World’s first fluid-shaping technology for biomedicine

Despite improvements in our ability to manipulate ever-smaller volumes using microfluidics, the technology remains inaccessible to many biologists as it often requires complex manufacturing facilities (such as soft lithography) and uses materials foreign to cell biology (such as polydimethylsiloxane). Scientists at the University of Oxford – in the Department of Engineering Science and The Dunn [...]
