¿ Introduction to microfluidics and lab-on-a-chip technology ¿ origins - scaling laws ¿ applications

¿ Microfluidic principles: flow actuation; pumps; mixers; valves; etc.

¿ Introduction to fabrication techniques for the production of microfluidic devices, using ¿cleanroom materials¿ such as silicon and glass, as well as polymer materials.

¿ Surface modification: surface passivation; and immobilization of active and/or recognition elements

¿ (Bio)molecule analysis: sample preparation; molecular separation; integrated devices for biomolecule analysis

¿ Microreactors

¿ Microfluidics for cell biology: engineering device for experimentation on cells; tissue regeneration and organ-on-a-chip platforms
