NanoJ-Fluidics: open-source fluid exchange in microscopy

NanoJ-Fluidics is an open-source device, composed of easily accessible LEGO-parts, electronics and labware. It is designed to automate and simplify fluid exchange experiments in microscopy. Check the paper in Nature Communications: Automating multimodal microscopy with NanoJ-Fluidics.

It consists of three parts:

This Wiki provides all the information necessary for researchers to reproduce their own systems and start performing fluidic experiments on their microscopes.


NanoJ-Fluidics is developed in a collaboration between the Henriques and Leterrier laboratories, with contributions from the community:

  • Matthew Meyer (La Jolla Institute of Allergy & Immunology's Microscopy Core): 3D printed syringe pump body, v-slot adaptor, other parts (see section).
  • Leo Saunders (University of Colorado Denver): 3D printed syringe pump body (see section).
