The Ohio Center for Microfluidic Innovation (OCMI) at the University of Cincinnati was created by the Ohio 3rd Frontier Wright Projects Program ($5.9M), and has the mission of seeding a new industrial cluster in southwest Ohio for commercializing technologies that manipulate tiny amounts of fluids inside polymer-microchips. OCMI provides industrial user access, along with a setting to collaborate with the University of Cincinnati's internationally recognized microfluidics scientists. OCMI provides the complete tool set needed to take microfluidic devices from concept, to pilot fabrication, all the way through industry standard characterization and performance specification.
“In the maturing science of microfluidics, it's apparent that small things can make a big impact in the medical, mobile, environmental and other industries… University of Cincinnati is poised to become a leader in developing a myriad of better, faster, more precise products and manufacturing processes through the new Ohio Center for Microfluidic Innovation.”
"The center... bustles with faculty and students working alongside industry partners to develop products that can be applied within biomedical, electronics and sensor industries."
