Microfluidic structures are used in medical technology and allow investigation or control of the tiniest quantities of fluid, within the nano-liter range. Producing micro-channels and cavities often pushes conventional machining technology to its limits. As a producer of lithographically manufactured microfluidic structures, temicon offers the advantages of tiny, highly precise structure dimensions, low roughness values and minimal edge rounding. Due to worldwide demand for faster, more cost-efficient diagnostics, use of microfluidic chips has become ever more important in recent years.
