This work describes a preliminary investigation of commercially available 3D printing technologies for rapid prototyping and low volume fabrication of Lab-on-a-Chip devices. The main motivation of the work was to use off-the-shelf 3D printing methods in order to rapidly and inexpensively build microfluidic devices with complex geometric features and reduce the use of conventional microfabrication techniques. Areas covered include:

Additive manufacture of microfluidic devices

Multi-jet modelling (MJM)

Stereolithography (SLA)

Biocompatibility of 3D printed materials
