Abstract

 The need for low-cost microfabrication technologies in modern life-sciences is described. The article compares the replication technologies, hot embossing and micro-injection moulding and gives an overview over the technologies used for fabrication of the replication masters. The back-end processes transforming the replicated plastic part into a complete microsystem are described. Some manufacturing issues of mass production are discussed.
