Guidelines for Packaging of Microfluidics: Electrical Interconnections
For microfluidic products, packaging has to provide also for fluidic interconnections and in some cases also optical interconnections.
Other requirements are:
- leak free microfluidic channels etc.,
- well defined microfluidic path (no dead volumes, sufficient lengths to ensure laminar flows etc.),
- no incompatible materials in the microfluidic path.
These additional requirements makes a microfluidic package much more complex than an electronic package.
