Abstract

This paper provides new insights into the process of rapid, low-cost and large-scale fabrication of polymer microfluidic chips containing three-dimensional microstructures using in point of care devices, for applications such as detection of pathogens via a molecular diagnostic method, namely polymerase chain reaction (PCR). The details of fabrication methods are described. Do’s and don’ts are given to help both the experimentalist in labs and in industrial production to avoid doom fabrication issues.
