Welcome to the laboratory for

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.

Traînées d’étoiles microfluidiques by Pierre-Alexandre Goyette. Congratulations to Pierre-Alexandre Goyette who won the NSERC-sponsored Jury Prize of the 10th edition of Acfas’ la preuve par l’image contest for his image of the movement of fluorescent microbeads on the surface of a microfluidic probe.
