Fabrication Challenges in Early Stage Startups

Fabrication Challenges in Early Stage Startups

When commercializing a microfluidic technology, you start with a contraption put together from wires, tubing, pumps, power supplies, and microscopes, and you turn it into an instrument other labs can buy from a catalog-like a plate reader. Part of this journey is a transformation of your fabrication techniques. Here we will talk about the fabrication challenges when commercializing a microfluidic technology in an early stage startup; we will not look into other aspects of product development. Furthermore, we will mostly discuss the fabrication of microfluidic components and not other components like printed circuit boards. (more…)
