Automated, Ultra-Sterile Solid Sample Handling and Analysis on a Chip
NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory, Pasadena, California
Friday, February 01 2013
This technique could be used in the pharmaceutical industry for the automated manipulation of
small amounts of powdered drugs.
There are no existing ultra-sterile lab-on-
a-chip systems that can accept solid
samples and perform complete chemical
analyses without human intervention.
The proposed solution is to
demonstrate completely automated lab-on-
a-chip manipulation of powdered
solid samples, followed by on-chip liquid
extraction and chemical analysis.
