Improving Microfluidic Interfacing by using SideConnect
Micronit Microfluidics BV, Enschede, the Netherlands
Micronit has developed a new type of fluidic connection, in addition to its currently standardized FluidicConnect Pro platform. The SideConnect technology simplifies the microfluidic chip/cartridge design and thus reduces product costs. With no access holes in the top layer, this technology can be implemented either in a 2D (in-plane) or a 3D (out-of-plane) configuration.
This innovative technology has already proven to be compatible with applications like capillary electrophoresis, but the chip-cartridge design can be customized to any specific application.
