About the Foundry

The Stanford Microfluidics Foundry was founded in 2005 and is part of Professor Stephen Quake's laboratory research group in the Bioengineering Department at Stanford University. His lab has pioneered microfluidic large scale integration.

Our mission is to be the main service provider of integrated microfluidic devices on Stanford campus servicing universities and academic institutions. We aim to make our services and designs readily accessible and promote use in a wide variety of applications.
The Stanford Microfluidics Foundry is a newly built Class 10,000 cleanroom facility and is located at the Clark Center, Stanford University (318 Campus Drive, Clark Center E300, Stanford, California, 94305, USA).
