Microfluidics research using an Ultimaker 2

Recommended Posts

Posted · Microfluidics research using an Ultimaker 2

I found an interesting research paper posted online about microfluidics research (using extremely small fluid channels for research, to isolate and examine single cells for example) where they examined the possibility of creating microfluidics systems using FDM, specifically an Ultimaker 2 printer. Figured I'd share it with the rest of you all - it's not really my field, but seriously cool either way:

I'm not a researcher, just an enthusiast, and I am wondering if the small scale of this work can be used to make fluidic circuits. If so, a 3D printed calculalting machine could possibly be created, perhaps?

That is really cool.

I am actually surprised that it works without leaking everywhere between the seams, on this small scale.

Maybe i missed the files in the paper, but is there any chance you could share the 3d files ?  These are awesome!!
