Technical Science Administration

We are a fabrication shop on the University of Oregon campus.

We specialize in developing unique high tech components with cutting edge fabrication techniques.

Lots of new machines are arriving in 2020 for our new location in the Knight Campus building.

Send us an email to tsa.uoregon@gmail.com or come to the shop between 8 am and 5 pm with your project details. You can also start a project online here.

We are located at 1254 Franklin Blvd. in 101 Cascade Annex.

Past Projects:     
Microfluidic Devices for Nematode Neurobiology

High throughput micro injection chip mold for C. elegans transgenic research.


This prototype allowed the functional testing of an inline microfluidic platform to perform in-situ microinjections on C. elegans on a scalable production line scenario. The mold allowed fine tuning of 50um to 70um channel widths with side wall < 5um to pierce and perform microinjections.


Stimuli Delivery in fMRI Studies.

Sanitizable fMRI-compatible custom designed gustometer manifold. Completely non-metallic, universally positionable, autoclavable mouthpiece designed, prototyped, and tested in house for functional neuroimaging while delivering taste stimuli.
