Practical and actionable information for CTO’s, CSO’s, scientists and engineers who need to develop low cost microfluidic cartridges or chips (instrument-driven or not) to implement assays developed in the laboratory. Topics include: 1. The manufacturability of micron scale features such as microfluidic channels. Costs considerations thereof in both development and production. Solutions to these challenges. 2. Microfluidic Volumes - how small is too small? Metering small volumes and tolerance considerations. Balancing reagent cost vs cartridge cost. Mixing characterization. 3. Workflow Considerations and Tradeoffs. Defining workflow for automation. On-instrument vs on-cartridge functions. Reagent considerations including storage and integration.
