Crump Micro/Nano Fabrication Laboratory


The Crump Micro/Nano Fabrication Laboratory is a 400 ft2 class 1000 cleanroom facility located in the Integrated Systems Nanofabrication Cleanroom (ISNC) of the California NanoSystems Institute (CNSI). Activities in this facility include development, fabrication, and testing of microfluidic (lab-on-a-chip) devices for applications such as radiochemical synthesis, cell culture, and in vitro cell assays. Additional state-of-the art fabrication and characterization tools are available in the ISNC.

All members of the Crump Institute for Molecular Imaging are invited to use these facilities, after training and certification by the lab manager.
