Welcome to the Microfluidics Laboratory! Microfluidics is the science and technology of fluids at the micro-scale. We provide space and equipment to design, fabricate and conduct experiments with micro-fluidic devices. These devices, also called "lab-on-a-chip", are used to study biological processes and automate bio-chemical assays among other applications.
We are open to anyone interested in this technology, and a core facility of the Princeton Physical Sciences Oncology Center. Our goal is to make microfluidic (and microfabrication) technology broadly accessible to researchers and students. The laboratory consists of three parts - a clean room for photo-lithography and micro-fabrication, a microscopy room for experiments, and a design room for CAD design.

Funding for this facility is currently provided by Princeton University (including PRISM, Physics Department, Lewis-Sigler Institute for Integrative Genomics, Molecular Biology, Chemistry, Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering, and Chemical and Biological Engineering). The facility was set up using a grant from the National Cancer Institute Physical Sciences-Oncology Program.
