     This Post-Effective Amendment No. 1 relates to the registration statement on Form S-8 (Registration No. 333-143557) previously filed by Microfluidics International Corporation, f/k/a MFIC Corporation, a Delaware corporation (the “Company”), with the Securities and Exchange Commission on June 6, 2007 (the “Registration Statement”), pertaining to the registration of 2,236,145 shares (the “Shares”) of Company common stock, par value $0.01 per share (the “Common Stock”), under the MFIC Corporation 2006 Stock Plan.
     On January 10, 2011, IDEX Corporation, a Delaware corporation (“IDEX”), Nano Merger Sub, Inc., a Delaware corporation and wholly-owned direct subsidiary of IDEX (“Purchaser”), and the Company entered into an Agreement and Plan of Merger (the “Merger Agreement”) that provides for IDEX to acquire the Company by means of a tender offer by Purchaser for all of the outstanding shares of Common Stock followed by the merger of Purchaser and the Company (the “Merger”).
     The tender offer was consummated on February 25, 2011.
     As a result of the tender offer, Purchaser acquired approximately 66% of the outstanding shares of Common Stock. Pursuant to the Merger Agreement, all of the stock option and other equity incentive plans of the Company have been terminated as of February 25, 2011. Accordingly, the Company has terminated all offerings of its securities pursuant to its existing registration statements, including the Registration Statement.
      In accordance with an undertaking made by the Company in Part II of the Registration Statement to remove from registration, by means of a post-effective amendment, any of the securities registered under the Registration Statement that remain unsold at the termination of the offering, the Company hereby removes from registration all Shares registered under the Registration Statement that remain unsold as of the date of this Post-Effective Amendment No. 1.



     Pursuant to the requirements of the Securities Act of 1933, the registrant certifies that it has reasonable grounds to believe that it meets all of the requirements for filing on Form S-8 and has duly caused this Post-Effective Amendment No. 1 to the Registration Statement on Form S-8 to be signed on its behalf by the undersigned, thereunto duly authorized, in the City of Newton, Commonwealth of Massachusetts, on February 25, 2011.
