Diagnosis-On-Chip


Microfluidics-based diagnostics is an emerging field and is preferred over conventional diagnostic systems because of the faster sample processing, lower reagent volume per test and the fact that it allows for Point-of-Care (POC) diagnosis in inaccessible areas. We design POC diagnosis devices with integrated optical and electronic sensors for both pathogenic diseases (M.Tb, Dengue, Malaria etc.) and non-pathogenic diseases like various forms of Cancer. ELISA and MTT Assays are some of the commonly used diagnostic methodologies in laboratories and we work towards the development of their ‘On-Chip’ versions which are more sensitive than the conventional assays, but at the same time are cost-effective and could be deployed in remote locations.
