Edinburgh Microfluidics Prototyping
Microfluidic technology has gained significant popularity over the last decade due to its many advantages as an enabling technology. It is now widely used in various research areas including, among others: chemical synthesis (including DNA); studies of chemical reactions; cell culture and manipulation; fluid dynamics; and medical diagnostics.
The EMP aims to provide low cost design and fabrication of microfluidic systems for academic researchers across The University of Edinburgh.
