Micronit Update March 2014

 

 

 

 
 

 


  NOW AVAILABLE IN OUR WEBSTORE: POLYMER STANDARD CHIPS


Micronit has been a world leading supplier of a variety of glass-based standard microfluidics chips for more than a decade. Besides glass chips, Micronit is pleased to offer  2 types of our standard chips made from polymer; the R- and H- microreactors. They are available in cyclic olefin copolymer (COC) and polycarbonate (PC).
For more information and ordering please go to : http://store.micronit.com/fluidic-chips/polymer-microreactors.html 
Prices are € 39,- per piece.
Next to producing standard polymer chips Micronit also offers prototyping and product development for polymer as well as glass products.

 

 


 MFMANUFACTURING


Together with CEA-LETI in France, Micronit has successfully applied for an European  ENIAC grant for the MFManufacturing project, bringing together companies, institutes and universities from France, The Netherlands, The United Kingdom and Germany. Micronit will be coordinating this 18.6 M€, 3-year project, which is aimed at standardization in the microfluidics field, as well as the establishment of a virtual Distributed Pilot Line for the fabrication of microfluidic devices and systems. Standardization will be approached in its broadest sense, not only looking at interconnections, but also at process integration and compatibility, thereby promoting both interoperability of a wide range of microfluidic functions and alignment of manufacturing processes.
The overall ambition of MFManufacturing is therefore to increase the maturity of the microfluidic market and technology, along the lines of the development of the microelectronics field, such as illustrated below.

 

 


 ELECTROCHEMICAL IMPEDANCE SPECTROSCOPY (EIS) CHIP

Micronit has developed an Electrochemical Impedance Spectroscopy chip for the accurate detection for particles or cells as they pass between the electrodes.

The specially designed out-of-plane electrodes achieve a more parallel and uniform electric field when compared to in-plane electrodes. This increased field uniformity enables better particle detection by data acquisition systems. Micronit has also developed an interfacing system based on the Fluidic Connect PRO platform, featuring both fluidic and electrical interfacing to the chip.
A complete package is offered in combination with Fluigent’s accurate flow control systems and the data acquisition system of our development partner Zurich Instruments.

The dimensions (45x15mm), electrode layout and hole pattern for the EIS chips developed for the EIS Platform are fixed. The channel heights and widths are customizable and may be different from our current standard values of 28µm and 30µm respectively.
The lead time will be less than 2 weeks for the standard available designs and less than 6 weeks if you need customized channel heights and widths.
The creation of a fully customized EIS chip is of course possible, however additional design and development will be required.

Please contact our sales team if you need a fully customized design. 

 


  UPCOMING EVENTS


Lab-on-a-Chip European Congress booth #32, 10-11 March Berlin

It would be nice to meet you to discuss our latest innovations and developments in the field of microfluidics because we have been busy  the past year.
Did you know that... 

  • besides glass, we also offer product development and prototyping services for polymer, silicon and hybrid solutions?  
  • our parallel droplet generators can be designed in a variety of geometries and materials?
  • we developed electrical impedance spectroscopy (EIS) chips which are fully compatible with our Fluidic Connect PRO chipholder, Fluigent’s accurate flow control systems and the data acquisition system of Zurich Instruments?


These are just a few ideas to inspire you. Why not come along and see what more we can do for you?
Dr. Monica Brivio, Mr. Wilfred Buesink MSc. and Mr. Wouter Bolt will be happy to talk to you. Call +31 53 850 6 850 or mail us to make an appointment!


Analytica Hall A3 booth #232, 1-4 April Munich

Experience our innovative solutions and products for 

  • (Parallel) droplet generation 
  • Nanostructuring by Nano Imprint Lithography (NIL) 
  • Electrochemical Impedance Spectroscopy (EIS) 
  • Capillary Electrophoresis combined with our SideConnect technology (for e.g. water, DNA  or blood analysis) 

 
See for yourself the materials we are working with and discover which material would best suit your microfluidic device, whether it is glass, polymer, silicon or hybrid of any of these.
Our team is at your service. Meet::

Mr. Pieter-Jan Kwant (1-4 April)
