Soft lithography fabrication of index-matched microfluidic devices for reducing artifacts in fluorescence and quantitative phase imaging
(Diane N. H. Kim et al, December, 2017)
This publication describes the use of MY Polymers MY-133-V2000 (Refractive Index = 1.33) for constructing microfluidic devices for biological applications (*). This enables index matching with an aqueous solution, which significantly reduces optical distortions in fluorescence imaging and in quantitative phase imaging. The publication includes a detailed description of the construction method.
(*) BIO-133 is a new version of MY-133-V2000, which was designed for biological applications. It has significantly reduced cyto-toxicity and fluorescence.
