New Tools, New Possibilities - 3D Printing for Lab-on-a-Chip

Video   May 02, 2018 | Video by TEDx Talks


What we can do in technology is defined by our tools. If we want new possibilities, we need to create new tools. Greg Nordin was looking for a breakthrough new method of making lab-on-a-chip devices, in which a medical diagnostic or bio-research laboratory is reduced to the size of a small chip. What he and his group came up with is a new tool for directly 3D printing lab-on-a-chip (also called "microfluidic") devices.
