About BMND Lab

Biomedical Micro/Nano Device Lab at Texas Tech University focuses on developing transnational biomedical platforms for lab automation, point-of-care diagnostics and biomimetic tissue engineering by using microfuidic and biosensing technqiues. By using microvalve and pumps system, an universal fluid processor enables the automation of the basic fluidic operations such as metering, mixing, washing, and reacting to achieve totally automated assays. For the biomarker detection, we have been developed the carbon nanotube (CNT) biosensor for pathogen detection, automated microfluidic immunoassay platform by combinding the complementary metal-oxide-semiconductor (CMOS)-based biosensor for rapid and portable diagnostics. We also conducted several tissue engineering and biomechanics research projects such as measuring mechanical properties of trabecular bone, developing finite element models of bone biomechanics, as well as determining osteogenic response of osteoblast cell within 3-D scaffolds.


* Collaborative works with UC Berkeley (Autonomous Mars Organic Analyzer) was published in Analytical Chemistry (IF: 5.86).

* Collaborative works with UC Santa Cruz will be presented  in CLEO 2013Title: Hybrid Optofluidic Device for Fluidic Particle Manipulation and Detection.

* Our paper in Advanced Drug Delivery Reviews (IF: 12.89) is now available online.

* Dr. Kim received "Best Professor Award" from Pi Tau Sigma.
