Microfluidic glass chips are developed by etching or powderblasting holes, cavities, microchannels and nanochannels in glass substrates.
Powderblasting is a flexible, cost-effective and accurate technique for making microfluidic channels and fluidic interfacing.
Micronit applies wet etching (HF etching) techniques to make channel structures in glass. Depths down to nanometer scale can be obtained.
Deep Reactive Ion Etching is a unique technique to create deep, high density and high aspect ratio structures in fused silica or silicon substrates.
Laser drilling is a technology to structure high precision holes with nearly straight side walls.
To create gaskets Micronit uses an unique dispensing technique. With this inexpensive technique resealable flowcells can be made with almost any channel geometry, ideal for disposable devices.
