Medical device fabrication employing femtosecond 3D hybrid additive-subtractive micro-structuringThursday (25.06.2020) 14:30 - 14:50 Room 3
We demonstrate how medical device fabrication can benefit from 3D additive-subtractive fs processing. The produced functional elements include electromechanical flow meter capable of precisely measuring flow down to nl/min and cell membrane perforators. Both structures are needed for novel treatment methodologies based on precise drug delivery and/or cell therapies. Furthermore, microfluidical macromolecule separator based on integrated nanofilters (down to 250 nm) is produced to be used in drug development. Polymer, glass and metal components are incorporated during manufacturing process. Structure quality is evaluated, with heavy emphasis on how enhance their performance. The capability of freely choosing between additive and subtractive structuring in one highly automated workstation simplifies design and fabrication process. Practical considerations when realizing additive-subtractive fs 3D fabrication are discussed, giving an insight on the future prospects of the approach.
