The Ohio Center for Microfluidic Innovation

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.
