LAB-ON-CHIP BASED ON RAYLEIGH SURFACE ACOUSTIC WAVES (R-SAW) FOR MOLECULAR/ONCOLOGICAL ANALYSIS POINT-OF-CARE

The patent proposal is a nanostructured LoC based on Rayleigh surface acoustic waves (R-SAW) with an electric read-out. R-SAW represents currently the sole technology allowing both the manipulation of biological samples (e.g., mixing, displacement, heating, separation and cell lysis) and the analysis on the same substrate.

Application number:  IT 102019000000418

YEAR:  2019

APPLICATIONS

Replication of an entire laboratory analysis process on a small (mm2-cm2) chip, increasing the efficiency of the process by using a smaller volume of reagents while maintaining a high sensitivity.
