Using fab

Pmma Optical 2004 - Copyrication techniques originally developed for microelectronics, networks of fluidic channels can be created. We employ this technology to produce small-scale devices for detection of pathogens and other analytes of interest. Our fabrication technologies include photolithography, softlithography and nanoimprinting technology. An outstanding micromill allows us to do rapid prototyping and to create complex microfluidic structures either directly in polymer substrates or within metal templates. Laser scribing is another technology we can employ for the generation of larger microchannels as well as for the development of laser-scribed graphene electrodes. These are highly porous graphitic electrodes made on polyimide foils with interesting electrochemical characteristics.
