Recent events underscore the importance of rapid diagnostic tests for detecting viruses such as the SARS-CoV-2 coronavirus or for screening for cancer biomarkers. To successfully design a fluidic diagnostic system, engineers must solve a host of physics-based problems, such as fluid flow, chemical species transport, and mixing to successfully design a fluidic diagnostic system.
Using simulations, engineers not only gain a physics-based understanding of the system but can quickly test and optimize new concepts before prototyping, thereby reducing costs and saving time.
In this webinar, we use COMSOL Multiphysics® to understand and optimize the performance of different aspects of diagnostic systems, including chemical concentration gradients, chemical carryover, reagent dissolution, and mixing.
By watching this webinar, you will learn:
- The engineering fundamentals of problems involving chemical transport, mixing, concentration gradients, chemical carryover, and reagent dissolution
- Considerations for choosing parameters and optimizing performance for such problems
- How to use the powerful Java™-programming features in COMSOL Multiphysics®
