|Highly efficient sample stacking by enhanced field amplification on a simple paper device|
Petra is Associate Professor for Bioanalytics at the Department of Biosystems Science and Engineering. Her research in the field of lab-on-chip-technologies focuses on the miniaturization of high-sensitivity devices for chemical and biological analyses, and microfluidic-aided organization of materials.
Petra’s research group develop miniaturized devices (lab-on-chip technology or microfluidics) for applications in the life sciences. Their interdisciplinary approach combines chemical, physical, biological and engineering aspects of microfluidics-based technology. You can find out more about her research on her homepage: http://www.dittrich.ethz.ch/

The 6th Workshop on Microfluidics was held at the Convention Center of UNICAMP (State University of Campinas) in Campinas, Sao Paulo (Brazil), from 20-22 July, 2016. Since 2011, the workshop has brought together young students, researchers, and companies from different states of Brazil to discuss topics related to fundamentals, fabrication technologies, innovations, and applications in microfluidic science. This field has been spread out around different regions of Brazil presenting outstanding contributions for microfabrication and microfluidic technologies.
The event was supported by the Royal Society of Chemistry for the fourth time. Prof Dosil P. de Jesus (UNICAMP), member of the 6th Workshop on Microfluidics scientific board, presented the poster competition awards, sponsored by the Royal Society of Chemistry’s Lab on a Chip and Analytical Methods journals.
The winner of the Analytical Methods Poster Competition was Gabriela B. Almeida, from State University of Campinas, for her work “Microfluidic Devices Combining Dielectrophoresis Trapping and Surface Enhanced Raman Spectroscopy”.
Gabriela F. Giordano, from The Brazilian Nanotechnology National Laboratory (LNNano), Campinas, was the winner of the Lab on a Chip Poster Competition for her work “Gravity-Assisted Distillation on a Chip: a Novel Concept for Sample Preparation in Microfluidics”.
