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.
- Semipacked columns with atomic layer deposited alumina as a stationary phase
- Zebra GC: a Fully Integrated Micro Gas Chromatography System
- Analyses of single-cell mechanoelectrical properties via microfluidics
- 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.
