Injection Molding is the go-to choice for
producing intricate microfluidic structures with precision. It's ideal for projects requiring complex designs while maintaining exceptional quality.

Why Injection Molding?

Scalability

R2R processes are highly scalable, allowing for the cost-effective mass production of microfluidic devices.

High Throughput

The continuous nature of R2R fabrication enables high-throughput production.

Flexibility

R2R can be used with a variety of flexible substrates, including polymers and flexible electronics, allowing for versatile design options.

Cost-Effective:

Efficient processes minimize production costs, making it a budget-friendly option for large-scale projects.

Rapid Prototyping

R2R can be used for rapid prototyping of microfluidic devices before transitioning to large-scale manufacturing.

Limitations and Considerations

  • The initial setup for Injection Molding can involve higher tooling costs compared to other replication methods. This cost can be a barrier for small-scale projects or prototypes.

  • The creation of molds and tooling may result in longer lead times before production can commence. It's important to plan accordingly, especially for time-sensitive projects.

  • Highly complex microfluidic designs may require intricate molds and specialized equipment. Ensuring the feasibility of replication for extremely intricate structures is crucial.

  • While Injection Molding offers material versatility, certain materials may have limitations in terms of chemical compatibility with specific fluids. Careful material selection is necessary to avoid interactions that could affect chip performance.

  • Injection Molding processes require strict quality control to ensure consistent chip quality. Deviations in parameters or variations in materials can impact the final product.

  • Some Injection Molding providers may
    have MOQ requirements, which could be a consideration for smaller projects.
