Brazilian research in microfluidics is flowing fast
Microfluidics in Brazil is a fast-growing research field, as highlighted by the Microfluidics Workshop organized in the past years at the Brazilian Center of Research in Energy and Materials (CNPEM). Research groups are already references in their fields. The Institute of Chemistry of São Carlos (IQSC) is one of them. The IQSC is the host of an exchange program in which students from Texan and Californian universities (UTSA and CSULA) receive an intensive training in Microfluidic Analytical Chemistry and participate in real Brazilian research projects.

In the droplet microfluidics domain, one of the Brazilian references is Professor Alvaro Teixeira and his team in the Federal University of Viçosa (UFV). Their microfluidic systems are designed to handle simple and double emulsions with low size dispersion, flux focusing and encapsulation, with applications mainly in Chemistry and Biology.
As a further step towards integration, the Group of New Materials and Devices from the University of São Paulo uses micro-fabrication technics to develop the so-called Lab on Chip, a downscaled device which performs a complex task, e.g. real-time detection of bacteria in water.
