Abstract

In this work a polymer monolithic liquid flow controlling system (LFCS) at micro-scale is presented, which enables regulation between 30-230 μl/min with excellent reproducibility and accuracy. The device is made in a single piece by Hot Embossing in Cyclic Olefin Polymer, sealed with a single membrane by solvent bonding and metalized, after sealing, to render a fully functional microfluidic control system with on-chip flow sensing. The fabrication process shows industrial-like quality in terms of dimensional control and reproducibility, enabling direct transition of validated prototypes into mass-production means i.e. injection molding.
