Tetherless, 3D, Micro-Nanoscale Tools and Devices for Lab on a Chip Applications

  • David H Gracias (a1)

On the macroscale, a laboratory scientist uses a large number of tools such as flasks, crucibles, spatulas, filter funnels, test tube holders and grippers. If laboratory procedures are to be miniaturized within chips, micro and nanoscale analogs of these macroscopic tools could provide enhanced functionality. In this paper, I describe research efforts in our group aimed at engineering three dimensional, tetherless and lithographically patterned miniaturized structures for lab on a chip applications.
