Research Interest/Area of Expertise

  • Microfluidics, Electrophoretic Separations, Immunoassays

Research

The Linz laboratory is focused on the development of novel lab-on-a-chip technologies capable of performing superior biochemical measurements compared to conventional instrumentation. The microfluidic devices that we design integrate sample preparation/preconcentration and microchip electrophoresis, gel electrophoresis, or immunoassays into a single platform to quantify our analytes of interest. Conducting experiments in this manner allows us to interrogate biological systems with unprecedented detection limits, sampling frequency, and throughput. Our novel bioanalytical strategies are being used to study fundamental biological processes involved in disease pathogenesis to help elucidate biomedical information that cannot be gathered using current state of the art instrumentation.
