Introduction of Microfluidic Materials

Microfluidics has properties that make it attractive as practical and feasible tools in biotechnology areas. The knowledge of several possibilities of materials is an important aspect for developing new microfluidic designs with proper applications. The characteristics and properties of the materials used are quite relevant aspects for the desired microfluidic platforms. Commercial microfluidic devices are primarily etched and/or molded from mechanically sturdy and chemically durable materials, such as glass, polydimethylsiloxane (PDMS), and thermoplastics. Glass- and polymer-based microfluidics in biochemical analyses and related applications has made the spectacular success. Not far behind this, the investigation of microfluidic systems in other classes of materials has been rapidly growing.
