Fast point-of-use detection of early-stage zoonoses is beneficial for animal husbandry as it can save livestock and prevent farmers from going bankrupt after an outbreak. This paper describes the first steps towards a fully integrated and disposable DNA amplification chip. Based on the analysis of the milling process, metal adhesion study, COMSOL Multiphysics heat transfer simulations and chip characterization a feasible fabrication process is set up and the first batch of chips has been fabricated.
