Workshop

A one-day course and workshop on
On-chip molecular diagnostics
Sept 22, 2010, Biyani Girls College, Jaipur
(a part of 5th Indo-Japan International Symposium on ‘Innovative Molecular Approaches in Global Health Research’ Sept 20-22)

Objective:

On-chip process integrates one or several laboratory functions on a single chip with a size of few millimeters square to a few centimeters square. The aim of this workshops is to spark the new innovations in on-chip molecular diagnostics that are not satiated by text books but by practicing using learning-by-doing approach. This workshop is specially designed for those who are at the verge of choosing their carrier path in field of bio-medical or health-care research.

How this experience will contribute to your success?
This Workshop will allow the candidates face to face with the fastest emerging new technologies and provides them valuable hands-on experience under the guidance of experts and professionals. All the participants will be provided a certificate of the course and would be able to apply as a research candidate in on-going Indo-Japan research projects under the supervision of technology experts.
How will the programme of the Workshop help you achieve your Goal?

On-chip technology may soon become an important part of efforts to improve global health. Many global challenges must be overcome when chip is to be used in limited resources area. In developed countries, sensitivity, specificity and speed of diagnosis is considered. But in countries with less developed health diagnostic attributes like shelf life must also be considered. The tools are designed in a way so that they remain effective for months even if the chip is not kept in a controlled environment. Also these chips are cost effective and recyclable.
OC may provide advantages, which are specific to their application. Typical advantages are:-

  • Faster analysis and response times due to short diffusion distances, fast heating, high surface to volume ratios, small heat capacities.
  • Better process control because of a faster response of the system (e.g. thermal control of exothermic chemical reactions)
  • Compactness of the systems due to integration of much functionality and small volumes
  • Massive parallelization due to compactness, which allows high-throughput analysis
  • Lower fabrication costs, allowing cost-effective disposable chips, fabricated in mass production
  • Safer platform for different  biological studies because of combination of functionality, smaller fluid volumes and stored energies
  •  By Immunoassay detection of cancer cells and bacteria by antigen and antibody reaction
