One critical challenge in developing innovative nanochannel-based sensors for bio/chemical analyses is to build multiscale structures composed of narrow, long and continuous fluidic nanochannels and microfluidic networks at low cost. We presents a novel process using direct imprinting into polymer substrates to produce the nanofluidic sensor structure for single molecular analysis in a cost-effective way. The key for the process is to use polymer stamps to reduce stress generated during imprinting.
