In this presentation, we discuss opportunities of novel substrate materials for roll-to-roll (R2R) printed and hybrid electronics and diagnostics applications as well as future productions aspects. Traditionally standard substrates have been PET, PEN, PC, PMMA etc or stretchable polyurethane films. However, application requirements, especially wearable electronics and diagnostics, and sustainability issues are setting new demands for the future. Firstly, we present R2R thermal imprinting method to fabricate integrated polydimethylsiloxane (PDMS)-paper micro-fluidics for molecular diagnostics, which demonstrated in on-chip amplification of viral ribonucleic acid (RNA) with loop-mediated isothermal amplification (LAMP). Secondly, we discuss about new bio-based and recycled materials that include introduction of novel interactive cellulose fibre acoustic RGB-LED panel that is manufactured using R2R printing, chip assembly and foam forming technique. Moreover, to improve the sustainability, performance and consumer acceptance of printed and hybrid electronics we will introduce these functionalities on recycled, bio-based and biodegradable substrates and compare their functionality against traditional PET/PEN substrates. Third part of the presentation introduces PrintoNode industrial internet platform, which has been ramped-up recently. The aim of the PrintoNode is to explore challenges and solutions how to utilize collected process data in printed and hybrid electronics manufacturing and product lifetime towards novel data based business models.
