Our latest paper on inkjet printed/roll-coated DMF chips was just published in Lab on a Chip. It provides detailed methods for printing electrodes using an off-the-shelf Epson printer and commercial silver ink. This should provide a nice chip fabrication setup for anyone new to DMF.
The roll-coated dielectric/hydrophobic layers are also really cool, but perhaps less useful if you don’t have access to a roll-coater.
A pdf copy is hosted on the lab’s website (along with all of our other papers).
