Abstract [en]

In this article we introduce a novel polymer platform based on off-stoichiometry thiol–enes (OSTEs), aiming to bridge the gap between research prototyping and commercial production of microfluidic devices. The polymers are based on the versatile UV-curable thiol–ene chemistry but takes advantage of off-stoichiometry ratios to enable important features for a prototyping system, such as one-step surface modifications, tuneable mechanical properties and leakage free sealing through direct UV-bonding. The platform exhibits many similarities with PDMS, such as rapid prototyping and uncomplicated processing but can at the same time mirror the mechanical and chemical properties of both PDMS as well as commercial grade thermoplastics. The OSTE-prepolymer can be cast using standard SU-8 on silicon masters and a table-top UV-lamp, the surface modifications are precisely grafted using a stencil mask and the bonding requires only a single UV-exposure. To illustrate the potential of the material we demonstrate key concepts important in microfluidic chip fabrication such as patterned surface modifications for hydrophobic stops, pneumatic valves using UV-lamination of stiff and rubbery materials as well as micromachining of chip-to-world connectors in the OSTE-materials.

Abstract [en]

This thesis presents technological advancements in microfluidics. The overall goals of the work are to develop new miniaturized tests for point-of-care diagnostics and robust super-lubricating surfaces for friction reduction. To achieve these goals, novel materials, surfaces and manufacturing methods in microfluidics have been developed.

Point-of-care diagnostic tests are portable miniaturized instruments that downscale and automate medical tests previously performed in the central laboratories of hospitals. The instruments are used in the doctor’s office, in the emergency room or at home as self-tests. By bringing the analysis closer to the patient, the likelihood of an accurate diagnosis, or a quick therapy adjustment is increased. Already today, there are point-of-care tests available on the market, for example blood glucose tests, rapid streptococcus tests and pregnancy tests. However, for more advanced diagnostic tests, such as DNA-tests or antibody analysis, integration of microfluidic functions for mass transport and sample preparation is required. The problem is that the polymer materials used in academic development are not always suited for prototyping microfluidic components for sensitive biosensors. Despite the enormous work that has gone into the field, very few technical solutions have been implemented commercially.

The first part of the work deals with the development of prototype point of-care tests. The research has focused on two major areas: developing new manufacturing methods to leverage the performance of existing materials and developing a novel polymer material platform, adapted for the extreme demands on surfaces and materials in miniaturized laboratories. The novel manufacturing methods allow complex 3D channel networks and the integration of materials with different surface properties. The novel material platform is based on a novel off-stoichiometry formulation of thiol-enes (OSTE) and has very attractive material and manufacturing properties from a lab-on-chip perspective, such as, chemically stable surfaces, low absorption of small molecules, facile and inexpensive manufacturing process and a biocompatible bonding method. As the OSTE-platform can mirror many of the properties of commercially used polymers, while at the same time having an inexpensive and facile manufacturing method, it has potential to bridge the gap between research and commercial production.

Friction in liquid flows is a critical limiting factor in microfluidics, where friction is the dominant force, but also in marine applications where frictional losses are responsible for a large part of the total energy consumption of sea vessels. Microstructured surfaces can drastically reduce the frictional losses by trapping a layer of air bubbles on the surface that can act as an air bearing for the liquid flow. The problem is that these trapped air bubbles collapse at the liquid pressures encountered in practical applications.

The last part of the thesis is devoted to the development of novel low fluidfriction surfaces with increased robustness but also with active control of the surface friction. The results show that the novel surfaces can resist up to three times higher liquid pressure than previous designs, while keeping the same friction reducing capacity. The novel designs represent the first step towards practical implementation of micro-structured surfaces for friction reduction.
