World of Microfluidics European Micro Cup: Microfluidics and Microbioreactor
Welcome to the European Micro Cup - the scientific game of microfluidics! The three episodes each represent your ticket to a whole new dimension of micro-scale technology. In this episode you will learn how microfluidics work, why it might be safer visiting a micro-arena instead of a macro-arena and how microfluidics will change the future of the scientific game.
Microfluidics is a field of science that connects engineering, physics, chemistry, biochemistry, nanotechnology and biotechnology. It allows for precise control and manipulation of very small amounts of fluids and it is mostly used for developing e.g. inkjet print heads, DNA chips and lab-on-a-chip technology.
The animated short movie episodes "European Micro Cup, World of Microfludics" were initiated by the EUROMBR and BioIntense research project.
EUROMBR partners are: Technical University of Denmark, University College London, Technical University of Graz, University of Ljubljana, Technical University of Braunschweig, University of Oulu, University of Cantazara, Micronit BV, Microfluidic Chip Shop GmbH, iX-Factory GmbH, NanoMyP®, CerCell Aps. EUROMBR has received funding from the People Programme (Marie Curie Actions, Multi-ITN) of the European Union's Seventh Framework Programme for research, technological development and demonstration under grant agreement no. 608104.
BioIntense partners are: Technical University of Denmark, Technical University of Graz, University of Ljubljana, Ghent University, The University of Manchester, Lund University, DSM Innovative Synthesis BV, Vlaamse Instelling voor Technologisch Onderzoek N.V., iX-Factory GmbH, Microfluidic Chip Shop GmbH, Luxcel Biosciences Ltd., LentiKat´s a.s., C-Lecta GmbH, Sigma-Aldrich Production GmbH.. BIOINTENSE is EC-funded through the 7th Framework Cooperation Programme that has the strategic objective of supporting research activities to gain or consolidate leadership in key scientific and technology areas and to encourage international competitiveness whilst promoting research that supports EU policies.
