Paper Title:
Design and Fabrication of Micro Hot Embossing Mold for Microfluidic Chip Used in Flow Cytometry
  Abstract

Micro hot embossing mold of microfluidic chip used in flow cytometry is designed and microfabricated. After some kinds of microfabrication processes are tried, this paper presents a novel microfabrication technology of micro hot embossing metal mold. Micro metal mold is fabricated by low-cost UV-LIGA surface micro fabrication process using negative thick photoresist, SU-8. Different from other micro hot embossing molds, the micro mold with vertical sidewalls is fabricated by micro nickel electroforming directly on Nickel base. Based on the micro Nickel mold and automation fabrication system, high precision and mass-producing microfluidic chips have been fabricated and they have been used in flow cytometry
