BK - biophysics and complex systems

BK.MIF - Microfluidics

Microfluidics is a rising branch in fundamental research, which deals with the handling of liquids on small length scales and it is found in research areas such as biotechnology and medical engineering (Lab-on-a-Chip technology). This course yields insights on how to make microfluidic measuring devices and covers the basics of fluid mechanics at low Reynolds numbers. When investigating laminar flow or analyzing flow profiles around different obstacles, a training microscope with an open set-up will be used.

Please note that wearing an FFP2 face mask is requred as well as a Covid test at the CCS from the day before the lab course is performed.
