The Papautsky Lab performs highly multi-disciplinary research, from fundamental science to applied work. Our mission is to understand and develop microfluidic systems and point-of-care sensors for improving public health and safety. We also have a strong interest in developing microfabrication and nanofabrication techniques. The Papautsky Lab has extensive experience and practical knowledge in design and development of microfluidic and point-of-care sensor systems. We also have extensive knowledge of clean room operations as well as the associated equipment needed to fabricate and characterize micro devices and systems. We are a founding member of the NSF Center for Advanced Design and Manufacturing of Integrated Microfluidics (CADMIM) and the Ohio Center for Microfluidic Innovation (OCMI).
