IMT 32-21 Master or Bachelor Thesis: Development of new Detection Principles in micro fluidic Bioanalytical Systems

Organizational unit

Institute of Microstructure Technology (IMT)

Job description

The Institute of Microstructure Technology is developing miniaturized biological analytical systems. The general objective is to proof evidence of smallest amount of analytes in micro fluidic channels and to determine a concentration of the target analyte.

Focus of this work lies in the development of a new detection principle that allows a marked free detection of the analyte of interest. Special effects are used in the micro system by exploiting bi-phase micro fluidic channel systems as well as short-term variations of di-electric properties. The latter should proof the evidence of micro particles within the micro fluidic channel. For this work, already existing chip designs can be used and should be optimized.

The topic of this thesis lies between classic engineering science as well in practical applications of biology and chemistry. You should feel comfortable in a work, which requires some interdisciplinary skills.
