In June we had a nice gathering of the Digital Biology Community in Luceren, Switzerland. We were working on a Bio-Server with an array of 18 OpenDrops, talked about localised surface plasmon resonance (LSPR), watched the Ferrobot, tried to control “chasing droplets” with electro-wetting and many more things. Part of the program was also a hike to the local mountain, a day in the FabLab and a public lab in a gallery where we had some talks and demonstrations. We finally made a nice working prototype of an OpenDrop with a Hamamatsu Micro-Spectrometer Chip connected to an electrode via optical fiber.

We later learned that the “increasing community” was thought about in the concluding session of Electrowetting conference that took place at the same time in Enschede, Netherlands.
