Liquid-Infused Surface Manipulation of Biological Samples

Operating in austere and resource-limited settings present unique challenges for handling biological samples. Low-cost solutions to preparing biological samples for detection and analysis have been at the forefront of funding agencies for the past decade. Our lab leverages the antifouling nature of liquid-infused surfaces with inexpensive paper-based systems to manipulate biological samples.
