Problem: Oven is not even, the PDMS stamps therefore will be to thin at one side or the fluid even leaks over the waver and the stamp will be to thin everywhere.
Solution: Filling up a Petri Dish with ~20ml PDMS and curing it in the oven (lower rack, placing dish at the very back on the right wall with the marker pointing perpendicular to the backwall). The fluid's plane will be arranged perpendicular to the gravitational force eventually. Future petri dishes with PDMS then can be placed on top of this device.
