This thesis presents a fabrication process for medical microfluidic devices that is performed with purely silicon microfabrication methods, which is a better option for mass-production than commonly used soft lithography. The fluids passing through the channels of a microfluidic device that is fabricated using this developed method can be...

The closed bus-tie configuration in marine power system is a good method to help the vessel owners to decrease fuel consumption. However, when the vessel is running under closed bus-tie configuration, excitation system faults and prime mover faults can trigger a blackout on the vessel. This master thesis is to design a system to detect the...

The goals of this graduation project are to introduce and prove the concept of an Acoustically Induced Microenvironment (AIM), and feature the application of Capacitive Micro machined Ultrasonic Transducers (CMUTs) in microfluidics. AIMs are conceived as a series of building blocks for more complex systems where the driving technology is...

Over the last few years the need of new alternatives to traditional disease modelling, drug screening and toxicity tests has boosted the development of a new class of devices called Organ on Chip. These usually consist in a substrate or a well in which cells are cultured with the aim of differentiating them in a particular tissue lineage. With...

Organs on chips are a novel set of devices whose aim is to mimic cellular in-vivo conditions of the human physiology within a microchip. The need of reliable disease models, particularly for the development of pharmaceutical drugs, has drawn increased attention as the current widespread models; static cell cultures and animal tests, have proven...

An organ-on-chip device, called Cytostretch (Philips NV), that is capable of mechanically stimulating cultured cells, is the subject of this study. The device comprises a microthin PolyDiMethylSiloxane membrane that is highly elastic, on which titanium nitride electrodes have been embedded. Its utility is projected in cardiac research to emulate...

In the near future, human cell based Organ-on-Chip models are likely to replace animal experimentation during the development of new drugs. Not only is animal testing associated with ethical issues, but human cell based models can also give a more accurate representation of the human physiology, resulting in more reliable results of drug...

An intermodal container transportation network is being developed between Rotterdam and several inland terminals in North West Europe. This EUROPEAN GATEWAY SERVICES (EGS) network enables an integrated network transport between 7 inland terminals and 3 Rotterdam seaports. To use this network cost-efficiently, a more integrated planning of the...

Age-Related Macular Degeneration (AMD) is a degenerative condition of the macula, which results in a loss of vision. AMD is a common contributor to vision loss in adults over the age of 50. In Western countries, AMD affects nearly 30% of the individuals over the age of 75. In the Rotterdam Eye Hospital an experimental surgical procedure has been...

As a innovation therapy for prostate cancer, HIFU device can heat and destroy tissue rapidly and precisely. In this project, we try to find a suitable way to integrate water cooling in a micro fabricated HIFU device, to remove unwanted heat and ensure proper functionality of the medical device. The water cooling is implemented by etching a...

The euro currency is facing a crisis which raises doubts about Euro-trade area survival (Barber, 2010). Among the European Union member states, Southern European countries (including Ireland), currently face a difficult economic situation (Barber, 2010). There is evidence of a large gap between ‘North’ and ‘South’ Europe in terms of trade...

The aim of this thesis project is to design and fabricate a high efficiency on chip cooling device based on the Peltier effect. Bismuth telluride (Bi2Te3) and antimony telluride (Sb2Te3) are employed to form thermocouple for their high Seebeck coefficient and high figure of merit. The models of the devices are simulated in the software program...

Cardiotoxicity is a common side-effect of drugs and a major cause of late-stage drug rejections, costing the pharmaceutical companies massive amounts of money. A drug is cardiotoxic when it has a negative influence on the heart. Often, it changes the electrophysiological characteristics of the heart, resulting in arrhythmia. This can have...
