FOLLOW ON : The Bijel: A MEMBRANE CONTRACTOR FOR MICROREACTORS

Project Details

Key findings

That we could successfully prepare a fully three dimensional sample of our medium: the bijel.
That this new medium could be "plumbed" into other equipment for handling liquids for our chosen application area.
That the small particles, used in our medium, have surfaces which play an important role in the fabrication process.
That we could file a patent on our discovery.
Via a market assessment we found that the market for microfluidics devices is full or promise.
