A facile and novel fabrication method for paper-based microchips, usually called μPADs (microfluidic paper-based analytical devices) or “lab-on-paper”, has been developed. Through inkjet-printing and green chemical integration technology, lab-on-paper was successfully fabricated. Conductive electrodes were printed on paper substrates prepared from highly-beaten cotton linter pulps. For patterning of microchannels, volatile organic compounds (VOC)-free UV-curable ink was printed as surrounding microchannel patterns followed by UV curing. For enzymatic electrochemical detection, poly(dopamine) (PDA) were used as an immobilization support of enzyme. By applying this method to determination of glucose concentrations, electrochemical response was successfully enhanced.

  • For more than 25 years, NIP has been the leading forum for discussion of advances and new directions in non-impact and digital printing technologies. A comprehensive, industry-wide conference, this meeting includes all aspects of the hardware, materials, software, images, and applications associated with digital printing systems, including drop-on-demand ink jet, wide format ink jet, desktop and continuous ink jet, toner-based electrophotographic printers, production digital printing systems, and thermal printing systems, as well as the engineering capability, optimization, and science involved in these fields.

    Since 2005, NIP has been held in conjunction with the Digital Fabrication Conference.
