6 March 2014 OSTE: a novel polymer system developed for Lab-on-Chip

OSTE polymer has the aim to address today’s dissemination gap between successful lab-on-chip research and the healthcare setting. We have formulated and demonstrated a novel, superior, polymer system, OSTE, and its manufacturing platform, which is based on the mixture of three monomers: thiols, -enes and epoxies. The uniqueness of the OSTE approach stems from the curing in two distinct steps: after the first cure, an intermediate polymer is formed which is ideally suited for surface modifications and bonding; after the second cure we obtain an inert and robust polymer. Our vision is that OSTE has the potential to form a de-facto standard for research and development of high performance labs-on-chip in academia and industry.
