Polydimethylsiloxane (PDMS) is an appealing silicone elastomer as a base material for microfluidic biomedical applications. Its ability to easily ross-link as well as its favorable physical and chemical properties has enabled a large number of microand nano-cast applications. However, DMS’ hydrophobic surface can be problematic. Two methods presented here address the wettability of PDMS by accumulating or depleting urfactant in PDMS. The surfactant in the cross-linked PDMS matrix is released… CONTINUE READING
