1. Paper fluidics for biological and environmental sensors
Paper based sensors are now commercialized to a great extent. Serving in the field of clinical diagnosis from simple blood sugar level and protein testing to a more complex DNA sequencing, all possible on one paper based micro-PAD. Food quality and preservation can now be monitored by temperature-time indicator chips, whereas a more innovative chip can also be designed for environmental monitoring of chemicals and pollution in air and in water.
2. Instrumentation for environmental and energy devices
We are developing the instrument for biological, environmental and energy generation and diagnosis using fluid mechanical technologies. Not only microfluidic technology, but also bubble dynamics, heat transfer and mass transfer technologies and knowledge are being developed.
