History
A short story about microfluidics.

A little bit of history: What is microfluidics?

Microfluidics emerged in the beginning of the 1980s and took advantage of micro fabrication technologies used for transistors and microprocessors to handle small amounts of liquids inside micrometer to nanometer scale channels.

In the 2000s, technologies based on molding micro channels in polymers such as PDMS (PolyDiMethilSiloxane) enabled fast development of microfluidics, by allowing fast prototyping in any research lab.

Today, microfluidics is a mature technology that provides efficient tools for multiple research areas, and more specifically for biology research.

Microfluidic tools can simplify your daily experimental work.

How microfluidics can enhance cell biology researches

Microfluidic systems are compatible with microscopy and conventionnal biology assays

Applications: Cell culture, live cell imaging, 3D cell culture…

Its micrometer scale is at the same scale as cells and enables fast medium switch.

Applications: Single cell analysis, calcium imaging, drug response studies…

Microfluidics enable the finest flow control and stable concentration gradients.

Applications: Chemotaxis, shear stress assays, hydrodynamic cell trapping…

Microfluidics easily allows parallelization, and thus promotes high throughput screening.

Applications: Drug screening, quantitative cell biology, bioinformatics…
