The Bio-Microfluidics Research Laboratory

The Bio-Microfluidics Research Laboratory focuses on the design, fabrication, and characterization of microfluidic devices intended to manipulate, treat and/or analyze single biological cells for fundamental biological research or biomedical applications.  The laboratory, located in the Mechanical Engineering Department at UPRM (Lucchetti Building), has a total of about 900 sq. ft and houses a small cell culture facility, a Faraday caged microscopy setup for electrical/optical characterization of microfluidic devices and tools for performing soft lithography such as an air plasma chamber.
