Researchers learn microfabrication techniques in the CNF cleanroom.


This class covers a variety of techniques used in microfluidic device fabrication, including:


  • Cleanroom lab techniques and protocols
  • Fabrication of microfluidic masters using photolithography and other techniques
  • Making an imprint using soft lithography
  • Device setup, packaging, and imaging
  • Experimental Design: Materials requirements and limitations, etc.
  • Research lunch: meet with NBTC/CMM researchers who are working on microfluidic devices.

The class typically runs for 3 full days. Sample slides can be downloaded on the sidebar.

Registration for class is required due to small class sizes. This class is open to any interested researchers, however, because we work in NBTC lab space, all those taking the course must register to become NBTC users if they do not currently have access. Users that do not have CNF cleanroom training must attend a brief orientation prior to the class.
