accurate technique to create fluidic channels and


interconnections,


because of the use of a lithographic mask position accuracy is very good, within 2 µm.


The feature size


accuracy is about 25 µm. Further powderblasting


makes it possible to be flexible on the layout and design of the holes and channels.
