Maskless Aligner Technology for Thick Resist Applications
Heidelberg Instruments Mikrotechnik GmbH --- GERMANY
The Maskless Aligner series was first introduced in 2015. Since then, the maskless technology has become firmly established in research labs worldwide as well as in many small to mid-volume micro fabrication facilities. Application areas include MEMS, microfluidics, micro-optics, sensors, electronic components and many more. This presentation will give you an insight into our maskless lithography technology with emphasis on thick resist applications and benefits for microfluidic applications in particular.
Fast Prototyping of Microfluidic Devices by SLA/DLP 3D Printers
Nehir Biyoteknoloji Ltd. --- TURKIYE
3D Printers are important elements for microfluidic research in current time. Our team use this technique for fabrication of various accessories to be used together with PDMS microfluidic devices such as fittings, connectors, holders, molds, manual valves, power free actuators, sensor cartridges, instrument prototypes, and more. 3D printing of these components both provide quick and affordable mass fabrication and more importantly ensure custom fabrication for the needs of special designs of the research. Although its increased popularity, the main limiting factor is the materials to be used with chips and it is needed to have better composite resins for biological and chemical studies.
