7:00 PM: Presentation
The demise of the typical microscope may be fast approaching. Microfluidics is a technology that manipulates fluids in channels that vary in width from nanometers to millimeters. The applications for this technology are wide ranging. The attractiveness of this technique spans the fields of biology, medicine, chemistry, physics and engineering. The mediums used to create these platforms or “lab on a chip” are as well varied. Uses of paper, glass, silicon, plastics and metals have been shown to produce accurate and cost effective results. Combined with electronics as sensors the field is ready for production of cost effective products to better understand the sciences of the future. We will discuss these topics in this talk.
