Lab-on-chip systems become increasingly more relevant for biochemical analyses. Here is presented a concept for realizing a small footprint chip by combining fluorescence detection and on-chip spectrometry. The chip is to be fabricated using a single mask process based on the negative photoresist SU-8. The various subcomponents are discussed; in particular a spectrometer is presented and interfaced to a linear CCD. The integrated spectrometer combined with the CCD displays a resolving power of 175 for HeNe laser light. The fluidic system is a simple passive microfluidic network which can withstand a pressure in excess of 22 kPa without leakage as long as the sidewall is 10 μm or thicker.
