Laser photolithography & UV exposure :
Microfluidics is a fairly new technology that is being developed in numerous sectors of activity, such as medical analysis, medical research and industry, biotechnologies, the food industry and cosmetics.
The aim of microfluidics is to permit an acute analysis of certain cells and to be able to treat an analysis almost cell by cell. It also allows the acceleration of certain reactions between cells, reagents and molecules. Microfluidics also allows to simulate the functioning of certain live organs or groups of organs by producing so called lab on a chip or organ on a chip.
The production of these increasingly complex micro-fluidic devices necessitates a precision and a surface rendering that the traditional polymers or glass etching methods that cannot satisfy. The researchers and industrials from this field are more and more calling for thick layers of photoresist (up to several hundreds of microns). In order to satisfy them, Kloé has developed a wide range of dedicated equipment (UV KUB and Dilase) that offer a unique performance to pattern thick layers with the same rendering, control and precision as in thin layers, while remaining easy to use (user-friendly), compact and secure for the users.
