A parylene based double-channel micro-electrophoresis system for rapid mutation detection

This paper presents the design and implementation of a double-channel micro-electrophoresis system for rapid mutation detection using heteroduplex analysis (HDA) method. The reported system implements two identical parylene channels located side-by-side, and allows HDA to be performed within a short separation length and time.

An electrostatic parylene microvalve for controlling in plane flow
Yıldırım, Ender; Külah, Haluk (null; 2009-11-01)
This paper presents analysis, implementation, and testing of a new and simple electrostatic microvalve for in-plane flow manipulation. The reported microvalve implements electrostatic pull-in of a parylene diaphragm located parallel to the flow.
A Novel Parameter Identification Toolbox for the Selection of Hyperelastic Constitutive Models from Experimental Data
Dal, Hüsnü; Açıkgöz, Kemal (2017-10-13)
This paper presents a novel parameter identification toolbox based on various multi-objective optimization strategies for the selection of the best constitutive models from a given set of homogeneous experiments. The toolbox aims at providing an objective model selection procedure along with the material parameters for the rubber compound at hand. To this end, we utilize the multi-objective optimization using genetic algorithm of MATLAB. For the validation purposes, we use 10 constitutive laws.
An electromagnetic micro energy harvester based on an array of parylene cantilevers
Sari, Ibrahim; Balkan, Raif Tuna; Külah, Haluk (IOP Publishing, 2009-10-01)
This paper presents the design, optimization and implementation of an electromagnetic type vibration-to-electrical micro energy harvester. The proposed harvester implements a new design employing array of parylene cantilevers on which planar gold coils are fabricated. The micro harvester generates voltage by virtue of the relative motion between the coils and a stationary magnet. The coils are connected electrically in series to sum up the voltage output from individual cantilevers. The number of cantilever...
A MEMS based drug effect analysis system utilizing droplet microfluidics
Özkan, Metin Dündar; Külah, Haluk; Yıldırım, Ender; Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering (2018)
This thesis proposes a fully integrated lab-on-a-chip system designed for drug effect analysis based on the droplet microfluidics. It is mainly designed for screening multi-drug responses of cells in an automated operation. The distinguished feature of the drug screening system is that it includes droplet-based single cell encapsulation. The system includes two main subsystems which are parylene-based and normally closed electrostatic microvalves and droplet generation system. The integration of microvalves...
A Reconfigurable Microfluidic Transmitarray Unit Cell
Erdil, Emre; Topalli, Kagan; Zorlu, Ozge; Toral, Taylan; YILDIRIM, ENDER; KÜLAH, HALUK; Aydın Çivi, Hatice Özlem (2013-04-12)
This paper presents a novel microfluidics based approach to develop a reconfigurable circularly polarized transmitarray unit cell. The unit cell comprises double layer nested split ring slots formed as microfluidic channels that can be filled by fluids. Split regions in the slots are realized by injecting liquid metal into the channels. Beam steering is obtained by implementing rotational phase shifting via manipulating the liquid metal in the slots. X-band unit cell prototypes are fabricated on glass subst...
