Microfluidics Applications: Materials for different utilization

In microLIQUID we mainly use polymer materials in our product development and also glass and metals. We use them to fabricate microfluidic chips,different architectures,Integrate electrodes on microfluidic structures and Connectors (Microfluidic Chip holders).

Microfluidic structures

  • SU-8:Very precise and a good solution for prototypes.
  • COP or COC: Very good characteristics for health applications.
  • PMMA or Plexiglass clean room microfluidics.
  • PC: polycarbonate.
  • PDMS: Polydimethylsiloxane.
  • Substrates of Glass, silicon or your own processed wafers.

Integrate electrodes on microfluidic structures

  • Gold.
  • Platinum.
  • Titanium.
  • Chromium.
  • Copper.
  • Aluminium.
  • Nickel.

microLIQUID integrates metallic structures on SU8, COP, COC, PDMS, silicon and glass.

Connectors (Chip holders)

  • Plastic.
  • Metal.

The connectors have electrical connexion via Standard PCB(Printed circuit Boards).
