MICROFLUIDIC DESIGN & DEVELOPMENT

MICROFLUIDIC DESIGN & DEVELOPMENT

Creating a microfluidic device requires specific skill-sets in dimensional-similitude when scaling a bench-top assay onto a device.  Channel dimensions, schematic layout and other physical geometric attributes influence the fluidic behavior of the device.  Strategic placement of blisters, vents, valves, and other functional attributes can make or break the assay being executed.

Wi has 10 years of experience when it comes to devising successful microfluidic architectures and schematics that lead to a successful device.

  • Passive valves
  • Active valves
  • On-device filtering
  • RBC/WBC filtering
  • Dried-down reagent placement
  • On-device fluids
