Put it inside the bag!

We have published a communication with title: Scaled–up sonochemical microreactor with increased efficiency and reproducibility Basically we have made sonochemistry inside the BuBble bags and is a scaled-up (larger) version of my first article during my PhD. This is an example on how microfluidics research results can be valorised and could be used for larger scale applications.

Making smaller droplets with larger microchannels

The Microfluidics and Nanofluidics journal has just published our latest results: Study of the geometry in a 3D flow-focusing device The trick of making small droplets of ~ 1µm with small channels trying to avoid clogging is very important for many applications. This work represents an important breakthrough in the practical use of flow-focusing devices delivering a […]
