The Gomez research group is engaged in developing fundamental and applied research in the area of microfluidics. Specifically, we are focused on developing new microfluidic platforms for point-of-care (POC) diagnostic devices, microfluidic batteries (MBs) and fuel cells (MFCs), and chemical and biochemical separations. Current work involves the development of paper microfluidics and enzyme-linked immunosorbent assays (ELISAs) on microfluidic platforms, electrochemical-based assays, enzyme microreactors, novel materials for microfluidics, and chromatography on chips. We also employ response surface methodology (RSM) and artificial neural networks (ANN) to experimentally optimize conditions in microfluidics. The members of the Gomez group include undergraduate and graduate students, high school students, postdoctoral fellows, and visiting scientists, from the fields of chemistry, biochemistry, mechanical and electrical engineering, physics, biology, and mathematics.

Paper Microfluidics

Microfluidic paper analytical devices (µPADs) have great potential as a platform in point-of-care (POC) diagnostic devices and fuel cells. Major reasons for their attractiveness as a substrate for microfluidic devices (MDs) include low cost, compatibility with a plethora of chemical/biochemical reagents and, ability to wick aqueous fluidics without the use of active pumping. Furthermore, paper is thin, available in a variety of thicknesses, lightweight, easy to stack, store, and transport, is compatible with biological samples given its composition (cellulose or blends thereof), easy to chemically modify for functionalization, typically white thereby amenable for colorimetric tests, and is available in many forms with a diverse range of properties. Paper microfluidics is emerging as a multiplexable POC platform that may transcend the capabilities of current assays in settings where resources are limited. We have examined a number of model biochemical systems and have developed a number of new techniques employing µPADs. In addition to further developing new methodologies and examining other biological systems we are also using µPADs in the analysis of environmental and forensic problems. Figure 1 shows representative µPADs developed in our labs.

Thread Microfluidics

Microfluidics-based technologies continue to gain traction as alternatives to traditional techniques and have great potential in resource-limited settings where access to more expensive instrumentation is not always possible. Recently, thread has been found to be a useful matrix for the fabrication of biomedical devices. It has a number of characteristics that make it a viable material as a microfluidic platform: 1) It is inexpensive, widely used, and is readily available. 2) It is lightweight, flexible, and difficult to break. 3) It is usually hydrophilic material or can be made hydrophilic by techniques such as plasma oxidation. 4) Thread can be manipulated easily since it can be knitted or woven. Furthermore, since it can be manipulated this means liquid transport can also be manipulated. 5) It can be functionalized using well-known chemical procedures. We have developed a number of novel microfluidic thread-based analytical devices (µTADs) and thread/paper-based analytical devices (µTPADs) to detect a number of analytes through colorimetric assays using commercially available nylon thread. We feel these devices have the potential for use in healthcare and other industries in both developed and underdeveloped resource-limited regions. Figure 2 is a recently developed glucose assay using thread microfluidics.

Microfluidic Fuel Cells and Batteries

There is a great need to develop efficient and small power sources to operate portable electronic devices. Over the past several years, we have been focused on developing microfluidic fuel cells (MFCs) utilizing methanol, formic acid, and hydrogen. The use of these fuels entails one of the most promising mobile technologies by which such power can be provided. FCs can be considered chemical reactors designed to convert chemical reactant streams into electrical energy and chemical products. Our work is divided between paper MFCs and those built on a poly(dimethylsiloxane) (PDMS) platform. Focus is on optimizing the design of the FCs, catalyst and its loading, including the type of membrane to use, the catalyst loading, the mechanism of catalyst loading onto the membrane, to hot press or not the catalyst, and variations in the design. FIgure 3 displays some of our representative work.

Integration of Modeling in the Optimization of Experimental Parameters in Microfluidics and Capillary Electrophoresis

For several years we have focused and collaborated in applying chemometrics in the optimization of experimental parameters in microfluidics and capillary electrophoresis (CE). The heterogeneity of complex chemical and biological systems raises fundamental difficulties with regard to the ability of investigators to separate and detect analytes of interest, and to correlate variables and predict patterns within samples and differing sample matrices. Fortunately, the recent development of novel learning algorithms, hybrid computational techniques, and gains in raw computing power and speed, has raised several fundamental modeling and simulation research lines to account for these difficulties. Previous work has applied experimental design-based techniques in flow-injection, affinity capillary electrophoresis (ACE) and electrophoretically mediated microanalysis (EMMA). Figure 4 shows some of our recent work.
