(Springer US: Biomedical Microdevices, 2015-12-16)Reusable antibacterial non-leaching monolithic columns polymerized in microfluidic channels designed for on-chip cell lysis applications were obtained by the photoinitiated free radical copolymerization of diallyldimethylammonium ...
Lysis of Gram-positive and Gram-negative Bacteria by Antibacterial Porous Polymeric Monolith Formed in Microfluidic Biochips for Sample Preparation (Springer-Verlag Berlin Heidelberg: Analytical and Bioanalytical Chemistry, 2014-07-25)Bacterial cell lysis is demonstrated using polymeric microfluidic biochips operating via a hybrid mechanical shearing/contact killing mechanism. These biochips are fabricated from a cross-linked poly(methyl methacrylate) ...
Antibacterial Porous Polymeric Monolith Columns with Amphiphilic and Polycationic Character on Cross-linked PMMA Substrates for Cell Lysis Applications (The Royal Society of Chemistry: RSC Advances, 2013-10-09)The application of porous polymeric monolith (PPM) columns as an effective tool for bacterial cell lysi within microfluidic chips is demonstrated. By taking advantage of the large surface area and controllable pore size ...
