Our lab, in collaboration with GTRI and other labs at Georgia Tech (David Hu Lab, Eric Vogel Lab, food and Processing) is developing the next generation sensor for Weapons of Mass Destruction (WMD). This deployable device will collect air particulate and provide crucial WMD agent identification, location and concentration information vital to battlefield decision making. We are bridging our microfluidics expertise for the filtration aspect of the project and look for the projects’ applications in other areas such as point-of-care diagnostics, pollution control, among others.
