Microfluidics

Workstations

The microfluidics facility consists of 4 automated inverted Leica microscopes with transmitted and fluorescent light capabilities. Each station is equipped with solenoid banks for complete microfluidic control which can be controlled by Labview software. These microscopes are dedicated for long-term use (days-weeks/user)
