Objectives

The two main objectives of the MFManufacturing project are:

1) To propose standards for interconnections and process integration in order to respectively enhance interoperability and increase the volume of Microfluidic devices and facilitate the manufacturing flow between partners. The anticipated standardization in the microfluidics field – first of all aimed at strengthening Europe’s position – will focus on increasing maturity in:

a. Alignment of microfluidic functions, focusing both on existing and novel functional modules and their interoperability

b. Alignment of microfluidic manufacturing processes, focusing on both hybrid integration processes and on selected de-centralized manufacturing processes

2) To organize the European network of Microfluidic SME and RTO manufacturers Distributed Pilot Line (DPL) with distributed manufacturing resources from different manufacturers in order to provide affordable complex MF devices.
