Lab Overview

The Henry Group is affiliated with the Department of Chemistry at Colorado State University. The focus of the group’s work is to develop microfluidic devices (Lab-on-a-Chip systems) for applications in environmental monitoring and biosensors. Current research projects include the development of paper-based and polymer-based microfluidic systems for colorimetric and electrochemical quantification of biologically- and environmentally-relevant analytes. Major techniques used in the Henry Group include microfabrication, chromatography, electrochemistry, and electrophoresis. Detailed information about current research projects can be found on the Research page.
