LEGO Bricks used in Microfluidics Research

ricecakericecake Maryland, USAMember Posts: 879
A team from MIT are using LEGO bricks in their microfluidics research. Basically, they etch tiny channels in bricks that liquids can flow through, and the modularity of LEGO bricks allow them to be assembled in different configurations. They call it a "Lab on a LEGO".

Article: Engineers make microfluidics modular using the popular interlocking blocks

I haven't read the technical paper but here is a link for that too:

    What I took from that article ... Associate Professor and he still uses "LEGOs".
    I've seen James May make enough hand basins to know there's going to be Kragle involved here somewhere...
