3D Printer Yields Ultracompact Microfluidic Device

Facebook Twitter LinkedIn Email Comments
A custom 3D printer built using digital light processor stereolithography (DLP-SLA) has demonstrated the ability to print a viable microfluidic device compact enough to achieve flow channel cross-sections as small as 18 μm × 20 μm. The 3D printer has a projected image plane resolution of 7.6 μm and uses a 385-nm LED. Hua Gong, a Ph.D. student at BYU, holds up a 3D-printed microfluidic device. Courtesy of BYU Photo. Researchers at Brigham Young University (BYU) also developed a low-cost, high-resolution resin. Beginning with 20 candidate absorbers, they used a novel...Read full article
