Sensors and Microfluidics

The group is led by Dr Ruchi Gupta. Our research is focused on developing point-of-use, wearable, and implantable sensors and microfluidics (SAM) systems to measure biochemical markers for timely and accurate diagnosis of diseases, which is a first step towards offering right treatment at the right time. The information collected by these SAM systems can be used to create feedback loops for fully optimised treatments tailored towards individual patients. We are also developing SAM systems for water monitoring.

Our research is highly interdisciplinary combining chemistry, physics, biology, and engineering to develop novel SAM systems.

We are based in the Haworth building at the University of Birmingham.
