Particle/cell analysis is crucial in many health, industrial and environmental monitoring processes. Its integration into miniaturised lab-on-a-chip systems enables a host of portable technologies. However, current lab-on-a-chip lithographical fabrication methods are costly, time-consuming and restrictive in design, impeding their widespread implementation. This has led to 3D printing being explored as an alternative in recent years, due to its ability to form devices in a single step, and its three-dimensional freedom.
