Microfluidics:

  • Organs on chips: gut on a chip, lung on a chip. Our group focuses on use of new materials, that would allow to reduce small molecule absorption and would ensure anaerobic conditions. Also we work on integration of sensors.
  • Microfluidic devices for extracellular vesicle separation and concentration from biological samples for early cancer diagnostics.

Cell culturing and studies of biological processes takes place at partner organizations.

Additional to applications in biology we are developing microfluidic devices for synthesis of spider silk and studies of magnetic particles.

Photonics: research and development of devices based on organic materials such as Su-8, PMMS and other materials. Studies of light coupling to polymer waveguides.

By combining skills and knowledge in microfluidics and photonics we are developing label free biosensors for detection of cancer biomarkers.

Liquid crystal displays: development of thins films and pattern fabrication for high voltage liquid crystal and other custom displays. Characterization of optical and electrical properties. Displays are made in cooperation with industrial partner EuroLCDs.
