Description and mission
The development of microfluidic chips is challenging, especially for a medium-sized enterprise. Such a microfluidic chip is at the heart of PESSL’s iMETOS MobiLab technology. The problems the company presently is facing have to do with a suitable mass manufacturing process. Currently, production is done in an economically not viable process involving various manual manufacturing steps. For this reason, PESSL intends to move to photonics-based mastering of fluidic structures and photonics-based chip replication. These manufacturing processes should be investigated in the suggested project.
The research leading to these results has received funding from the European Union Horizon 2020 under Grant Agreement nº 779472.
