 July 19:

Towards lab-on-a-chip for milk adulteration detection

Speaker:  Dr. Viktor Shkolnikov         Researcher at HP Labs



    Economic adulteration of milk is a serious issue that has caused illness in 0.3 million people in 2008 alone. This is made possible by the fact that milk quality is assessed solely on its nitrogen content.

   Currently only a small amount of milk is checked for adulteration as small molecule adulterants are detected via HPLC-MS and GC-MS systems in centralized laboratories, at significant cost in terms of resources, time, and product useful shelf-life. Thus portable, field deployable systems are strongly needed for detection of milk adulteration.

   This talk will focus on directions and challenges of designing such systems and using nano-structures for performing sensing from real samples such as milk. The talk will also discuss efforts at HP Labs to enable such sensing via a nano structured surface enhanced Raman sensor (SERS).



Short Bio:

    Dr. Viktor Shkolnikov is a researcher at HP Labs, where he leads several microfluidics for life sciences projects.

   His research interests include experimental fluid dynamics and transport phenomena (especially micro/nano-fluidics), electrokinetics and electrohydrodynamics, microscale cooling, Lab-on-a-Chip and drug delivery devices, and fluid mechanics as applied to health care and life sciences.

   Viktor Shkolnikov received his Ph.D., M.S., and B.S. all in Mechanical Engineering and all from Stanford University.

 * Please help us manage our event planning. When too many free registrants do not attend, and we have many walk-in attendees ... This makes it difficult for us to order the proper amount of food for lunch.
