PhD thesis defense Ye Tang

Congratulations to Ye Tang, doctoral student at the ARTORG Organs-on-Chip Laboratory and the Swiss Center for Electronics and Microtechnology (CSEM), for her successful PhD thesis defense on 28 June 2021! Ye has investigated “Nanocellulose applications in biosensing devices” as a joint PhD project of the ARTORG Center and CSEM. Her thesis has demonstrated the potential of nanocellulose-based materials as an emerging nanomaterial to fabricate simple, cost-effective, disposable optical/electrochemical analytical devices for several (bio)sensing applications of point-of-care diagnostics.

Schematic comparison between a conventional LFIA strip design (A) and the CNF aerogel-assisted LFIA strip design (B). (C) The integration of the CNF aerogel leads to an extended sample flow time and, hence, a more efficient binding between the target analyte and the detection antibody with higher assay sensitivity.
