Register Now: Summer Workshop in Microfluidic Device Fabrication

Posted by on Wednesday, January 12, 2022 in Events, News.

Microfluidic devices can enable “labs on chips” that consume less reagents and have faster analysis times than similar experiments performed in a traditional lab environment.  Applications of microfluidic devices include portable sensors for point-of-care analysis, molecular and cell biology studies, and high-throughput multiplexed assays.  This short course will introduce the techniques behind the fabrication of microfluidic devices.  It will be structured to assume no prior knowledge of the technologies by the participants.  It will include an overview of microfabrication and microfluidics, photolithography, soft lithography, polymers, microfluidic device design, and microfluidic device applications.  Students will fabricate a PDMS-glass microfluidic device inside the VINSE cleanroom with sessions broken down into SU-8 mold fabrication, PDMS mixing and pouring, and device cutting, bonding and testing.   Cost:   $150 Vanderbilt Users; $150 External Academic and Non-Profit Users; $600 Industry and For-Profit Users
