The BioMEMS and Microfluidics Laboratory is part of the Biomedical Engineering department at Rutgers University. It integrates various engineering disciplines with biological and medical applications, creating a highly technical and thoroughly collaborative biomedical engineering environment.


Our main focus is in developing microfluidic and BioMEMS technologies for use in biomedical applications. Microfluidics, the manipulation of fluids at volumes less than 1mL is highly advantageous for biological operations. BioMEMS is a subset of MEMS technology in the area of biomedical research.
