The attractiveness of 3D printing technology in the microfluidic field is growing, specifically stereolithographic (SLA) type 3D printers, owing to their low cost, versatility, fast and easy micro resolution fabrication capability. The traditional microfabrication method doesn’t allow fast device prototyping that is stand-alone and without the needs of laboratory personnel and equipment. This presentation will introduce the 3D printing based microfabrication of microfluidic devices and engage the third-dimensional control of fluids and cells, which can lead to much quicker and more powerful prototyping and discovery in biomedical sensing and tissue engineering.
1. obtain knowledge and technique of the state-of-the-art 3D printing employed in making the lab on chip/microfluidic device.
2. Gain scientific insight into the biomedical problems that can be solved using 3D microfluidic technology.
