Description: the grant holder will be involved in the design and development of a number of electronic subsystems of the LoC, featuring the following main functionalities: 1) actuation of microvalves and of a microfluidic typology dubbed “digital microfluidics”, based on the elettrowetting-on-dielectric (EWOD) principle; 2) control of the microheaters of the chambers dedicated to the polymerase chain reaction (PCR); 3) acquisition from sensing photodiode arrays

for specific luminescent detection techniques - bio- and chemi-luminescence; 4) analog signal conditioning; 5) digital sequencing/timing unit which executes the protocols of the LoC and 6) digital signal processing and user interface.

Please note that the full description may be available in the national language since some job boards have their own publication policy. Thank you for your understanding!
