Abstract
Paper based microfluidic assays can provide reliable medical results without the need of an important infrastructure. Currently, paper-based microfluidics manufacturing is based on wax printers, and chromatography papers, with a strong refining process that increases their manufacturing costs. In this work, papers obtained from sisal cellulose are analyzed (density/refining velocity/pore size) to produce low-cost microfluidics assays. According to the results, sisal papers with low density (<0.5...
