    Akronym

    LSMF

    Beskrivning

    The resource supports development of microfluidic, lab-on-a-chip, organs-on-chip and perfusion cell culture systems. By enabling access to expertise in microfluidic system design and microfabrication facilities, this platform supports researchers with custom development and characterization of microfluidic devices. Our engineers are highly experienced in microfluidics and neuro-microtechnology as well as micromilling and 3D printing of microfluidic system components and are there to support your microfluidic system development.

    Erbjudna tjänster

    LSMF provides engineering support in research specific development of microfluidic solutions. Support includes device design and manufacturing as well as advice in device assembly and interconnecting to commercial system components (pumps, valves, flow control etc.) for full system functionality and training before hand-over.

    Styrning av infrastrukturen

    Thomas Laurell (thomas.laurell@bme.lth.se) is the temporary manager of LSMF during Q1&Q2 2024.
    Researchers get access to LSMF by submitting a brief project description to Thomas Laurell and the project can be initiated after approval from the LSM assessment panel.
    LSMF charge for manpower (i.e. engineers with expertise in microfluidic system development and manufacturing) and lab access on an hourly basis as well as consumables.
