Evaluation and optimisation of 3D patterning for fabrication of polymer-based microfluidic devices

 

Miniaturization of laboratory processes with lab-on-a-chip devices yields benefits from short analysis times, low reagent consumption and possible parallelization of processes where many tests can be run simultaneously.
The vision of this project is to provide a universal bench-top prototyping unit that will allow researchers to fabricate lab-on-a-chip devices that fit their specific needs at low cost.
The prototyping unit is based on a roll-to-roll process, known from the printing industry that utilizes fast and automated 3D patterning of light-curable resins. It will allow the in-house production of virtually any nano- and microstructured chip design into different light curable acrylate and thiol-ene based resins.
