Abstract

A facile nonlithographic method for expedient fabrication of microfluidic devices of poly(dimethylsiloxane) is described. Positive-relief masters for the molds are directly printed on smooth substrates. For the formation of connecting channels and chambers inside the polymer components of the microfluidic devices, cavity-forming elements are adhered to the surfaces of the masters. Using this nonlithographic approach, we fabricated microfluidic devices for detection of bacterial spores on the basis of enhancement of the emission of terbium (III) ions.
