CADworks μMicrofluidics 3D Printer

For Academic & Professional Applications

The Microfluidic Chip

Accurate and Productive

The unique needs of microfluidic technology can only be met with a high resolution printer. With it you can achieve a XY resolution of 30μm to 65 μm and a Z-axis resolution ranging from 5μm to 100μm (Resin dependent).

Top End Capabilities

The CADworks μMicrofluidics 3D Printer utilizes cutting-edge DLP technology, chip solution that combines sophisticated optics and project accuracy to bring out the exact details of your microfluidic model.

Meeting Your Needs

High Precision Accuracy

The CADworks μMicrofluidics 3D Printer enables high resolution and accurate printing without sacrificing productivity and quality. With its large build platform, it gives the user the ability to print more models in one single printing session. The CADworks μMicrofluidics 3D Printer is capable of building models up to 125mm x 70mm at 65um to 57mm x 32mm at 30um (Depending on the resolution required). This makes the CADworks μMicrofluidics ideal for micro structure applications.

What Makes the CADworks 3D Printer an Ideal Printer for Microfluidics ?

The MiiCraft provides a good compromise among price, resolution, size and ability to make transparent microchips in the visible spectrum, with devices showing acceptable transmittance above 430 nm. The print time of simple microfluidic devices can be as low as 12 min with a material cost of $1 per device, making this an attractive approach for rapid prototyping. While this may seem trivial for laboratories with substantial funds, it will expand the scope of microfluidics to be readily available to researchers on a limited budget. A complex 3D microfluidic structure was developed for continuous nitrate analysis. The device comprised three fluidic layers (sample, reagent, and standard addition of nitrite), micromixers, and a series of detection cells with depths increasing from 0.5 to 15 mm to increase the linear range of the colorimetric assay. This complex microdevice was printed in <5 h and was used to determine the level of nitrate in tap water, with levels agreeing with values determined using an off-chip assay. The low cost of the printer and the simplicity with which complex 3D microfluidic devices operate offer great potential for improved development of microfluidic applications. [1] [2]
