In this contribution, a new method for the fabrication of complex polymeric microfluidic devices is presented. The technology, contact liquid photolithographic polymerization (CLIPP). overcomes many of the draw backs associated kith other rapid prototyping schemes, such as limited materials choices and time-consuming microassembly protocols. CUPP shares many traits with other photolithographic methods, but three distinct features: (i) liquid photoresists in contact with the photomask. (ii) readily removed sacrificial Materials. and (iii) living radical processes, enable multiple polymeric chemistries and mechanical properties while simultaneously enabling facile fabrication of 3D geometries and surface chemistry control. This contribution details fabrication techniques and methods for the fabrication of high aspect ratio posts covalently bonded to a polymeric substrate, an array of independently stacked bars on top of perpendicular bars, multiple undercut structures fabricated simultaneously, and a complex 3D geometry with intertwined channels.
