Microfluidics channels as small as 50 μm in width were produced via extrusionbased 3D printing. Multi-layered, multi-electrode devices were fabricated with inlaid conductive filament. Electrodes were used for simple electroanalysis of proteins. Prototyping of microfluidics devices via extrusion-based 3D printing may ultimately allow for an easy, cost-effective, high-throughput, high-resolution, and single-step method of rapidly prototyping electronic microfluidic devices, principally suited for use in diagnostics applications.
