Synthetic microfluidic paper
2015 (English)In: Proceedings of the IEEE International Conference on Micro Electro Mechanical Systems (MEMS), IEEE conference proceedings, 2015, no February, 10-13 p.Conference paper (Refereed)
We introduce a polymer synthetic microfluidic paper for lateral flow devices. The aim is to combine the high surface area of paper, or nitrocellulose, with the repeatability, controlled structure, and transparency of polymer micropillars. Our synthetic paper consists of a dense, high aspect ratio array of transparent pillars that are slanted and mechanically interlocked. We describe the manufacturing using multidirectional UV lithography and demonstrate successful capillary pumping of whole blood.
