Microfluidic LEGOs for scientific research

Now that’s the way to Lego!

I started a fire once by wiring Legos for light when I was a kid. Now there’s probably a kit for that.


I remember once struggling to build a “flow cell”: a little wire loop that would hold a flowing, stable film of fluid in place to be illuminated by a laser. What a mess that was. (In the end it was decided that just using a stationary sample would be fine.)

I hope these folks aren’t working with something that readily dissolves ABS plastic.


If this works reliable it’s absolutely brilliant.
