Researchers at Purdue University have developed a method for using additive manufacturing to fabricate sub-100 μm microfluidic channels using cophase flow of an epoxy resin and a support liquid. By using a support liquid with low viscosity, the challenges associated with removing excess material from the channels are minimized, thus reducing cost and improving scalability. This technology has applications in biotechnology, drug discovery and delivery, and more throughout the life science space.

- Sub-100 μm channel width
- No removal of excess material required
- Lower cost and improved scalability compared to current methods
