The MBI Facility
The Microproducts Breakthrough Institute is located on the Hewlett Packard Corvallis campus just northeast of the OSU campus. The facility supports hierarchical (nano/meso/micro) product and process development for commercializing nanomanufacturing (nanomaterials synthesis, functionalization and assembly) and arrayed microfluidic applications. The MBI is equipped for microsystems fabrication and materials characterization, and comprises over 20,000 sq. ft. of fab/hood space and researcher, tenant, and student office space.
Nine additional laboratories and additional fabrication space, as well as new office space, are under construction at the MBI totaling approximately 35,000 sq. ft. total, to supplement microfabrication, synthesis, characterization, and analytical capabilities currently in place.
