Student project: EWOD for sensing

Research & development - Wageningen | More than two weeks ago

You will be part of a team working on emerging sensing technologies for the detection of analytes in plants, humans and environment.

Student project: EWOD for sensing

Electrowetting on dielectric technology (EWOD) is a technology that allows to move fluidic droplets with microliter volumes across an array of electrodes. Electrowetting on dielectric technology (EWOD) is a technology that allows to move fluidic droplets with microliter volumes across an array of electrodes. The technology has the ability to perform complex reactions on the microliter scale by mixing individual droplets followed by analysis techniques like spectroscopy or other compatible analysis techniques.

In this project we want to explore the possibilities of this technologies for sensing compound in fluids. See for example ACS Omega, 04 May 2020, 5(19):11196-11201.

What you will do

  • Perform literature research.
  • Perform EWOD experiments to demonstrate EWOD for sensing in OnePlanet relevant fields of applications.
  • Determine what will be needed to implement the technology in these application.
  • Specify the requirements and specifications.
  • Report on results.

What we do for you

OnePlanet Research Center is a multidisciplinary collaboration between Wageningen University & Research (WUR), Radboud University, Radboud UMC and nano-technology world-player imec. Your work here will not only be of academic relevance, but also translated to practical applications where possible. You will be part of a team where everyone has different backgrounds and subjects of expertise, which makes it fun to exchange perspectives and to work together.

Who you are

  • You are a MSc student in the field of physics, electronics, fluidics or comparable. 
  • You are available for a period of 4-8 months, starting in March or April.
  • You are a team player.
  • Entitled to do an internship in the Netherlands. 
  • Motivated student eager to work independently and expand knowledge in the field.
  • Good written and verbal Dutch skills.
