dc.description.abstractIn the development of functional lab-on-a-chip (LOC), there is a need to produce a reliable and high pressure connection between capillary tubes and microfluidic devices for carrying fluids. The current technologies still have limitations in achieving ideal interconnection since they are bulky, expensive or complicated. In this paper, a novel connector-free technique using an interference fit mechanism is introduced for world-to-chip interconnection. The proposed technique has considerable potential for replacing current interconnection tools for microfluidic devices due to the advantages including no chemical contamination, easy plugging, enough strength to sustain pressure, high density integration, simple and rapid integration.en_US
