Abstract

In this paper, we present a hybrid PDMS/paper-based passive pump for slow drug delivery in chronic wounds. The pump consists of a PDMS microfluidic network that is irreversibly bonded to the polyethylene-coated (hydrophobic) side of a commercially-available freezer paper. The opposite (hygroscopic/hydrophilic) side of the freezer paper is connected to the PDMS microchannels to provide wicking-induced flow for slow drug delivery to the wound bed. The pump is characterized with various microchannel widths and liquid viscosities (i.e., by dissolving PVP in the drug). The results show that at higher viscosities the pump can achieve flow rates as small as 0.4 μl/min.
