  • The use of VLSI to generate vision in blind people using a suitable neuroprosthesis implant of BIOMEMS in brain

    In Human beings image processing occurs in the occipital lobe of the brain. The brain signals that are generated for the image processing is universal for all humans. Generally the visually impaired people lose sight because of severe damage to only the eyes (natural photoreceptors) but the occipital lobe is still working. In this paper we discuss a technique of generating partial vision to the blind by utilizing electrical photoreceptors to capture image, process the image using edge & motion detection adaptive VLSI network that works on the principle of bug fly's visual system, convert it into digital data and wirelessly transmit it to a BioMEMS implanted into the occipital lobe of brain. The BioMEMS consists of an array of electrodes that generate the neuron potential which is similar to visually evoked potential of normal people by a resistor controlled we in bridge oscillator on it. Thus the neurons get the visual data from the BioMEMS which helps in generating partial vision or sight for the visually impaired patient.

  • Polydimethlsiloxane (PDMS) microchannel with trapping chamber for BioMEMS applications

    This study presents fabrication and simulation of a microchannel for BioMEMS applications. The basic construction of this microfluidics channel consists of an inlet and an outlet, a microchannel for transporting continuous fluid flow and a trapping chamber as mean of trapping and separating the intended biological cells. The microchannel is constructed using polydimethlsiloxane (PDMS) using replica molding technique from SU-8 mold. The flow characteristics and the pressure drop experienced by microchannel have been modeled and simulated using Finite Element Analysis (FEA). The simulation results revealed a linear relationship of velocity magnitude and pressure drop with volumetric flow rate in the range of 0.5 to 1000 μL/min. Furthermore, the velocity streamlines indicated a laminar fluid characteristic is maintained in the microchannel flow at maximum volumetric flow rate of 1000 μL/min. Pressure drop is a vital parameter in a microchannel design due to the bonding limit between the PDMS microchannel and its substrate. In this work, a maximum pressure drop of 14.8 kPa is developed at maximum volumetric flow rate of 1000 μL/min. The pressure drop is in a safe limit for PDMS microchannel bonded with PDMS layer substrate operation.

  • Applications of BioMEMS in Cell-Related Research

    Microelectromechanical systems have been used in biology and medicine for a number of years now. However, in the last decade, biological cell research has been an area where tremendous growth in their applications has been observed. The reason for this growth lies in the flourishing of the life sciences, which coincided with the maturation of the MEMS field. A large number of applications of BioMEMS in disciplines such as neuroscience, oncology, or (particularly) cell biology have been identified. In this talk, Prof. Tatic- Lucic will survey several different ways to exploit BioMEMS in cell biology, including cell manipulation, sorting, trapping and culturing. In addition, she will give examples of the work in this area done at Lehigh University. Specifically, she will address patterned growth of biological cells with application in cell-based sensors, and design, fabrication and characterization of BioMEMS devices for measuring mechanical compliance of cultured cells.

  • Chitosan-Mediated BioMEMS Platform for Optical Sensing

    We present an optical BioMEMS sensor with chitosan-mediated, spatially- selective functionalization of a microfluidic channel sidewall with single stranded probe DNA (ssDNA). High-contrast optical sensing of hybridization using integrated optical waveguides and fluorescently-tagged matching versus mismatching DNA sequences is demonstrated. The collected peak emission signal corresponding to matching DNA sequences (4μM) exceeds the peak emission signal corresponding to mismatching DNA sequences (8μM) by a factor of 50. We demonstrate that the device is robust and reusable by exposing it to two successive cycles of denaturation/re-hybridization, each time recovering the initial sensitivity and specificity.

