OCT 17-18, 2013
Firsts tests using 3D printing for microfluidic chip prototyping and fabrication.
Next time I need to continue the thermal annealing experiment, go beyond 150C.
We also need to test other designs with better sceals.

OCT 22, 2013
Thermal post-treatment of the polymer 3D printed part. Temp. set at 160C.
I also successfully transferred a micropattern from Spot-e to PCL
