If you are seeking microfluidic chips with the highest precision and fidelity, silicon is the only choice besides PDMS. Compared to metallic materials, silicon has excellent manufacturability, chemical inertness, and biocompatibility. Optimized polishing methods can result in silicon crystals with atomically smooth surfaces. Silicon has been widely used in microfluidic chips with high complexity and resolution requirements, including microreactors, cell culture units, electrospray devices, and digital microfluidics. Due to its unique physical properties, silicon-based chips have the following advantages:
