Bonding of dissimilar polymer materials for fabrication of microscale devices

Microfluidic systems, also known as “lab-on-a-chip devices”, take advantage of physical forces at the microscale to offer precise control and manipulation of fluids in micron-sized geometries. While these systems promise to revolutionize the life sciences industry, rapid fabrication of these devices during technology development remains a challenge, particularly the critical bonding step between thermoplastic parts.
