Microfluidics for Oncology

The Microfluidics for Oncology Laboratory is developing new microfluidic solutions for applications primarily in cancer diagnosis and treatment. Over the years, the group has developed a unique expertise in fluid physics and exchange phenomena that it uses to design fundamentally new fluidic processor architectures or to optimize existing processes. We also develop our own solutions for the 3D culture of spheroids and tumour samples, and for treatment response analyses of cancer patients. The open microfluidics concepts we are developing also allow us to consider applications in the field of systems biology and conventional bioassay automation.

Pixel-based open-space microfluidics. Imagine 144 liquid pixels capable of delivering precisely controlled reagents in a surface of 1 cm2! That’s what is described in our new paper published in PNAS and titled: “Pixel-based open-space microfluidics for versatile surface processing”.


2D convection–diffusion in multipolar flows. Étienne published a new article in Physics of Fluids entitled “Two-dimensional convection – diffusion in multipolar flows with applications in microfluidics and groundwater flow”. Congratulations!


MicroTAS 2020. Congratulations to Elena Refet for winning the Best Flash Presentation Award, presenting her poster at the MicroTAS 2020 conference. You can watch her winning video here!
