Paper Abstract

Microfluidics has proven to be a very effective technology for the identification of biological and chemical analytes in a CBRNE scenario. As it will be shown in the following, the required steps of those analytical processes are manifold making the development of an integrated microfluidic device a complicated project with a high level of technological risk, because all necessary analytical processes have to be implemented into a single device. The implementation is initiated by a dissection of the biochemical workflow into mandatory bio-analytical steps and the resulting protocol for each of those steps is translated into an appropriate design of a chip-based unit. In this report, examples for such chipbased functional modules are given. In addition, examples for a merging of positively tested modules into an integrated chip are shown and, finally, representatives for a smooth interaction between outer world, microfluidic chip, and chip driving instrument are presented.
