A new teaching and research lab, established in 2014, offers the principles of microfluidics for mixing, moving, of continuous fluidics materials and droplet formation demonstrated by Microfluidics chips. The relationship of fluid behavior with associated fluid mechanics demonstrates how microfluidics technology associates with device performance and applications.
Instrumentation purchased for this lab includes an LED digital microscope for viewing droplet information and mixing of different fluidics materials in provided chips. Other components include a microscope state adaptor kit for edge interface, advanced droplet starter kit, droplet system reagent kit, P-Pump, Sensor Interface and a Flow Rate Sensor and Compressor.
This lab provides adequate space for ME courses such as Introduction to Manufacturing Processes (ME 215), Senior Projects II (ME 392) and Biomedical Devices (ME 442), a
- Graduate-level course
