We are developing a new generation of devices for continuous chemical and nano-particle purification, based on the interactions of analyte with multiple types of driving forces in an electro-fluid-dynamic system. The two-dimensional electrofluid-dynamic (2-D EFD) devices, in which both electric field and hydrodynamic pressure are simultaneously utilized in 2-D channel networks to drive the mass transfer, provide better control on the analyte molecules or nanoparticles by simply adjusting the magnitude of pressure. Mixed analytes can be separated based on this theory.
The success of this project will help the partner organization to accelerate their drug development and decrease their budget. Once matured, this device also has great potential to be a good platform to study drug-cell interactions.
