Microfluidics for Synthetic Biology

Our goal in the CIDAR lab is to take a multidisciplinary approach to making microfluidics more accessible and help overcome the testing bottleneck of synthetic biology. The various projects range from building CAD tools, embedded hardware, developing manufacturing protocols, and building novel biological screening platforms.

Current Projects


To simplify the design and operation of microfluidic devices, we are building a suite of CAD tools to capture the expertise normally needed in microfluidics into easy-to-use software. More info here


Using rapid prototyping, we are building a library of droplet microfluidic components for high-throughput screening of biological systems. More info here


This project takes advantage of CIDAR’s rapid prototyping workflow for microfluidics to design, make, and test devices quickly and affordably. Learn more here
