Microfluidics Lab


This lab involves the creation of a microfluidic system. At its heart, microfluidics is essentially standard plumbing, just at a much smaller scale. Unlike plumbing, however, the liquid flowing through the channels is used to run some computation, rather than the liquid itself being useful for anything.

In this lab, we use silicone over a mold to produce the small channels. A syringe can be used to pump liquid through the channels.
