Shrinky Dink Devices

Children's toy simplifies fabrication of molds for microfluidic devices
Department: Science & Technology

A new method makes fabricating microfluidic devices almost as easy as child's play. Michelle Khine and her coworkers at the University of California, Merced, and UC Berkeley, use the children's toy Shrinky Dinks to construct molds for microfluidic devices (Lab Chip, DOI: 10.1039/b711622e). Khine and coworkers have used the method to make a functional microfluidics-based gradient generator and are working on other devices.

When Khine, an . . .
