Our recent activities: 

1. Professional technical talk by Prof Micheal Pycraft Hughes on 21st April 2017 at UPM.

The talk on “Studying and Sorting Cells and Other Particles using Dielectrophoresis”, has successfully attracted 34 participants from UPM staffs, postgraduates and researchers from other local universities. In his talk, Prof Hughes has comprehensively explained on Dielectrophoresis (DEP) phenomenon, principles and how to manipulate DEP to sort and separate particles.  DEP is a phenomenon that allows direct probing of these properties without the need for chemical labels by exploiting the frequency-dependent interaction of suspended particles with non-uniform electric fields. DEP allows the characterisation of cells and biomolecules on unprecedented timescales, and the separation of cells – label-free and at low cost – at speeds equivalent to the fastest cell sorters.   This talk examined the development of technology to exploit these effects, unlocking for the first time the study of high-speed cellular electrophysiology and cell separation using a novel approach to electrode manufacture – the DEP-well .
