  • Publication number: 20150298127
    Abstract: Disclosed is a fluidic chip or the like comprising a structure that does not leak a fluid to the exterior. This fluidic chip has at least two elastic members layered in an intermediate layer provided between a top substrate and a bottom substrate. An attached region, in which the elastic members are mutually attached, and a first non-attached region, in which the elastic members are not attached, are provided between the elastic member layers, and a recess in which a fluid can be stored is formed in the top substrate. In addition, the fluidic chip is provided with a through-hole that communicates between the bottom of the recess and one elastic member, of the at least two elastic members, that is attached to the top substrate side. A channel for the fluid is formed by mutual separation of the layers that form the first non-attached region in accordance with the pressurization by the fluid. The fluid that passes through the region is stored in the recess via the through-hole.
