Curriculum Overview

Microfluidics is a technique for manipulating liquid samples. It can be used with nanoparticles for sensitive detection of chemicals. Smaller devices and channels can do more with one drop of liquid sample. This lab is designed to help students understand fluid flow, capillary action, surface tension, and chemical tests used as sensors. In this lab, students will use agar gel to create a fluidic device and use it to test and diagnose three “patient’s” samples for pH, starch, and peroxide content.
