BEYOND PDMS:: OFF-STOCHIOMETRY THIOL-ENE BASED SOFT LITHOGRAPHY FOR RAPID PROTOTYPING OF MICROFLUIDIC DEVICES

We present an easy to use, rapid fabrication platform for microfluidic systems, based on micro-molding of novel thiolene based polymer formulations. The novel fabrication platform addresses major drawbacks of PDMS by allowing large freedom in material and surface properties, including: (photo)patterning of stable surface modifications, bonding without plasma treatment, rapid UV or thermal curing, variable E-modulus, minimized leaching of uncured components  and suppressed non-specific binding of biomolecules . This process is potentially suited for both rapid prototyping in the laboratory and medium-scale commercial production, bridging the “development gap”.
