Group of microsystems

den Toonder

Our mission is to make things move at small scales: fluids, particles, molecules, solid structures. We do this by carrying out research in our Microfab/lab, where we develop innovative technological concepts and fabrication methods to create novel microfluidic devices and microactuators, serving a wide range of applications.

We make things move at small scales!

In microfluidic systems, active control of fluids and species is essential. Examples are fluid pumping, mixing, mechanical actuation, sorting of cells and particles, and biomolecule capture for diagnostics. We develop and apply micro-actuators, responsive surfaces, and magnetic bead actuation systems, to realize these functions. Our approaches are often biologically inspired, translating principles from nature into technological innovations.
