Active flow control
Fully integrated valves and pumps
We at Micronit are now pleased to offer active flow control systems based on fully integrated membrane valves and pumps. We have developed a production process for reliable on-chip valve and pump technologies, which are actuated through a pneumatic control system. Our full platform technology development means we are able to provide these valves and pumps in a variety of materials and hybrid combinations all designed to meet application specific needs and our customers’ requirements. These material combinations include, but are not limited to, Glass/Glass, Glass/PDMS and Thermoplastic/Elastomer hybrids. This platform technology enables the design of simpler, more compact microfluidic devices, which offer the advantages of both reduced dead volumes and accurate small volume metering.
