Synergy of 3D printing and injection molding: A new prototyping method for rapid design optimization and manufacturing of microfluidic devices
A new rapid prototyping method is reported. It is based on injection molding with inexpensive mold inserts, 3D-printed in durable polymer-based materials. The method allows for manufacturing of microfluidics in common thermoplastics materials at a lower cost and with shorter lead-times compared to i...
New allergy test promises safer antibiotic use
Allergies to antibiotics are the commonest form of medication allergies and, in the worst cases, can result in anaphylaxis and death. SINTEF is participating in the development of a new allergy test that will make it easier to provide patients with safe and correct treatments....
Paper microfluidics play an increasing role in biomedical research. This interest is attributed to the technological simplicity, the considerably lower costs compared to other fabrication approaches, as well as good compatibility with many bioanalytical procedures. A paper-based analytical device ca...
Fabrication and characterisation of a test platform integrating nanoporous structures with biochemical functionality
A versatile fabrication and assembly approach for microfluidic capturing of extracellular vesicles
Cells communicate by means of "messengers" known as extracellular vesicles, i.e. small (30‐1000 nm) cell derived vesicles released from almost all eukaryotic cells into their extracellular environment and containing a variety of proteins and RNAs . It has been foreseen that the next generation of...

ANALYSIS OF RESIDUAL STRESS AND THERMAL HYSTERESIS IN SPUTTERED ALUMINIUM THIN FILMS
This work concerns optimization of properties of aluminium (Al) thin films with respect to residual stress and thermal hysteresis. Controlling residual stress and minimizing the effect of thermal hysteresis is critical in a wide range of MEMS components. Throughout the study we used wafer curvature,...
