What is wetPONG?
The field of micro- and nanosystems in life sciences is inherently highly interdisciplinary. In both academic research and industrial R&D the people involved need to be able to communicate and work with a large number of collaborators from different fields and backgrounds, know about the possible applications in the pharmaceutical industries, medicine and patient care and take responsibility of the societal implication of their work. Successful products and research findings can only be achieved when this transdisciplinary collaboration is learned and taught on-the-job and at all levels Read the story »

We, students of the School of Life Sciences, who are currently attending a course in medicinal micro system technics received the task to develop a game using micro fluidic technology.
After collecting a few different ideas for such a game we soon narrowed down to a micro fluidic labyrinth. Goal is to maneuver either a [...]

The other thing was [...]

Labyrinth

We had the grand idea of a microfluid labyrinth.
Two injection needles fill the labyrinth with fluid. A small plastic ball is inserted into
the labyrinth and is maneuvered through the passages. Pressure must be
applied to the two needles, for the ball to change its direction. Whoever finishes the labyrinth first, wins!
