BYU 3D prints first of its kind sub 100 micron microfluidic chip

Researchers at Brigham Young University (BYU), Utah, are “deliberately trying to start a revolution” in the way chemical testing devices are made. Using a custom built 3D printer, scientists Hua Gong, Bryce Bickham, Adam Woolley and Gregory Nordin, have 3D printed a microfluidic chip at a resolution previously unseen in the industry. The method is poised to crack-open a mode of research that has remained relatively unexplored due to the cost of lab-on-a-chip fabrication. A revolution in the making Gong, Bickham, Woolley and Nordin’s method uses a DLP-SLA 3D printer. Digital render of BYU’s DLP-SLA 3D printer setup. Image […]
