Header and Body 4
- High optical transparency and gas permeability while not absorbing small molecules enables healthy cell culture and easy imaging in the microfluidic devices made of COC.
- Stronger bond strength than PDMS devices decreases breakdown and leaks of device.
- Manufacturing of COC microfluidic devices with simple, safe resources instead of flammable, toxic chemicals or high temperatures.
- Methods for manufacturing features that sense and regulate pressure, allow for precise control of flowrates, and pressure throughout the device.
- Highly tunable design.
