Abstract

Paper-based diagnostic devices have been popularly studied in the last decades, as low-cost alternatives to conventional point-of-care diagnostic tools, especially for use in developing countries which lack basic infrastructure and trained personnel. Here, we present a novel fabrication technique through the use of laser-induced ptoto-polymerisation for fabrication of fluidic channels in paper. This technology is not only for the device fabrication but also allows the introduction of flow control and 3D flow-path during the same fabrication procedure hence brings in a range of additional functionalities. Finally, this technique is inherently flexible, cheap, fast and most importantly, suitable for mass-market applications.
