Welcome to IMB Lab

  • Single Cell

Integrated Microfluidic Biotechnology Laboratory at NUS focuses on developing integrated droplet-based microfluidic systems for performing bioassays in a high throughput manner. Millions of droplets encapsulating active materials such as bio-molecules and single cells can be generated within an integrated microfluidic platform, allowing a multitude of tests to be conducted and analyzed on a single chip
