Photolithography Enables Mass Production of Microfluidic Chips

Facebook Twitter LinkedIn Email
High-tech printing company Toppan has developed technology to manufacture glass microfluidic chips using photolithography. Mass production of microfluidic chips using the technology will make it possible to produce chips in larger volumes and at lower cost than those manufactured via current injection molding technology, which involves injecting polydimethylsiloxane (PDMS), a type of silicone resin, into a metal mold.
