Abstract
Paper-based microfluidics broadens the use of point-of-care devices to applications and situations wherein cost is an important restriction. This study focuses on the REPRAP PRUSA i3 Printer that can print itself a part that combined with an infusion pump extends the capabilities of this printer, which can now create different types of hydrophobic patterns on an abundant, renewable substrate: paper. Different flow rates of the syringe pump and printing velocities are combined to optimize the res...
