Abstract: Abstract. This paper describes the application of design for microassembly (DµFA) theory to the designing and assembling of biomedical microdevices in order to cope with the market-specific requirements of the biomedical sector which can be seen as one of the most complex industrial areas for microassembly applications. It is shown how DµFA can support the move from the research laboratory to industrial fabrication. The benefits of applying DFµA theory to the development of a biomedical microdevice are clearl…
