About the Project

Micro/Nanofluidics covers the behavior, precise control and manipulation of fluids in micro and nano scale. It has emerged only in the 1990s and is a multidisciplinary field intersecting engineering, physics, chemistry, microtechnology and biotechnology and find wide applications in the development of DNA chips, micro-propulsion, micro-thermal technologies, lab-on-a-chip technology etc. In this project, we would be using computational and experimental methods for the design and development of Micro/Nanofluidic devices for point-of-care diagnostics. According to wikipedia, Point-of-care testing (POCT), also called near-patient testing or bedside testing, is defined as medical diagnostic testing at or near the point of care—that is, at the time and place of patient care. We would be also looking into extending this idea for developing sensors for on the spot testing, for example, food adulteration sensors.
