Microfluidics and BioMEMS Laboratory

Home | Dr. Fan |Research | Teaching | Publication | Group Members

Microfluidics and BioMEMS Laboratory is in the Department of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering. It is a part of Interdisciplinary Microsystems Group (IMG), which is a college-wide, multi-departmental, education and research program of the Herbert Wertheim College of Engineering.

The laboratory is directed by Professor Z. Hugh Fan. Our research focuses on (1) developing microfluidics technologies, BioMEMS (Biomedical MicroElectroMechanical Systems), and sensors; and (2) applying them to chemical analysis and biomedical applications. Microfluidics is promising to reach the holy grail of “lab-on-a-chip”. In analogy to shrinking a computer from the size of a room in the 1950s to a laptop today, instruments for chemical and biological analyses could be miniaturized using modern microfabrication technology. Potential applications of the portable, miniaturized devices include point-of-care testing (e.g., in emergency rooms), environmental monitoring, and detection of biowarfare agents in the field.
