Abstract

Finding out a rapid and reliable bonding method for plastic microfluidic chips with PCR functions is challenging for analytical chemistry and biochemistry. A rapid, reliable covalent bonding method is introduced for fabricating PMMA PCR biochips with long channels and thin walls. The bonding strength of ∼5 MPa was obtained and bulk cohesive failure occurred during tensiling tests. Preliminary leaking tests indicate that photolamination bonding can be implemented readily in the fabrication of PMMA PCR biochips.
