    The blood typing test is mandatory in any transfusion, organ transplant, and pregnancy situation. There is a lack of point-of-care (POC) blood typing that could perform both direct and indirect methods using a single droplet ...
  • Hemostasis-on-a-chip: Impedance spectroscopy meets microfluidics for hemostasis evaluation 

    Karimi, Shadi; Farré Lladós, Josep; Mir Fuertes, Enrique; Escolar Albaladejo, Ginés; Casals Terré, Jasmina (2019-08-14)
    Article
    Open Access
    In the case of vascular injury, a complex process (of clotting) starts, involving mainly platelets and coagulation factors. This process in healthy humans is known as hemostasis, but when it is deregulated (thrombosis), ...
  • Enhanced fully cellulose based forward and reverse blood typing assay 

    Casals Terré, Jasmina; Farré Lladós, Josep; López Martínez, Joan Antoni; Vidal Lluciá, Teresa; Roncero Vivero, María Blanca (2019-05-07)
    Article

    This study presents an enhanced paper-based analytical device (PAD) for forward and reverse group blood typing. The proposed PAD uses a novel methodology, which provides highly reliable results on a fully cellulose based ...
  • Optimal machining strategy selection in ball-end milling of hardened steels for injection molds 

    Buj Corral, Irene; Ortiz Marzo, José Antonio; Costa Herrero, Lluís; Vivancos Calvet, Joan; Luis Pérez, Carmelo Javier (Multidisciplinary Digital Publishing Institute (MDPI), 2019-03-01)
    Article
    Open Access
    In the present study, the groups of cutting conditions that minimize surface roughness and its variability are determined, in ball-end milling operations. Design of experiments is used to define experimental tests performed. ...
  • Novel applications of nonwood cellulose for blood typing assays 

    Casals Terré, Jasmina; Farré Lladós, Josep; Zuñiga, Allinson; Roncero Vivero, María Blanca; Vidal Lluciá, Teresa (2018-10-03)
    Article
    Open Access
    Paper-based microfluidics devices can create a new healthcare model. Cellulose is carbohydrate polymer biocompatible and hydrophilic. These characteristics enhance the development of user-friendly diagnostic devices, but ...
  • Novel variable radius spiral-shaped micromixer: from numerical analysis to experimental validation 

    Mehrdel, Pouya; Karimi, Shadi; Farré Lladós, Josep; Casals Terré, Jasmina (2018-10-27)
    Article
    Open Access
    A novel type of spiral micromixer with expansion and contraction parts is presented in order to enhance the mixing quality in the low Reynolds number regimes for point-of-care tests (POCT). Three classes of micromixers ...
