Paper Abstract

This article presents a synthesis of industrial activity in polymer microcomponents and their use in biological fields. Polymer microtechnologies have emerged in the 90s as a low cost alternative technology to Si and glass micromachining. The launching of the Steag microParts company in 1990 with the FZK Research Center and Pharmacia Biosensor patents, have launched these materials in the MEMS world. Polymers are expected to be increasingly used through the development of microfluidics for bio applications.
