A hybrid process compatible with reel-to-reel manufacturing is developed for ultra low-cost large-scale manufacture of disposable microfluidic chips. It combines ultra-short laser microstructuring and lamination technology. Microchannels in polyester foils were formed using focused, high-intensity femtosecond laser pulses. Lamination using a commercial SU8-epoxy resist layer was used to seal the microchannel layer and cover foil. This hybrid process also enables heterogeneous material structuration and integration.
