Center for Polymer Microfabrication (CPM)

MIT Laboratory for Manufacturing Productivity

NTU Biochemical Process Engineering Laboratory

We are a global research center dedicated to polymer based manufacturing.

We seek to create a fundamental basis for the design and optimal operation of the processes used to manufacture microfluidic devices with micron and sub-micron sized capillaries. We are researchers at MIT in Cambridge MA and at NTU and NUS Singapore.

We develop enabling systems and technologies for emerging industries in polymer based manufacturing. We focus on the large-scale commercialization of micro fluidic devices for chemical, biomedical, and photonic applications. We strive to further the understanding of the entire polymer manufacturing process, from material, to equipment and tooling, to metrology, to systems. We address the critical issues of productivity, cost, quality and logistics issues that define large scale manufacturing.

We are funded by the SMA program, and industrial sponsors. We actively seek new strategic industrial partners for collaboratation and mutual advice.
