Abstract

We describe a low cost and high performance fabrication process to make a polymeric microfluidic device. The original microfluidic device pattern was made of a flat photosensitive sheet in which a mold base device was fabricated using the combined techniques of both electroforming and photolithography. As an example of our novel process, an electrophoresis chip was prepared using poly(methyl methacrylate) (PMMA) for a DNA analysis. The result shows that the fabricated chip has an equivalent DNA separation performance when compared to a similar ready-made product.
