The CSIRO Microfluidics Laboratory was set up 10 years ago in response to the emerging needs for understanding the physics of fluid flow in micro-geometries and its manipulation plus for the development of Lab-on-a-chip devices that allow high sensitivity (single molecule level) of biological/chemical detection. The laboratory consist of multidisciplinary experts in the fields of thermal/fluid sciences, surface chemistry, material science, microbiology, microfabrication, electrical engineering, sensors, and signal analysis. The CSIRO Microfluidics Laboratory is involved with both strategic and commercial projects for developing new technology and products. We have close partnerships with universities (UniMelb, ANU, Swinburne,Deakin) industries and government agencies (e.g. Federal Police, PM&C/NSST, Customs, DSTO).

Other Infrastructure:

  • Fully equipped workshops. Large scale laboratories to test prototypes on industrial equipment.

Access by:

  • Research collaboration
  • Fee for service



Know how:

      • Service 1 – Micro-Fluid Dynamics Theory
      • Service 2 – Lab-on-a-chip design and fabrication
      • Service 3 – Sensor design and fabrication
      • Service 4 – Access to Computational Fluid Dynamics Software and Specialists
      • Service 5 – Access to a large range of expertise in the fields of physics, mathematics, engineering and chemistry.
