Using Paper-Based Microfluidics Diagnostics for Clinical and Environmental Testing

In this video, Dr. Charles Henry, from Colorado State University, discusses his work on the uses of microfluidic devices and explores the three types of application his lab is looking at. These projects include the development of improved electrode materials, low-cost paper diagnostics, and tissues-on-a-chip for the study of drug metabolism and disease monitoring. Henry highlights how his lab is being recognized with an ASC Measurement Science Award for its work on paper-based microfluidics devices and how he hopes these devices become more widely used in the field.

Dr. Chuck Henry

Colorado State University

The Henry Group develop cutting-edge lab-on-a-chip technologies, to study environmental and biological phenomena. Current research projects include the development of paper- and polymer-based microfluidic systems, for the colorimetric and electrochemical quantification of biologically- and environmentally-relevant analytes (e.g. bacteria, neurotransmitters, heavy metals, etc.). Major techniques used include microfabrication, chromatography, electrochemistry, electrophoresis, microscopy, and 3D printing.
