Microwave assisted local heating for biomedical applications


Electronic and Electrical Engineering

About the Project

Many biomedical applications require DNA amplifications and isothermal amplification is a technique used to address these requirements. Currently many research groups around the world are looking into developing low cost, portable and hand held devices for such applications. This project will look into employing microwaves to assist with the isothermal process to significantly reduce the size of portable devices and also to reduce power consumption. Microwave techniques can help to locally heat the reaction mixtures. Brunel is currently developing a smartphone controlled field use instrument to assist with biomedical applications. Interest in electromagnetic modelling and microwave hardware will be useful for this project.
