  1. Low-Cost Microfluidic Single-Use and On-Board Reagent Storage Using Laser-Printer Technology J. L. Garcia-Cordero, F. Benito-Lopez, D. Diamond, J. Duceree, and A. J. Ricco, MEMS 2009 Shau-Chieh Wang (王少傑) -- January 5, 2010 -- NTHU / MSE 1

  3. Introduction Point-of-care (POC) diagnostic devices require portability, disposability, low-cost, simplicity of use, and temperature independence. Microfluidic and lab-on-a-chip technologies have the potential and the toolset to make POC diagnostic systems a reality. The complexities of integrating and fabricating them at low cost are many and the challenges are daunting. This paper presented a technology for low-cost production of valves that can enable on-chip long-tern wet reagent storage. NTHU / MSE 3

  4. Introduction The storage of reagents inside plastic tubing in liquid plugs separated by air. This method does not provide a sealed physical barrier is ill-suited to storage beyond a few hours. A simple single-use valve is used to alternate it. V. Linder et al. Anal. Chem. 77, 64 (2005) NTHU / MSE 4

  5. Design and Operation of the Valves NTHU / MSE 5

  6. Design of the Storage Reservoirs NTHU / MSE 6

  7. Fabrication This paper used CO2 laser to cut polymer layers and laminated by a thermal roller laminator. A laser-printer (resolution: 600 dpi) was used to print dots onto a transparency film. Devices were mounted in a disk, and a DC motor was used to rotate the disk. A laser diode (wavelength 650 nm, power 150mW) was used to melt the plastic in less than one second. NTHU / MSE 7

  10. Conclusions This paper presented new laser-printed valves which can store solutions for 30 days without mechanical components in the valve and its actuation. This technology can be adapted to multilevel microfluidics where layers of microfluidic channels are separated by valve layers. This technology is simple, low cost, and using lower laser powers to other technologies. NTHU / MSE 10

  11. Future work • The future work will involve the full characterization of laser valves. • Melting temperatures • The effects of any chemically active residue of the melting process NTHU / MSE 11
