Paper Abstract

Over the last ten years, LLNL has been developing Microtechnology for instrumentation with applications in the biosciences and environment. In order to build and field high- performance instruments, we have often had to alter our original premises and assumptions, significantly. This meant that we were forced to abandon materials and dimensions that were appealing to us when we began the R&D. Examples include our work on silicon-based electrophoresis systems, etched- fluidics for sample/sheath flow nozzles in flow cytometers, and polymerase-chain-reaction thermal-cycling chambers based on silicon-nitride. This presentation will discuss these and our work on other devices and instruments.
