Presentation of the new Surface Acoustic Wave biosensors and their integration with microfluidics

Michale Rapp Digital Olfaction 2016

Dr. Michael Rapp is a researcher from Karlsruhe Institute of Technology in Germany and working on Surface Acoustic Wave (SAW) sensor based analytical systems for gas, olfaction and bio- sensing. To fulfill a proper job of these systems he continuously work on new sampling methods to improve the signals in term of sensitivity, selectivity, unwanted cross sensitivity and a good reproducibility. This includes the use of microfluidic sampling systems especially in the area of biosensing. A major goal of his work is to keep the manufacturing and also the operating costs of these systems low and, thus, being able to emerge in new markets.

During Tokyo DOS World Congress 2016. Dr. Michael Rapp will present his new Surface Acoustic Wave (SAW) Biosensors and their Integration with Microfluidics and will answer the following questions:

  • How we can we realize a compact multi sensor array using high frequency and working in liquid environment ?
  • How sampling can be done properly with a minimum amount of analyte?
  • What is the sampling time and how we can reduce dispersion and diffusion phenomena ?
  • What sensitivity level can be reached ?
