User’s dilemma: Case
Fine bubbles that hinder transfer
There is a demand for the use of PDMS (polydimethylsiloxane, a silicone impression material for high-precision transfer), a material that allows high-definition transfer at submicron level in the biochip manufacturing process.
The two components of PDMS, the base and curing agents, are both transparent liquid, so it is difficult to visually check whether the material is properly mixed.
In order to maximize the original performance of the material, it is necessary to carefully remove fine bubbles that hinder transfer by means of an optimal mixing method.
