P1.9.5 UV-Curable Adhesive as the Low-Cost Material of Choice for Microfluidic Forensic Applications

Ph. Wägli, A. Homsy, P. D. Van Der Wal, N. F. De Rooij & Ch. Berchtold
There is a push towards disposable, polymer-based microfluidic devices for medical and forensic applications to reduce cost and cross contamination between different samples. Therefore, more and more polymer-based systems are developed and they replace the common systems made of silicon or glass. But one of the main challenges of systems made of polymers is the adsorption/absorption of molecules. For microfluidic-based chemical sensors, it is essential that the analyte is not adsorbed on the walls of...
