The kit is geared toward introductory college students and includes instruction for co-mixing experiment, patterned flow, and gradient flow, with endless variations as kit components are fully reusable.

1 to 4 students can participate with each kit. No previous microfluidics or programming experience is required. Step-by-step instruction and support videos help students accomplish fluid routing, automation and scripting tasks, to build a basic setup as well as more complex circuits.

Students will learn:

  • basic microfluidic systems and principles
  • assembly of leak-free microfluidic circuits
  • fluid routing, switching and mixing
  • microfluidic chip functions and connections
  • automation of pumps and valves
  • scripting to control flows
  • calculation of Reynolds number
  • cleaning and reuse of components.
