Welcome to the Wheeler Microfluidics Laboratory


First Place Winning Entry in NSERC's 2016 Science, Action! Video Contest

We are an interdisciplinary research group at the University of Toronto developing lab-on-a-chip techniques for applications in chemistry, biology, and medicine. One of the prime technologies that we use is called digital microfluidics (or “DMF”). In DMF, discrete fluidic droplets are manipulated on the surface of an array of electrodes coated with a hydrophobic insulator. For more on DMF, see our recent review articles (in Science, ABC, Adv. Mat., COCB or ARAC), or simply browse the site for an overview of the latest updates from the lab. Feel free to also join us on Twitter, Facebook, and Youtube.
