Microfluidics lab made with PowerPoint and a photocopier
Harvard School of Engineering and Applied Sciences
"Childs designs the microchannel layout in PowerPoint and prints it out. He then photocopies the image on a sheet of transparency film and photocopies it again. And again, repeatedly running the sheet through the photocopieruntil the layered-on ink builds up into an engraving-style bump.This makes a negative mold, which is stamped into a polymer chip, to create the microfluidic device."
