This lab shows the importance of channel design in biotechnology and nanotechnology and the methods used to study the behavior of fluids as they flow through a channel. Students will create and test a microfluidic device by creating narrow channels in gelatin, injecting dye in the...
Lab on a Slab: Microfluidics Activity
13 Jan 2020 | | Contributor(s):: John Gomm, NNCI Nano
Microfluidics is a technique for manipulating liquid samples. With one drop of liquid sample, small devices and channels can be used with nanoparticles for sensitive detection of chemicals. In this lab, students will create a fluidic device with agar gel and use it to test and diagnose three...
Soft Electronic and Microfluidic Systems for the Skin
23 May 2019 | | Contributor(s):: John A. Rogers
This talk describes the key ideas, and presents some of the most recent device examples, including wireless, skin-like electronic 'tattoos' for continuous monitoring of vital signs in neonatal intensive care, microfluidic/electronic platforms that can capture, store and perform...
The Interfacial Chemistry of Organic Aerosols and Cloud Droplets
10 May 2019 | | Contributor(s):: Kevin R. Wilson

Bottom Filled Mold
07 Apr 2019 | | Contributor(s):: Matthew John M. Krane
Calculation of mold filling times, with and without a constant height of metal in a riser. Problem uses modified Bernoulli equation for the mechanical energy balance and the students are asked to determine which resistances are significant.
Droplet Microfluidics for High-Throughput Chemical Analysis and Experimentation
04 Apr 2019 | | Contributor(s):: Robert Kennedy
Manipulating samples as droplets within microfluidic devices has emerged as an interesting approach for chemical analysis and screening. In segmented flow, one embodiment of this technology, nanoliter samples are manipulated in microfluidic channels as plugs separated by an immiscible fluid, such...
