CSIC work chosen as cover for Advanced Materials Journal
In April 2023, PRIME project coordinator Carlos Sánchez Somolinos with his colleagues Mehrzad Javadzadeh and Jesús del Barrio (CSIC) had their work chosen as the cover of the journal Advanced Materials, Volume 35, Issue 14. Their work combined two exciting topics,...
Additive Manufacturing: Interview with Lorena Ceamanos Fiances (CSIC)
What is the status? Our team has utilized 4D printing technology to create printed actuators that are both robust and reproducible. Through our research, we've also investigated actuators with different geometries and integration strategies, leading to the development...
Sensing Materials: Interview with Gabriel Alfranca (CSIC)
What is the status? We successfully managed to adapt the sensing materials to the chip platform and were able to detect low concentrations of a model analyte. Have you changed course at all? The only significant change we made was to use a different model of...

About the Project
Microfluidic devices manipulate tiny amounts of fluid enabling cost-effective, fast, accurate and high throughput analytical assays. Progress in Microfluidics has huge impact in environmental pollution monitoring, biohazard detection and biomedicine, contributing to the development of new tools for drug screening, biological studies, point-of-care diagnostics and personalized medicine.
PRIME aims to go beyond the state-of-the-art generating a robust platform to create a new generation of active, tubeless and contactless microfluidic chips effectively changing the currently established paradigm.
Six organisations from Spain, the Netherlands, Germany and Austria participate at the PRIME project.
