Plastic-based Microfluidics and Nanofluidics
Held in conjunction with Lab-on-a-Chip and Microfluidics World Congress 2022
12 Dec 2022, at 10:00-12:00 in Long Beach, California
Steve Soper, Foundation Distinguished Professor; Director, Center of BioModular Multi-scale System for Precision Medicine, Adjunct Professor, Ulsan National Institute of Science & Technology, The University of Kansas
Training Course Title: Plastic-based Microfluidics and Nanofluidics
Training Course Date: Monday - December 12, 2022
Training Course Timings: 10:00am to 12:00pm -- Caribbean Room
Scope and Coverage of this Training Course:
This workshop will offer participants the opportunity to learn about building functional devices in thermoplastics, such as PMMA, polycarbonate (PC), cyclic olefin copolymer (COC), and cyclic olefin polymer (COP) as well as other plastics and become familiar with the advantages of using plastic microfluidics. Different methods for building molding tools with mixed scales (nm ? mm) will be discussed and then, different methods for producing plastic devices (rapid prototyping to high-scale production). Participants will learn about device assembly, modifying the surface properties of plastics and become familiar with a number of important application areas – microfluidics and nanofluidics for biological/biomedical applications. Below is a list of topical areas that will be covered in this workshop.
