Bashir Laboratory of Integrated Biomedical Micro/Nanotechnology and Applications (LIBNA), Discovery Park School of Electrical and Computer Engineering, Weldon School of Biomedical Engineering, Purdue University, West Lafayette, Indiana 1Key Topics • Biochips/Biosensors and Device Fabrication • Cells, DNA, Proteins • Micro-fluidics • Biochip Sensors & Detection Methods • Micro-arrays • Lab-on-a-chip Devices Cells Bacteria Viruses Proteins DNA Molecules 2Definitions • BioMEMS are biomedical or biological applications of MEMS (micro electro mechanical systems) • BioNanotechnology is biological applications of nanotechnology (science and technology of miniaturization at scales of 100nm) 3BioMEMS and Bionanotechnology Apply micro/nano-technology to develop novel devices and systems that have a biomedical impact or are bio-inspired Micro/Nanotechnology and Systems Biology & Biomedicine Novel Solutions for Novel Solutions for Frontiers in Medicine Frontiers in Materials and Biology and Information 4 ProcessingOn Size and Scale Top-down 100µm Plant and Animal Cells 10µm MEMS Micro-fluidics Molecular Most Bacteria Devices Molecule- & Specific Memory 1µm MEMS/ Sensors NEMS 2-D CMOS platform 100nm Min Feature Virus of MOS-T (in 2004) 10nm Integrated Proteins One Helical Turn of DNA BioChips (Macro, Micro, 1nm Gate Insulator Nano) for 100nm MOS-T Atoms 0.1nm Bottoms-Up 5 Feature Size MicroElectronics Nanoscale functional & MEMS elementsMore Definitions • Biosensors are ‘analytical devices that combine a biologically sensitive element with a physical or chemical transducer to selectively and quantitatively detect the presence of specific compounds in a given external environment’ Vo-Dinh and Cullum, 2000. • Biochips can be defined as ‘microelectronic-inspired devices that are used for delivery, processing, analysis, or detection of biological molecules and species’ Bashir, 2004. These devices are used to detect cells, microorganisms, viruses, proteins, DNA and related nucleic acids, and small molecules of biochemical importance and interest. 6Overview of Biosensor System Data Analysis/ Sample Processing/ Detection/ Results Separation ID • Water • Food • Air • Body Fluids 7Introduction Key Attributes of Biochips 1. Small length scale 2. Small thermal mass 3. Laminar flow, Re 1 4. High surface-to-volume ratio W.J. Chang, D. Akin, M. Sedlek, M. Ladisch, R. Bashir, Biomedical Microdevices, vol. 5, no. 4, pp. 281-290, 2003. Whitesides Harvard University 8Reasons for Miniaturization • In general, the use of micro and nano-scale detection technologies is justified by, – (i) reducing the sensor element to the scale of the target species and hence providing a higher sensitivity à single entity/molecule – (ii) reduced reagent volumes and associated costs, – (iii) reduced time to result due to small volumes resulting in higher effective concentrations, – (iv) amenability of portability and miniaturization of the entire system – (v) point-of-care diagnostic, – (vi) Multi-agent detection capability – (vii) Potential for use in vitro as well as in vivo 9Biochips for Detection • Applications o Medicine o Pharmaceuticals o Food Safety o Homeland Security, etc. • Integrated, Sensitive, Rapid, Cost x Performance • Commercialized; Nanogen, Affymetrix, Caliper, Others….
