Abstract
We are proposing to develop a highly parallel, rapid prototyping system for the manufacture of microfluidic devices. In this phase II proposal we will build a complete system for making such devices for continued research on fieldable microfluidic systems for use in the military, and in hospitals. The project will also allow manufacturing in widely different materials, and structures, without any post chemical processing necessary. BENEFIT: The commercial benifits and commercial applications are appearing even before we submit this proposal. Two customers (see support letters) are already inquiring about devices. KMLabs plans to use this micromachining system as a foundry for making prototype microfluidic devices, but also as production facility. We are looking to gain investment in this field to further our capability for the production of these devices.
