Microfluidic structures are applied in lab-on-a-chip systems in Life science applications in order to enable the investigation or control of smallest amounts of liquids in the nanoliter range.
The format of microfluidic-chips is often equal to slides (26 mm x 76 mm). Such chips combine different functions like transport, separation, mixing, storage and controlling of biomedical liquids. Typical dimensions of microfluidic structures range from some microns up to several hundreds of microns. Such dimensions for micro channels and cavities are often beyond the limits of conventional machining processes.
The fluidic structures of temicon made by lithography offer in such cases the advantage of highly precise structure dimensions, low surface roughness and minimized rounding of edges.