  • Bioadhesion of polymers for BioMEMS

    Polymers are gaining significant importance in biomedical microelectromechanical systems (bioMEMS) owing to their advantages in microfabrication techniques over conventional silicon-based components and promising biocompatibility. Bioadhesion is a major issue in the reliability and performance of bioMEMS. In this study, the bioadhesion of two surface- modified polymers, poly(methylmethacrylate) and poly(dimethylsiloxane), were studied. The surfaces were modified by coating them with a self-assembled monolayer (SAM) of perfluorodecyltriethoxysilane. Contact angle measurements were made to understand the effect of surface modification. Adhesion of these SAM-modified surfaces were measured with fetal bovine serum dip-coated silicon-nitride atomic force microscope tip in phosphate-buffered saline. The SAM-modified surfaces exhibited lower bioadhesion compared with virgin surfaces.

  • Design and fabrication of a chaotic mixer for BioMEMS applications

    Since fabrication of microchips by MEMS technology has emerged, microchips that can interact with biological samples like virus, bacteria, DNA has been developed. Considering the advantages such as cost, dimension and compatibility with IC fabrication, these chips have found specific application areas. Microfluids and microfluidics constitute one of the major research areas of this emerging field, BioMEMS. Micro mixers have become an important component of BioMEMS which are designed for microfluidics applications. Fluids demonstrate two types of flow regime, laminar and turbulent. Turbulent flow is more advantageous than laminar flow when mixing is considered. Creating turbulent flow within microchannels, commonly used in BioMEMS devices, is a challenging task as scaling into the micro domain causes fluids to mix solely by diffusion. This study presents a method for mixing in micro environment based on chaotic advection. The proposed micro mixer makes use of the turbulent flow induced by bubbles which are created by thermal actuation based on joule heating principle on gold electrodes.

  • Design and fabrication of a polymeric biomems device for sensing FIV P24 antibodies and FeLV P27 antigens in feline saliva

    Summary form only given. A polymeric BioMEMS device is proposed that performs a qualitative test for Feline immunodeficiency virus (FIV) and Feline leukemia virus (FeLV). FIV and FeLV are both generally termed as retroviruses, which function by inserting their genes into the host's DNA. FIV infected cats range from 1.5-3.0% for healthy, indoor cats and up to 15% for at risk, already diseased cats. FeLV currently infects about 2.0-3.0% of all healthy cats, while as much as 13% of high risk, old, young or ill cats. Current technology for in house testing of both viruses requires blood samples and takes a few minutes to complete the detection. The BioMEMS device proposed here utilizes a non-invasive method and would require a minute or less for a complete result. A successful attempt has been made to integrate the electrochemical deposition technique with a multilayer fabrication approach using various polymers like photodephynable epoxy resin SU8, a conducting polymer polypyrrole (PPy), and a transparent elastomer polydimethylsiloxane (PDMS). The functional unit of the sensor will be fabricated on a silicon wafer. Chromium/Gold micro-electrodes are patterned on silicon wafer and SU-8 has been used for building micro- channels. SU-8 is a negative photoresist with chemical and physical properties suited to this device and is increasingly popular in MEMS devices. Furthermore, PPy will be selectively deposited on gold micro-electrodes and PDMS/protein mixture will be deposited on top of the PPy electrodes. This sensor unit of the wafer will then be diced and employed into a larger, hand held device. FIV antigens and FeLV antibodies will bind onto the selective electrodes (each with their own channel) with an elastomer PDMS. When saliva would pass through the channels, the conjugates would bind on the electrodes and hinder a reduction-oxidation (redox) reaction in a phosphate buffer saline solution. With further testing, resistance levels could be ascertained that would allow simple qualitative measurements for FIV/FeLV testing. The method presented here is innovative because of its ease of fabrication, non-invasive nature and rapid detection system that offer quick results. The non-invasive nature of using saliva offers even at home users a simple method of merely swiping the functional end of the device through the mouth of a cat, washing the electrodes of waste and then submerging in a saline solution. The use of lithographically patterned electrodes and redox reactions allow for a low cost device fabrication that will be able to function with high accuracy and simultaneously introduce a new technique for veterinary antibody/antigen tests
