FaBiMed - Fabrication and Functionalization of BioMedical Microdevices


The aim of FaBiMed was to improve and develop new manufacturing techniques, based on micromoulding, specifically for biomedical microdevices.

The project has contributed to reducing the cost of mass production of diagnosis and therapeutic micro devices which have a common problem: medium-sized batches, customisation needs, micron-scale geometrical features. These include optofluidic sensors (MIR technology) used for different lab-on-a-chip diagnostic systems as well as micro-needle arrays used for drug delivery and micro-piezo devices for intravascular ultrasound (IVUS) and similar medical imaging techniques.
