Advanced Molecular Sequencing For Qualitative And Quantitative Environmental Analyses

2019/20 • $150,000 • PI,CO
In Canada, an estimated 17 billion liter/day of municipal wastewater 780,000 dry tonnes of sludge/biosolids were generated in 2015 from municipal wastewater plants (serving 25 million Canadians). The Canadian livestock also consumes more than 1.6 million kilograms of antibiotics every year,...

Microfluidic Platforms for Biological Investigations

2014/15-2019/20 • $138,000 • PI
Microfabricated Lab-On-a-Chip (LOC) devices are being applied to a wide range of biological studies on cells, tissues, organs and whole biological systems, e.g. the worm (C. elegans) and the fruit fly (Drosophila). Due to their many advantages, whole biological systems offer cost-effective and...

Microfluidic Sample Preparation Device for Environmental DNA Separation and Washing **********

2018/19 • $25,000 • PI
Detection of environmental DNA (eDNA), excreted from organisms into the environment at very low concentrations, has emerged as a powerful method for identification of dangerous or at-risk species in aquatic systems. Precision Biomonitoring (PBI) offers a ground-breaking technology for detection...

Bacteria detection in milk using a portable microfluidic system

2016/17 • $25,000 • PI
Microbial contamination of milk is of utmost concern to human health in the dairy industry. Strict regulations call for low-cost, rapid,and on-site screening of milk for microbial contamination at the point of milk acquisition and consumption. Dairy Quality Inc. is acompany that provides dairy...

An non-planar microfluidic cooling device for body weight loss and obesity prevention in rat models

2015/16 • $25,000 • PI
The human body at early developmental stages produces white and brown fat tissues. Brown fat cells (Brown Adipose Tissues (BAT)) are used for keeping specific regions of the body warm via thermogenic activities (i.e., metabolic burning of brown fat to heat). The idea of stimulating the body to...

A label-free thermoelectric reader for quantitative interpretation of results from single- and multi-test lateral flow assay devices

2014/15 • $25,000 • PI
The research and development that will be carried out in this project is to resolve an important problem withautomated, quantitative and label-free interpretation of results from Lateral Flow Assay (LFA) devices such asthe home-used pregnancy test strips. LFA devices have gained great popularity...

Portable and passive miniaturized pump for drug infusion

2014/15 • $25,000 • PI
Intravenous gravity pumps are used to deliver vital body fluids (blood, saline, etc) and high risk medication. These infusion pumps consist of an infusion bag containing the sample fluid mounted on a pole. Although these gravity pumps are used in hospitals, home care settings and emergency...
