Nanofluidic transistors and nanofluidic diodes are proposed for manipulating aqueous solutions and biomolecules at the nanoscale. The successful development of such systems has significant implications for technologies focusing on water purification, the processing of complicated biological solutions, and energy conversion and storage.
Nanofluidics is the study and application of fluid flow in channels/pores with at least one characteristic dimension less than 100 nm.High specific surface area means higher heat transfer surface between particles and fluids. High particle dispersion stability with predominant Brownian motion
The Global Nanofluidic pump market accounted for $XX Billion in 2022 and is anticipated to reach $XX Billion by 2030, registering a CAGR of XX% from 2023 to 2030.
This nanofluidic pump is well suited for a variety of medical applications, such as fluid withdrawal or therapeutic delivery via a parenteral implant in a human patient.
Pharmaceutical companies may be interested in taking advantage of the pump’s potential to do micro-invasive label-free liquid biopsies by studying disease start and progression in animal models of human illnesses. This could lead to the discovery of new biomarkers for human disease and the development of novel therapeutic medications.
Similarly, pharmaceutical and medical device businesses may seek to use this pump for parenteral delivery of extremely low amounts of therapeutic medications, allowing for accurate individualised dosing with minimal off-target effects.
This pump has potential applications outside of the biomedical field as well. A variety of industries rely on microfluidic and nanofluidic devices, and this pump can drive bidirectional flow within such devices with great precision while maintaining its compact design and small physical footprint.
The current technique is a peristaltic pump that allows for nanoliter precision bidirectional fluid flow. The pump is made up of a succession of nickel titanium alloy (nitinol) wire actuators that control fluid flow within a tube or channel.
Achieves exact bidirectional fluid flow of modest volumes. Capable of both therapeutic delivery and liquid biopsies The use of an MRI-compatible pump composition allows for compatibility with medical imaging modalities. The slim-profile design allows for immediate miniaturisation for long-term implantation.
The pump can be constructed and utilised in either implanted or wearable form, with a wearable detachable form preferred for pump designs that include control circuits or batteries that are not MRI-compatible.
