Project Public Workshop - Fabrication of Functional Medical Microdevices

Technologies to produce micron-resolution, nanostructured components in fuctional materials, at production cost which is compatible with disposable components.

The Future of Medicine will be universal, remote and personal. This requires the development and manufacturing of pervasive diagnostic and treatment devices with low cost, customized, miniature, disposable components. Their manufacture is one of the current barriers for many future medicine devices, from microfluidic PoCD, to minimal invasive surgical tools.

FaBiMed will develop new manufacturing routes for medical microdevices, based on microreplication. The main objective is to produce micron-resolution, nanostructured components in biocompatible and fuctional materials, at production cost which is compatible with disposable components.

The developments will be demonstrated on real disposable components for medical devices: microfluidic analysis films, transdermal microneedles and intravenous ultrasound microprobe
