De, Guzman Peter Patrick, Liu Wayne Po Wen, Yi Brandon Uichong, Kim Chang Jin: Biosensor detection by means of droplet driving, agitation, and evaporation. Core Microsolutions, de, Guzman Peter Patrick, Liu Wayne Po Wen, Yi Brandon Uichong, Kim Chang Jin, KIRCHANSKI Stefan J, December 28, 2006: WO/2006/138543 (71 worldwide citation)

Methods of improving microfluidic assays are disclosed. Assays can be improved (better signal to noise ratio) by using sessile drop evaporation as an analyte concentration step (enhanced signal) and repeated passes of wash droplets as a means to reduce non-specific binding (noise reduction). In addi ...

Comstock Bob, Wang Mei Yin, Lim Nelly: Process for solubilization of flavor oils. Comstock Bob, Wang Mei Yin, Lim Nelly, KIRCHANSKI Stefan J, April 3, 2008: WO/2008/039564 (7 worldwide citation)

The inventive process allows the solubilization of flavor oil in water to produce clear beverages. The amount of emulsifier required for oil solubilization is less than that of oil, and a typical oil to emulsifier ratio is 2:1. A crude emulsion is first generated by high shear mixing of the emulsifi ...
