New Tools, New Possibilities – 3D Printing for Lab-on-a-Chip

Diagnostic technologies rely heavily on our tools. If we want new possibilities, we need to create new tools. In this video from TED TalksGreg Nordin speaks about his research in new breakthrough methods for microfluidic devices. He considered 3D printing but found that commercial printers and materials could not fabricate feature sizes that are in the truly microfluidic regime (<100 μm).

New Integrated Systems in Microfluidics

The University of Hertfordshire’s Microfluidics & Microengineering Research Group produces microfluidics-enabled systems extending from concept, through design to development realisation and testing. There is a subtle balance of science and engineering involved in the research and the group is structured to enable this balance. We spoke to Loïc Coudron, a research fellow at the University of Hertfordshire,  about his current research in microfluidic equipment.

Synthetic Biology: Miniaturisation for Automation

Synthetic biology holds much promise. Researchers have been working toward using techniques to create new valuable products such as novel therapeutics and drugs, biorenewable fuels, and new biochemicals and biomaterials. It requires a multidisciplinary effort – it calls for biologists, chemists, engineers, software developers (STEM disciplines) to collaborate on finding ways to understand how genetic parts work together, and then combine them to produce useful applications.
