Active Polymer Surfaces for Control of Fluid Movement

Grant


Scheme


  • Linkage International

Abstract


  • The aim of the project is to develop active polymers that enable interaction with fluids to be controlled in-situ using small (low power) electrical stimuli, hence developing a novel microfluidic management system. These low power devices will have immediate applications in portable diagnostic systems for health, food or environmental monitoring. The applicants are well placed to put in place appropriate commercial arrangements to realise new products in this area in a timely manner.

Date/time Interval
