Scale-up and sustainability for Large and Small Microfluidic Laboratories

The rapid translation of research from bench to bedside, as well as the generation of commercial impact, has never been more important for both academic and industrial researchers. Our lab proposes low-capital investment and sustainable rapid-prototyping solutions for almost all LOAC applications, with potential to accelerate microfluidic research and technology acceptance dramatically.
