SMART announces new method for processing fluid droplets

Monday, March 16, 2020 - 12:40 in Physics & Chemistry

Researchers from Singapore-MIT Alliance for Research and Technology (SMART), MIT’s research enterprise in Singapore, and the National University of Singapore (NUS) have developed a unique method for generating and processing fluid droplets under previously unattainable conditions. The discovery can transform a range of scientific applications including the study of biological and chemical processes, and can pave the way for more exquisite and targeted pharmaceutical and consumer products. The new process is explained in a paper titled “Embedded droplet printing in yield-stress fluids,” published in Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences. The project is part of the National Research Foundation’s Intra-CREATE Collaborative Grant, which enabled the collaboration between researchers from the Campus for Research Excellence and Technological Enterprise (CREATE) partner institutions SMART and NUS. Arif Zainuddin Nelson, a researcher under SMART and Intra-CREATE’s project “Advanced Manufacturing of Pharmaceutical Drug Products using Modular Microfluidic Processes,” led the development of the new method, which...
