Robert Westervelt speaks at FluidicMEMS Dec 2011: Making cells dance!

Last month we had our biggest ever FluidicMEMS gathering of lab-on-a-chip folks as we heard Professor Robert Westervelt speak on programmable integrated circuit / microfluidic chips to manipulate biological cells and liquid droplets. Platforms like the one above could save time and money by automating resource-intensive biological tasks by individually trapping and moving large numbers of cells and droplets.

A huge thanks to co-organizers A.J. Kumar and Joost Bonsen, sponsor Maine Manufacturing and co-sponsor uFluidix for making the event possible. We were generously hosted by Microsoft at its New England Research & Development (N.E.R.D.) Center in Cambridge.  If you’re interested in participating in or sponsoring an event like this, please drop us a line.

Professor Westervelt tells us about integrated circuit microfluidic chips.

Academic / medical / startup / industry crowd mingles.
