Microfluidics is a new and constantly evolving technology of designing and manufacturing devices which can control and manipulate the flow of fluids measured in the microliter/nanoliter range.
Mirofluidics allows you to:
- Perform multiple operations in a small volume:“lab-on-a-chip”.
- Control the environment of a single cell or part of a cell.
- Precisely control external reagents
- Pattern substrates for cells to grow
- Droplet generation and manipulation
- Cell sorting, cytometry.
The HMS microfluidics Core Facility aims to provide space and the equipment to design, fabricate and conduct experiments with micro-fluidic devices to the research community of Harvard University and affiliated institutions. Additionally, provide training, technical and scientific assistance to users in order to ensure success in their projects.
