Montana State University researchers have made a small breakthrough — literally — but one that could have a big impact across a wide range of applications.

 .

A team led by Stephan Warnat, assistant professor in the department of mechanical and industrial engineering in MSU’s Norm Asbjornson College of Engineering, has developed a new method of using 3D printing to make devices for microfluidics, which involves manipulating very small volumes of liquid to measure water quality or study microorganisms, among other things.

 .

“It’s a big step,” said Warnat, who described the advance in an article published in a scientific journal and then featured on 3dprint.com . “We’re excited that our idea works the way we thought it would.” Using the new method, Warnat’s team demonstrated […]
