  • Soft-lithography service

    "The most widely adopted method for making Microfluidics devices for chemical and biological applications is named soft-lithography, a Microfabrication process combining photolithography and micro-molding techniques using a soft, biocompatible, polymeric material – PDMS (polydimethylsiloxane). The Microfabrication room of our facility offers all the equipment and tools needed for photolithography and soft-lithography process."

    The lab will perform this service for investigators or trained users may use the equipment and facilities themselves. See the guidelines on the website for details.

  • Soft-lithography training and consultation

    Includes seminars and workshops, as well as individual training. See website for details.

  • Specialized equipment training

  • Specialized process assistance
