Abstract

This work describes the first use of a portable centrifugal microfluidic analysis system (CMAS) for on-site lab-on-a-disc water quality monitoring. The centrifugal microfluidic platform designed for the detection of nitrite in multiple water samples incorporates photo-switchable microvalves, which are easily controlled using white light irradiation. Calibration of the CMAS system resulted in a linear response that obeys the Beer-Lambert Law. Excellent correlation of results between the CMAS device and a standard UV-Vis spectrophotometer were obtained.
