High resolution 3D-printer for prototyping of fluidic cell or other mechanical parts.


A high-resolution 3D printer represents a state-of-the-art additive manufacturing tool that excels in producing intricate and finely detailed objects with remarkable precision. This cutting-edge technology enables the creation of complex structures layer by layer, offering resolutions that reach down to micron-level accuracy.

These printers employ a range of materials, including plastics, ceramics, silicone, expanding their applicability across diverse fields. 

For microfluidics design, the printer’s high precision allows the creation of complex networks of channels and chambers with micron-level accuracy. This is instrumental in developing lab-on-a-chip devices, diagnostic tools, and fluid-handling systems for point of use application.

Technical specifications:

– Maximum size: typically size of a microscope slide

– Resolution: typically 100 micrometers

Case study:

The user can quickly and iteratively fabricate custom made microfluidic channels for optical or electrochemical sensors.
