Welcome to the website of Professor Masoud Agah's research group at Virginia Tech. Research at VT MEMS Lab currently centers on the development of three-dimensional micromachining techniques, micro gas analyzers for environmental and healthcare applications, biochips for cell analysis, cancer diagnosis, and cancer treatment monitoring, and biochips for pathogen detection in water.
- 3D insulator-based dielectrophoresis using DC-biased, AC electric fields for selective bacterial trapping
- An Integrated Chromatography Chip for Rapid Gas Separation and Detection
- Characterization of a micro-helium discharge detector for gas chromatography
- Apoorva Garg successfully defended his MS thesis on Zebra GC. Congratulations Apoorva :)
- Drs Agah and Strobl won a 3-year NSF award to develop a single-cell analyzer using microfluidic technology. The project is aimed at identifying breast cancer cell properties.
