Droplet-Based Microfluidics

WOP delivers prototyping and production services for droplet-based microfluidics. Also, custom-made microfluidic devices.

Droplet-based microfluidics is an emerging technology, successfully used at both academic and industrial levels.

Droplet-based microfluidics manipulates discrete volumes of fluids in a precise and reliable manner and provides essential tools to miniaturize and automatize assays.

The advantages of using droplet microfluidics over continuous flow systems are:

  • Throughput. The small confinement allows the individual cells to be trapped within the droplets, thus enabling high-throughput single-cell analysis.
  • Scalability. It has dimensional scaling benefits that enable controlled and rapid mixing of fluids in the droplet reactors, thus decreases reaction times.
  • Ability to run parallel experiments. A very high production rate of the droplets enables thousands of assays to be done in parallel.

Production & pricing

We provide prototyping and production services for droplet-based microfluidics. Also, custom-made microfluidic devices.

 

Our clients usually come with already developed chip designs.
We can work with your provided designs or develop a prototype together.

Microfluidic chip price depends on the microfluidic device design, the material chosen, and the number of chips ordered.

For example, a typical single-layer glass chip will cost from 50 € per chip, ordering 100 units and will take two weeks to deliver.

If engineering services are needed, a price is calculated separately.

Detailed description

Droplet-based microfluidic systems are compatible with many chemical and biological reagents. Also, perform a variety of operations that can be rendered programmable and reconfigurable.

The droplet sizes are adjustable and can be reduced to dimensions comparable to those of individual cells.

The droplet microfluidics application field is broad. It covers molecular biology, microorganism studies, microparticle synthesis, drug discovery & development, etc.

Glass, silicon, or polymer can be used for droplet-based microfluidic chip production. Every material has its advantages and disadvantages; thus, the choice depends on the application, type of solvents, design, and budget.
