Developing Novel Microfluidic Devices with Multiphysics Simulation

Presented by

Robyn Pritchard, Consultant Physicist The Technology Partnership (TTP) and Andrew Young, Technical Manager COMSOL

About this talk

If you are interested in using simulation to enhance the development of a microfluidic device, then tune into this webinar with Robyn Pritchard from The Technology Partnership (TTP). Cell sorting is a staple of many cell biology labs. The current gold standard, fluorescence-activated cell sorting (FACS), is limited to processing roughly 10,000 cells per second to avoid irreparable damage. For many new advances in cell therapy (e.g., autologous T-cell therapy for cancer), throughput of up to a billion cells in a few hours is essential. TTP set out to break through the current limit by developing a novel microfluidic cell sorter. In this webinar, Robyn will discuss how TTP used the COMSOL Multiphysics® software to design and invent the world’s smallest ultrafast microfluidic cell sorter, where the key discovery was the inertial vortex. Robyn will also show how TTP's simulations correspond to reality with their fully working microfluidic chip. The webinar will include a live demonstration and conclude with a Q&A session.
