A Lab-on-Chip is a product that integrates one or several laboratory functions on a single chip from only millimeters to a few square centimeters in size. Lab-on-Chips deal with the handling of extremely small fluid volumes down to less than pico liters. The chips are available in microscope-slide-size and can be easily used within applications with standard microscopes.
The revolutionary potential of lab-on-Chip and BioMEMS systems, based on microfluidics technology, is widely recognised in life sciences, research and analytics as well in industrial process control and in the micro process technology.
If the available structures are insufficient for you, we like to develop and produce them according to your specifications, also in multi layers and even smaller structures.
Unique features combined with a high stressable optical material are the base of our Lab-on-Chip-solutions. It refers to glass sheets made of a resistant borosilicate glass, as well used for displays. Embedded in these sheets, there are structures serving the high-resolution monitoring of flow movements and processes under specific conditions. With a channel depth of just 50 µm, our chips allow the monitoring, as well as with transmitted and reflected light at high magnification. Multiple parallel channels make possible simultaneous and efficient execution of different experiments on a chip. Smallest test quantities are enough for analysing them. In addition the structures can be heated and cooled beyond all operating temperatures, found by comparable solutions within plastics. As well glass allows the usage of samples, which exist in strong solvents, alcohols, acids or alkaline solutions. A sterilisation and resterilisation via heat, steam and EO are also possible without any problems. The incomparable resistance and precision of the components offer valuable advantages in comparison to other solutions on the market. Especially no oxygen absorption does occur.
