Layout of Ports for PDMS microfluidic Devices

 Standardization of microfluidic chips is accepted as important as the cost of chips and high-throughput analysis.

 Microfluidics as a novel technology, today it is at initial steps and needs standardization. The chips and microchannels, all have a standard layout of ports which is both suitable for various top-side connectors and multi-pipettes.
