  • Substrates (JZ)

- Try glass fixture.

  • Colloid experiment.

- Do Rhodamine.
-Need a size specific positive control. PS beads? charged?

† Valve Array/Valve building.

  • Parts missing. Check with Susan.
  • Writing a new control interface.

† Fraunhofer: LOAC

  • Paper drafting!

† Biointerfaces group

  • Final experiments were done.
  • counting the number of trapped cells
  • adding experimental results in the draft paper.

† CIMIT- Colson Grant

  • IRB still in revision.


  • surface coating of zeonex, looking for an effective way to verify the PEG layer
  • tried contact angle, device is still broken
  • SEM showed no pattern on the plain zeonex without plasma treatment
