About us

The Laboratory of BioChemistry (LBC) was created in September 2012 at the Ecole Supérieure de Physique Chimie Industrielles de la Ville de Paris, and is directed by Prof. Andrew Griffiths. We are also part of CBI, UMR 8231 ESPCI-CNRS.

The research activities of LBC are based around droplet-based microfluidics, a powerful new ultrahigh-throughput system in which reaction volumes can be minaturized by up to a million-fold compared to conventional assays in microtitre plates.

This opens up exciting prospects for the development of extremely innovative systems with many applications in the Life Sciences.

The team is highly multidisciplinary to both create and improve microfluidic set-ups and develop a wide range of bioassays on molecules, cells, bacteria, virus-like particles…

Our main research topics are related to high throughput screening and evolutionary biology.
