Paper Abstract

Two constructions of microfluidic structures are described in this paper. A fiber optic chemical coupler and a microcell for spectrophotometric measurements were designed and tested. The structures were made of polymer optical fibers (PMMA) which were incorporated into polymeric material i.e. poly(dimethylsiloxane). The structures were tested as detectors in refractometric experiment (saccharose solutions with different concentrations were used), in absorbance measurement (solutions of a bromothymol blue with different pH were used) and in fluorescence tests (solution of erythrosine was used).
