Investigations on the Effects of Surfactants in Microfluidic Separations and Assays
This project focused on the testing of various types and concentrations of surfactants for preventing non-specific binding (NSB) of proteins to polar glass surfaces in microfluidic channels. The project to date has involved two phases that included testing of the surfactants in a static environment while measuring fluorescence changes of a test system over time, and then testing the effects of the surfactants while an electroosmotic flow (EOF) is present in the channels. The first phase of the project was used to test two commercial (SB3-8 and TWEEN 20) and one synthesized (DMG-12) surfactants ...
