Micro- and nanofluidic devices are revolutionizing the fields of single-cell analysis, and benefiting related efforts in life science research, agricultural industry, and clinical medicine. These miniaturized devices introduce much desired …

Design of functional cationic microgels as conjugation scaffolds

In by Jules van der Voorn

We present the development and detailed characterization of a range of amine functionalized microgels for utilization in conjugation reactions. Cationic N-isopropylmethacrylamide (NIPMAm) based microgels were synthesized through copolymerization with a …

Multiplexed microfluidic quantification of proteins in serum

In by Jules van der Voorn

Rapid and low cost immunoassays targeting proteins in blood or other bodily fluids are highly sought after for point-of-care devices and early screening of patients. Immunoturbidimetric assays utilize latex particles …

Applications of Tunable Resistive Pulse Sensing

In by Jules van der Voorn

Tunable resistive pulse sensing (TRPS) is an experimental technique that has been used to study and characterise colloidal particles ranging from approximately 50 nm in diameter up to the size …

Physical and acoustical properties of fluorocarbon nanoparticles

In by Jules van der Voorn

In this thesis, acoustical and other physical properties of soft submicron suspensions were investigated in order to provide invaluable clues for their adaptation in theragnostic applications. Two types of dispersions …
