Open Millifluidic Inquiry System
The Open Millifluidic Inquiry System (OMIS) is a platform for lab-on-a-chip technologies and miniaturized analysis systems. It is a 3D printed, Arduino-based science and engineering project that allows the end-user (student/teacher/hobbyist) to explore the science of fluids. OMIS currently has two parts. The first is a syringe pump constructed from 3D printed parts, an inexpensive stepper motor and some items from the local hardware store. The second part is a “millifluidic device” which is also 3D printed. OMIS is designed with learning and inquiry in mind, and all elements of the design have been created to encourage exploration.
- Print the parts located in the STL directory.
- Purchase the items in the Bill of Materials.
- Follow the build guide.
- Design your circuit using this Adafruit guide.
- Upload the sketch in the software directory to your Arduino.
- The github repository will be used for version management and issue tracking. This will be true for design files, software and lessons/activities.
- My personal webpage will be the source for commentary and any opinions I have on the project.
- The build at Thingiverse will remain as the original version for historical reasons.
