The PDMS prepolymer is the elastomer PDMS material, also known as silicone rubber, is one of the commonly used polymers in the microfluidic chip. It can transmit ultraviolet and visible light above 250nm. It’s durable, non-toxic, and cheap, with specific chemical inert; It’s reversible and repeated deformation without permanent damage, people can reproduce microfluidic chip by molding. Microchannel surfaces on chips can be modified in various ways; they can bond not only to themselves irreversibly but also to glass, silicon, silicon dioxide, and oxide polymers.
