We have recently demonstrated the isolation and trapping of double stranded lambda-DNA in a
microfluidic chip by means of electrophoresis (EP) and dielectrophoresis (DEP) .
The purpose of this project is to develop a fluidic chip combining micro- and nanofluidic
structures with integrated electrodes in order to achieve the electrical
detection of DNA
translocation (Coulter counter principle). Such device will eventually be combined with our
existing microfluidic system.
