B3.3 - Fabrication of Microfluidic Devices Using SU-8 for Detection and Analysis of Viruses

Claudia Garcia, Walter Lang, Anna Schomacker, Ingo Klarholz & Carsten Harms
A passive microfluidic device using SU-8 photoresist has been developed for detection and analysis of viruses. Due to its high aspect ratio with almost vertical sidewalls and its chemical stability, SU-8 offers a wide variety of applications in the fabrication of microfluidic systems. This photoresist is transparent allowing optical detection and thus, identification of biomolecules. Additionally, SU-8 shows a good biocompatibility offering the possibility to develop assay on the surface that allows the specific binding...
