3D Printed All-liquid "Lab-on-a-Chip" Could Transform Drug Candidate Screens

3D Printed All-liquid "Lab-on-a-Chip" Could Transform Drug Candidate Screens

To make the 3D-printable fluidic device, Berkeley Lab researchers designed a specially patterned glass substrate. When two liquids - one containing nanoscale clay particles, another containing polymer particles - are printed onto the substrate, they come together at the interface of the two liquids and within milliseconds form a very thin channel or tube about 1 millimeter in diameter.
