(Use the PDMS casting station on the second floor, if you don't need the clean room)
You may request training for the plasma generator alone or for the entire suite of PDMS-casting tools (ovens, vacuum chamber, scale, etc.) as needed.
For tool training, please contact the Tool Manager(s).
- No flammable materials or liquids allowed
- No uncured PDMS allowed.
The plasma generator can be used to temporarily charge surfaces or increase wetability of substrates. A plasma is generated from room air (ozone). No other gases are available at this time.
- Generate room air (ozone) plasma at room temperature.
- Adhering PDMS to glass for assembling microfluidic devices
- Altering the wetabilitiy (increased hydrophilicity) of substrates temporarily.
