Some fancy 3D printed microfluidic devices

posted Aug 18, 2018, 3:42 PM by Khaled salama
We continue working on delivery systems for biosensors in the form of microfluidic devices. In our recent work We report a novel modular plug-and-play microfluidic device for versatile emulsion generation, which consists of three parts: a top module for the dispersed phase supply, a glass capillary for emulsion creation and a bottom module for the continuous phase supply. By combining different modules and tapered glass capillaries, single emulsions, Janus emulsions and double emulsions have been successfully produced. More details at:

It's worth noting that we have a serious of interesting 3D printed microfluidic devices and their biocompatibility:
