Upon successful completion of two previous rounds of The Microfluidic Circle competition, we are pleased to announce the opening of the application process for The Prototyping Grant 2019. We have been impressed by the outstanding quality of the submitted applications over past years and we believe that this year will not be any different. This no strings attached Prototyping Grant was created for start-ups or emerging companies who have a novel product with a microfluidic component in it. The winners of the Prototyping Grant will obtain free design and fabrication services from uFluidix for the development of their microfluidic prototypes.
The dollar value of offered services is USD 50,000 for one year.
Please find detailed information about the program and application process here.
We invite previous grant applicants to reapply. Please include the project update to reflect your recent achievements in this year’s application to increase your chances of winning.
The application submission deadline is Sunday, March 31, 2019 at 11:59 pm.
Should you have any questions or require any further information, please contact Kateryna Protsyk, Program Manager at
“We would highly recommend other startups to apply. The ability to iterate on your designs and validate performance in the lab with professionally manufactured chips has given us a real boost in our product development. After successful completion of the initial project, we still have some chips that we are using to help us refine our design tools.”
