Development of Wireless sensors using microfabrication techniques

The goal of the partnership is to develop new wireless pressure and torque sensors for commercial applications, transfer knowledge to industry to commercialize research advances, and train new highly trained personnel (HQP) with skills sought after in Canada’s growing high tech sector. The industrial partner, EPIC Semiconductors, develops new innovative technologies for customers so that they can gain a competitive advantage in their industries. EPIC Semiconductors currently does not have a cleanroom facility. Through the proposed partnership between EPIC Semiconductors and Dr.

Towards a lab-on-a-chip-based rapid-screening system for pathogens

In light of the recent outbreak of Covid-19, it is urgent to find a solution for quick and efficient pathogen detection and elimination. Rapid point-of-need diagnostic tests and monitoring devices are urgently required in order to provide testing and care to those infected. Currently, testing is performed at centralized facilities using specialized equipment for molecular-based pathogen detection.
