Dear Biomakespace Cambridge,

Hello, my name is Israel Sosa, and I am an editor of Metafluidics, an open repository for microfluidic devices and parts!

Our mission at Metafluidics is to bring together the global community of microfluidic researchers, designers, users, and enthusiasts through the sharing, innovation, and reproduction of microfluidic designs. The Metafluidics team would love to invite you to become a part of our community!

You can read more about Metafluidics in Nature Biotechnology, as well as via MIT News. Please visit Metafluidics to view our collection of microfluidic devices and parts shared by other microfluidic aficionados around the globe. By creating an account, you can download and share your own designs with the global community. We hope you join Metafluidics today!

Finally, the Community Biotechnology Initiative team at the MIT Media Lab would also like to invite you to apply to the second annual Global Community BioSummit that will be held October 26-28, 2018 at the MIT Media Lab in Cambridge, Massachusetts. The Bio Summit brings together bio-enthusiasts from all around the world, including innovators in microfluidics. You can learn more via our websites for Bio Summit 2018 and 2017. While the official application deadline has just passed, we are still accepting applications, but will prioritize those who submitted prior to the deadline. We hope to see you in October!

Should you have any questions or comments about Metafluidics, our site, our mission, or anything in between, please feel free to contact us by We hope that you’ll join us in our mission of promoting open-source microfluidics!
