With microfluidic large scale integration and the emergence of many new synthetic biology technologies, there is an ever increasing benefit in using computer automated design (CAD) tools for scaling designs to larger and more complex applications. In 2015 Xin Han et al. demonstrated the effective delivery of CRISPR-Cas9 to cells, which are normally difficult to transfect, using a microfluidic membrane device. To help researchers and engineers realize microfluidics for new synthetic biology applications, it is pertinent that they have access to CAD tools to facilitate the design process. Fluigi Cloud is an online platform designed with this goal in mind. It provides a suite of software tools for microfluidic CAD. This work describes some applications of Fluigi Cloud and the role it plays in the greater ecosystem of microfluidic design and synthetic biology.
