The Toronto Microfluidics Foundry is a flexible environment for the fabrication and integration of polymer-based microfluidic devices and complements ECTI, the central cleanroom facility at the University of Toronto. Users need to be trained according to the UofT Health and Safety regulations as well as individually at the equipment and need to attend monthly user meetings. Fulfilling these requirements is a prerequisite for maintaining active user status.

The Foundry is supported by the Canada Foundation of Innovation, the Ontario Ministry for Research & Innovation, and the National Sciences and Engineering Research Council of Canada.

This is a multi-user facility that is supported by a number of UofT research groups. You should adhere to the lab rules (safety, signup, participation in joint info/cleaning sessions) in order to maintain active user status. Click here for a list of active users.

The PTC is designed to maintain and improve process standards at the Toronto Microfluidic Foundry. Click here for a list of current members. General functions of the PTC are:

- Approve requests for any new fabrication process

- Provide suggestions for (changes in) user policies and fabrication protocols where needed

- Match new users with experienced ones for training

- Make suggestions for improvements of the facility and set priorities with respect to equipment upgrade/ acquisition of new equipment

- Provide short updates at Foundry Meetings

MEETINGS
