DCC Webinar: Improving microsampling of blood and plasma with paper-based microfluidic devices
 12/12/2023 15:00 - 16:00 
Welcome to the Digital Cellulose Center’s online seminar on Improving microsampling of blood and plasma with paper-based microfluidic devices with Charles Mace from Tufts University on December 12th, 15:00 CET. 

During the seminar, Charles Mace from Tufts University will share his view of paper-based microfluidic devices for MedTech and health. Approaches that enable patient-centric microsampling have the potential to address challenges with transporting blood samples from remote sites to clinical laboratories. However, the development of these technologies, typified by the century-old dried blood spot card, has not kept pace with the clinical need or emerging capabilities of modern laboratory medicine. 

With expertise in paper-based microfluidics, Charles Mace and colleagues have designed devices to close these gaps by providing stable and metered samples of dried blood and plasma. The researchers anticipate that these capabilities will reduce global disparities in access to healthcare, provide increased agency to patients desiring more information about their health status, and support ongoing advances in telemedicine.

The Digital Cellulose Center (DCC) is a Vinnova competence center with the vision to make cellulose-based products an integral part of a sustainable, digital society. The environment aims to provide expertise and infrastructure for industry-driven, excellent R&D in the field of Digital Cellulose-based products, contributing to increased growth of the Swedish industry. The DCC includes the academic partners RISE, Linköping University (LiU), and Royal Institute of Technology (KTH), together with a large group of companies representing areas such as electroactive materials, paper and pulp, packaging and conversion as well as electrical applications and energy storage.
