HiveBio Discussion: Microfluidics

hivebio_21sept16adasdiscussion

In the cleanest labs with the best technology, laser-cut channels thousandths of an inch thin are burned into glass and polymers to make devices for studying microliter volumes of fluid. These tiny instruments study phenomena in a microfluidic environment, free from influences of fluid dynamics on the larger scale.

How can we use these microfluidic instruments to answer modern questions about life, on Earth and in the Universe? And what, as DIYbiologists, can we do to be part of this growing technique? This week, HiveBio will show you how to craft some simple DIY microfluidic devices  to exploit the world of low Reynolds number, and what questions we can ask as use them. Join us at Ada’s Technical Books on Wednesday, September 21st at 7:30 PM to be part of the discussion!
