Three-dimensional Printing of Thermoplastic Materials to Create Automated Syringe Pumps with Feedback Control for Microfluidic Applications Ming-Cheng Chen*1, John R. Lake*1, Keith C. Heyde2, Warren C. Ruder1,2 1Department of Bioengineering, University of Pittsburgh, 2Department of Mechanical Engineering, Carnegie Mellon University Here we present a protocol to construct a pressure-controlled syringe pump to be used in microfluidic applications. This syringe pump is made from an additively manufactured body, off-the-shelf hardware, and open-source electronics. The resulting system is low-cost, straightforward to build, and delivers well-regulated fluid flow to enable rapid microfluidic research.
