The core business of our

project is represented by

the main facility for

fabricating the microfluidic

devices: a clean room of

class ISO 7 where soft

lithography can be

performed in controlled

MISCHA will be provided external support by the Computational Chemistry Laboratory and by Laboratory for Nanofabrication of Nanodevicesthe of the University of Padova

The Computational Chemistry Laboratory (LICC) will provide computational resources for modelling at macro, meso and molecular scale of microfludic devices, characterization of micro and nanoflows via numerical simulation and optmization of microreactors. LICC will provide hardware and software resources for extensive computational applications.

The Laboratory for Nanofabrication of Nanodevices (LANN) will give an external support for all the fabrication process that requires high resolution patterning and also 3D patterning. The participation of LaNN will be in terms of exploitation of nanofabrication facility and also in term of LaNN personnel involved in the specific projects.
