Viscoelastic Effects

    White blood cells (WBCs) are the only cellular constituent containing genetic materials, and, hence, are candidate biomarkers for a host of diseases. However, conventional methods for WBC separation tend to have low sample purity and separation efficiency, which will have adverse implications on downstream polymerase chain reaction (PCR) analyses. In this study, we introduce a two-stage microfluidic device which harnesses the elastic property of a non-Newtonian fluid for size-based separation of WBCs from whole blood. The device displayed high resolution and efficiency in separating polystyrene particles and blood cells of different sizes up to a flow rate of 150 μL/min in polyvinylpyrrolidone solutions. We performed a separate parametric study to evaluate the effects of the fluid elasticity and flow rate on the separation performance. The hematocrit of the blood sample was varied from 0.01% to 20% to investigate the effect of increased intercellular interactions on the separation efficiency. An optimized set of parameters was selected to demonstrate the applicability of the device to the separation of WBCs from diluted whole blood, with excellent efficiency and purity (>90%). This microfluidic device will be especially useful for blood fractionation applications requiring high sample purity and speedy processing. Additionally, the apparent flow-rate insensitivity of the separation allows for its potential use in point-of-care applications.

  • Implantable Bio-MEMS applications: A review

    Microelectromechanical systems, generally referred as MEMS, are developed using integrated technology on microscale. They are a combination of electronics, electrical and mechanical elements. These devices are capable of sensing, actuating and controlling. MEMS finds application in wide areas but its applications in medicine and biology are most popular. When MEMS technology is applied to biology, it is termed as Bio-MEMS. Bio-MEMS have immense potential and they can be used in wide applications, be it drug delivery, bio-sensing or single cell manipulations. In this paper focus is laid on some of the most popularly used applications of implantable Bio-MEMS including micropumps, biosensors, microrobots, stents and pacemakers that were designed to offer better diagnostic and therapeutic ways. Micropumps are used for drug delivery, implantable biosensors are used to perform in vivo diagnostics, microrobots make medical procedures les invasive, stents are used for widening the blocked artery, and pacemakers are use to restore the normal beating of the heart.
