Teach Microfluidics with Easy-to-Use Components and Automation
LabSmith’s microfluidics education kit helps students learn the fundamentals of constructing and automating microfluidic flows.
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.
