Microfluidics

Microfluidics is both the science which studies the behaviour of fluids through micro-channels, and the technology of manufacturing micro-miniaturized devices containing chambers and tunnels through which fluids flow or are confined.
Microfluidics deal with very small volumes of fluids, down to femtoliters (fL) which is a quadrillionth of a liter. Fluids behave very differently on the micrometric scale than they do in everyday life: these unique features are the key for new scientific experiments and innovations.

At Satapathi Lab, we are perfecting 3D Printing based fabrication of microfluidic devices for making Lab-On-Chip devices for Point-of-Care applications and the trace detection of compounds, biomarkers.
