SIMTech Microfluidics Research Foundry focuses on polymer-based microfluidic device design, fabrication and characterisation, including rapid prototyping and pilot manufacturing. Our strength is the combination and integration of SIMTech technologies in forming, machining, substrate and surface technologies, mechatronics, and precision measurements for the development of high quality microfluidic devices.
The cleanroom facility includes a complete microfabrication line for polymer-based microfluidic devices, comprising injection molding, hot embossing, casting, photolithography and metallisation. A full range of measurement tools for characterisation of mechanical, fluidic, optical and electrical properties of microfluidic devices is available. In addition, technical solutions on packaging, interfacing and integration for microfluidic devices/systems based on SIMTech's comprehensive experience in product development and system integration are provided.
