fabrication facility

At the University of Hull, the Faculty of Science and Engineering has invested into our newly refurbished Lab-on-a-Chip Fabrication Facility. We offer design and fabrication of microfluidic devices from glass, rigid polymers and elastomers as well as paper microfluidic devices to researchers across the University and beyond.

Facilities include:

  • precision CNC milling (Datron M7)
  • injection moulding (Babyplast 610P)
  • hot press (Collin P200 PM)
  • laser cutter (HPC Laser, Laserscript 6840)
  • plasma etcher (Henniker HPT300)
  • blister making machine (Sephia T501)
  • glass dicing machine (Arnold HT6 BSP)
  • cold laminator (Jetmounter JM18), and wax printer (Xerox 8580).
