Paper Abstract

Microfluidic networks suitable for biomedical applications have been fabricated in a variety of polymer materials using micromolding and lamination. By molding several layers of 2D microfluidic patterns in a variety of materials, then laminating together, a wide variety of complex 3D systems with micron sized resolution can be constructed. The process of micromolding and lamination, and the integrated fabrication process for biomedical microfluidic devices is presented. Emphasis is on the practical aspects of fabricating fluidic prototypes in the research laboratory.
