  • Patent number: 11950372
    Abstract: Methods of making metal patterns on flexible substrates are provided. Releasable solid layer is selectively formed on a patterned surface of the flexible substrate by applying a liquid solution thereon. Metal patterns on the flexible substrate can be formed by removing the releasable solid layer after metallization. In some cases, the releasable solid layer can be transferred from the patterned surface to a transfer layer where the metal patterns are formed.

  • Patent number: 11744915
    Abstract: Diagnostic devices for quantitative or qualitative analysis of a sample fluid including an analyte include at least two portions made from a hydrophilic material. The planar portions are stacked on each other and each occupy a different and substantially parallel plane to form a three-dimensional structure. At least one of the planar portions includes a hydrophobic region formed by applying a low surface energy material that extends through a thickness of the substrate portion from a first major surface to a second major surface thereof. The hydrophilic regions in the overlying substantially parallel substrate portions can be aligned with each other such that a fluid is passively transported between adjacent hydrophilic regions to provide a sample flow path between adjacent substrate portions.
