Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution book


A polymer microfluidic device for the formation of artificial bilayer lipid membranes (BLMs) on-chip is described. Using rapid fabrication techniques, devices were produced from thin, transparent polymeric films, so as to enable simulataneous optical and electrical monitoring of BLMs. BLMs have been successfully produced within the device.
