Domenico Caputo, an associate professor at the University of Rome “La Sapienza”, will take part at MIPRO 2020 by holding an invited lecture „Thin Film Technology Meets Lab-on-chip System“ within the special session Optoelectronics and Photonics /OPHO.
As Prof. Caputo’s present research interest is focused on the development of thin film photodetector and Lab-on-Chip device for DNA and mycotoxin detection, he will present the work that has been done with a group of researchers at the Department of Information Engineering, Electronics and Telecommunications of the University of Rome “La Sapienza” in developing a multifunctional optoelectronic platform which includes several thin film devices on a single glass substrate. In particular, the platform integrates amorphous silicon photo-sensors for on-chip detection and temperature control and optical filters for selection of specified wavelength. By coupling this platform with a microfluidic network application in the field of mycotoxin detection and DNA amplification will be presented.
Lab-on-Chip technology is gaining great interest due to the many possibilities that it offers in the fields of life sciences, from parallel analysis in genomics to point-of-care devices in medical diagnostics. At the beginning, Lab-on-Chip devices essentially consisted of a microfluidic network that miniaturized the analytical procedures leading to faster reaction kinetics and lower sample and reagents consumption. Recent devices integrate on a single substrate several functional modules that allow all the functions of a human-scale test laboratory including transferring samples, drawing off a precise volume of a chemical product, reagent mixing, detection and quantification of biomolecules.
