Microfluidics and printing laboratory

Microfluidics and printing laboratory

The microfluidics and printing activities in the Micro-techniques and Bio-instrumentation group mainly aim to:

  • control the handling of small quantities of fluids of different viscosities to place them on structured surfaces
  • prepare solutions for the treatment and activation of sensitive sensor surfaces
  • print on almost all types of supports (flat or not flat) structured functional layers (such as Kapton, porous PET membrane, ceramic, wood, metal, etc.)
Équipement(s): 

To support this activity, the laboratory has the following equipment, in addition to access to the resources and equipment of the platforms of partner institutions:

  • industrial pad printing machine
  • machine for placing micro-droplets
  • laminar flows and equipment for preparing solutions in clean working zones
  • system for measuring dissolved gases ( e.g. pO2)
  • instruments for characterisation (i.e. viscosity) of small quantities of fluids
