Microfabrication Core

The Microfabrication Core provides equipment and expertise in the area of microfabrication and rapid device prototyping for biomedical applications and healthcare.

Our mandate is to support researchers at St. Michael’s Hospital and the Institute for Biomedical Engineering, Science and Technology (iBEST). We promote the use of state-of-the art microfabrication technologies in biomedical research.

The facilities include Class 10,000 (ISO Class 7) cleanroom space, 3D printer for high-definition prototype devices, and general lab equipment.

In addition to the equipment, the Micorfabrication and Device Development Core offers group and individual trainings, protocol development and validation, 3D modeling and device design, data analysis and consultation services.
