Fabrication of microfluidic devices using polydimethylsiloxane

Biomicrofluidics. 2010 Mar 15;4(2):026502. doi: 10.1063/1.3259624.


Polydimethylsiloxane (PDMS) is nearly ubiquitous in microfluidic devices, being easy to work with, economical, and transparent. A detailed protocol is provided here for using PDMS in the fabrication of microfluidic devices to aid those interested in using the material in their work, with information on the many potential ways the material may be used for novel devices.
