Lab-on-a-Chip Fabrication Facility

At the University of Hull, we have established a dedicated Lab-on-a-Chip Fabrication Facility for the production of microfluidic devices. We can offer design and fabrication services for microfluidic devices made from glass, rigid polymers and elastomers as well as paper. This service is available to researchers across the University and also external organisations.

We have an extensive history in microfluidic device fabrication. Starting in the 1990s, we were one of the first producers of microfluidic systems in the UK. Over the years, many advances have been made in this field and Lab-on-a-Chip technology is now being utilised in a huge range of different applications. The University of Hull has been involved in pioneering several areas of microfluidics research, including microreactor chips for reagent mixing and reaction, clinical diagnostics devices, developing tissue-on-a-chip systems capable of maintaining and studying tissue biopsies and microsystems for dose-on-demand production and quality control of PET radiopharmaceuticals.

In our Fabrication Facility we have a range of equipment for the production of different types of devices. If you wish to collaborate or know more about our manufacture capabilities, please contact us.
