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, I'll 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 we use them.
Join me at Ada’s Technical Books on Wednesday, September 21st at 7:30 PM to be part of the discussion! Discussions happen on the 3rd Wednesday of every month as part of the HiveBio Discussion Series. Any questions, comments, or suggestions of topics can be forwarded to me through the contact page.
