Microfluidics deals with miniaturized fluid handling devices - networks of small channels where at least one dimension typically is in the range of 10 − 500 µm. These kinds of devices are also often referred to as lab-on-a chip (LOC) devices or micro total analysis systems (µTAS), which emphasizes the unique possibilities to accomplish laboratory tasks and analysis in a miniaturized format.

We develop and fabricate different designs of microfluidic devices and use them to investigate intra- and intercellular responses and signaling pathways due to changes in the extracellular environment. The devices can be used directly to trap cells, or in combination with optical tweezers to facilitate time-lapse experiments with single cells. Studies are currently performed of both yeast and mammalian cells.
