The major bottleneck for the commercialization of nanoparticle related technologies is the mass production of the nanoparticles. One approach to overcome this bottleneck is use of microfluidic devices. In this paper, a 3D printed, high throughput micro-reactor that is capable of synthesizing both chitosan and chitosan coated iron oxide nanoparticles is presented.
