Teixeira, Andrew R
The goal of this project is to create an opportunity for chemical engineering students at Worcester Polytechnic Institute (WPI) to gain experience using microfluidic reactor systems. A procedure by Professor Andrew Teixiera was tested for feasibility as an experiment in the Unit Operations curriculum. Microfluidics applications were explored in lab-on-a-chip devices. To make these tests more sustainable, chemical solvents and chromatography materials were tested for reversibility and building of chip prototypes to make hormone testing reusable and therefore more accessible.
