Unfortunately this event has been postponed due to airline cancellations.
Please join Dr. Takehiko Kitamori for a special seminar titled, Micro/Nano-Fluidics for Cell and Molecular Processing and Its Biomedical Application, on Friday, March 2, 2018 at 2:30pm. Please find the talk abstract below for more detail.
We have developed pressure driven microfluidics from very early stage of microfluidics in early 1990’s. We established the basic concept and method of total integration of entire chemical processes for analysis, synthesis, cell experimental protocol, and so on. The key concept is micro unit operation MUO and continuous flow chemical processing CFCP. Our original ultra-sensitive detector thermal lens microscope TLM is also a powerful readout device. These methods innovated the microfluidics and established the bases of today’s biomedical microfluidics like immunoassay, extraction, cell culture, organs on chip, and other applications in the 1990’s. The practical and industrial applications were also successful. Recently, we have pioneered nanofluidics since beginning of the 2000’s carrying the same methodologies as microfluidics. Femto liter chemical processing and single/countable molecule detection have already been available. It may innovate chemistry and biology at single molecule levels from the unit of mole. I will introduce these methodologies and examples of biomedical applications including the hospital use saving patient lives and a single cell single molecule analysis.
