Research Center for Microfluidic Systems Design and Manufacture
Research Center of Design and Manufacture for Microfluidic Systems (hereinafter referred as RCDMMS) was established in August 2015, leaded by Li Yong, professor of the Department of mechanical engineering of Tsinghua University. Based on the interdisciplinary research activities in micro machining, microfluidic control and MEMS technologies, RCDMMS focuses on the development of biochip technology for point of care testing (POCT), and inkjet print head for industrial use.
