Abstract

New concept of paper-based devices (we call "paper MEMS chip") and ink-jet printer-like analyzer for clinical diagnostics is presented. A water-resisting paper coated with poly-olefin resin was selected for the chip's material, and the micro-channels were successfully fabricated by using hot-embossing process on the paper. Pressure resistance was evaluated by feeding water into the micro-channel of a paper chip and the channel could stand practical pressure level more than 100 kPa. Liquid flow driven by capillary force was observed in the proto-type of paper MEMS chip.
