Using polystyrene as a fabrication material and pure acetonitrile as a bonding solvent, we have developed an innovative and inexpensive weak-solvent-based chip lamination process to produce highly functional, completely plastic, microfluidic chips with a 3-layer structure. This simple, scalable and rapid method allows active components, such as multiple valves and pumps, to be constructed on chip with a thin, deflectable film as the middle layer sandwiched between two polystyrene layers.
