We are a multidisciplinary research group at the University of Helsinki, Finland, developing microfluidic sample preparation and separation devices for pharmaceutical and bioanalyses. The developed microfluidic total analysis systems (also referred to as lab-on-a-chip) are designed with a view to facilitate examination of the molecular cross-talk between the environment and the human health.
Our primary tools include various types of immobilized enzyme microreactors and analytical techniques like microchip capillary electrophoresis in combination with (laser-induced) fluorescence detection, electrospray ionization mass spectrometry, and electrochemical detection. We are also keen on integrating various types of sample preparation units as integral parts of the microfluidic separation systems.
