Biomedical devices

To illustrate my range of projects, previous projects included
1. The $100 lab: A review of open-source biomedical devices for low resource settings.
The project addressed questions such as:
- Why do we need open-source devices?
- Do open-source projects come with responsibilities and duties regarding reproducibility, accessibility, health and safety?
- Good practice in sharing open-source biomedical devices
- How can we track open-source device usage?

2. Development and test of a microfluidic precision pump.
Precision pumping is critical for microfluidic operations in a wide range of fields from lab-on-a-chip applications, to medical, pharmaceutical, and biotech industries. The student was involved in the implementation of a state of the art microfluidic precision pump

3. Facilitating anti-doping and sport science sampling
Anti-doping test campaigns and sport science both requires the sampling of minute amount of blood from sportsmen and women. In most cases the analytes of interest are found in plasma, and blood cells must therefore be discarded as early as possible from samples to avoid potential inhibition prior to analysis.
The project included:
- experiment an existing microfluidic device for blood plasma extraction using healthy volunteers' samples.
- design or re-design a microfluidic chip for the extraction of minute amount of blood.
