Microfluidics and biomics cluster Research groups

The Microfluidics & Biomics Cluster UPV/EHU is a strategic alliance between three teams of the University of the Basque Country. It is comprised of a multidisciplinary team with a well consolidated internationally recognised expertise in genetics, chemistry, materials, microfluidics, analytical systems, cell biology, nutrition, medicine and molecular biology. We aim to develop the next generation of lab-on-a-chip microsystems for forensic, environmental and biomedical analysis.

Established in the Alava Campus of the University of the Basque Country, the M&B Cluster will focus on applied and translational research, developing basic research lines as well as highly integrated sub-projects to produce functional microsystems with high commercial potential. This area of research has a strong transversal character, with applications in all fields of science. In addition, this technology has a high marketing potential and therefore the ability to generate products that can reach society.

The lab-on-a-chip research community aims to investigate and develop highly integrated miniaturised devices for life science and analytical applications. It deals with physics, chemistry, biology and engineering. Within this proposal, we will focus on the development of:
(1) Devices for nucleic acid purification and analysis.
(2) Water analysis devices.
(3) Disposable, wearable devices for sweat analysis.
(4) Microfluidic platform for cell culture and monitoring.
