There is a growth of social concern for personal health, medical services by improved quality of life like increase of population
and aging issues. However, medical services utilizing the existing large medical facilities generate a high costs. Also, it is
difficult to receive the provision of quality health care services from personal medical facilities. In comparison, diagnostics
cost cheaper, easy access to public and user friendly. Therefore, society shows higher interest in health center, particularly in
the aspect of diagnostics. In this field, many of laboratories are developing a microfluidics chip for diagnostics. Reaction time
for each disease is different and current microfluidics chip research cannot detect various diseases by one chip. Therefore, the
microfluidics chip equipped with control system is inevitable in order for a sufficient immune reaction between antigen and
antibody for various diseases detection at test zone in channel, various flow velocities. Here, we suggest a flow controllable
system. Control of flow velocities are measured and controlled by integrated system equipped with light source and pneumatic
valve. We have demonstrated the developed system could be easily controlled for diseases detection and programmed proper
algorithm using the labview.
Eundoo Lee completed his BS from Kangwon University and is studying Mechanical Engineering at Korea University. He has experience in the diagnostics field at Boditech Med, a health care company. His patent is pending for flow velocity measurement and control. He has also published papers in microfluidics journals about flow velocity control.
