Microfluidic Workshop

logo_collageThis workshop will offer participants the opportunity to learn about patterning structures across different length scales, nm to μm, and become familiar with a number of important application areas such as microfluidics and nanofluidics for biological/biomedical applications.

07/27/16 – 07/29/16
Lectures – 125 Chapman Hall,
Hands-on Laboratory – CHANL, Chapman Hall

There will be lectures covering relevant technological and application areas with on-site visits and demonstrations of relevant equipment. The last day of the workshop will involve a hands-on experience; making a microfluidic device.



The Chapel Hill Analytical and Nanofabrication Laboratory (CHANL) was established in 2006 as part of the Institute for Advanced Materials, Nanoscience and Technology, but has since moved into the Department of Applied Physical Sciences. CHANL operates as a shared instrumentation laboratory open to UNC researchers from all departments as well as to researchers from other universities, government labs, and industry. User fees are charged for instrumentation usage to recover the cost of materials, supplies, and instrumentation maintenance.


  • Provide cost-effective access to analytical and nanofabrication instrumentation that would not otherwise be available in individual research labs.
  • Provide expertise and technical resources, to assist researchers in designing experimental plans, acquiring appropriate data, and interpreting data.
  • Promote education by working closely with students and postdocs to provide instrument training and hands on experience.
  • Foster an environment of collaborative research that extends beyond departmental boundaries.
