The lab has developed an expertise in microfluidics applied to cellular biology since 2006. It is now fully equipped to perform:
-standard lithography (aligner Suss-MJB4, spin-coater, programmable heating plates)
-Soft lithography (with PDMS and NOA resins)
-Glass microfabrication (HF etching, programmable oven for bonding, sandblaster to dig holes)
-Optical microscopy lithography with system PRIMO, Alveole (https://www.alveolelab.com)
Microfluidics has instrumental in the lab to perform pioneering quantitative measurements of single cell rheology, diagnostic assays of acute respiratory distress syndrome, migration assays under flow.
