Description

Biologists in a lab spend, on average, 30-50% of their time manually moving fluids using disposable pipettes. Programmable Droplets are a low-cost lab-on-a-chip designed to make testing cheaper, faster, and more portable for biological sampling. Using electric fields to move, merge, stir, and analyze drops of biological samples, Programmable Droplets can eliminate contamination, human error, and huge magnitudes of hazardous waste.

Programmable Droplets was created by Media Lab researcher Udayan Umapathi.
