In Search of MEMS standards
EEJournal By Bryon Moyer
"Instead, the disposables should have all necessary materials (aside from the test sample) pre-loaded, the equipment then simply reads and delivers the result. Put all of this together, and you need to start standardizing the way the equipment interfaces with the disposable. Hence a small, growing body of microfluidics standards-again, starting with basics. SEMI has so far contributed three standrds:
According to Mr. Crockett, MS1 and MS4 have achieved good uptake; the others aren't completely inactive, but they lag behind. Packaging and reliability are additional areas that have been identified as needing stardards work within SEMI, but, at present, they don't have permanent leaders in place (there's an acting leader for the packaging area), and so they lie fallow for the moment. Mark Tondra, of Diagnostic Biosensors, noted that this industry isn't really big enough to have captured the attention of NIST yet."
