MICROFLUIDICS. MEGA INSIGHTS. 

Get big answers with micro-sized technology
Microfluidics technology empowers you to easily create the approach that’s right for you, so you can find the answers you are looking for and even what you didn’t know was there.

Simplifying your workflow through nanoscale automation maximizes efficiency and provides the flexibility to scale your projects with increased data output. This allows you to adjust your experimental plan to match your needs and your interests with microfluidics-based PCR and NGS library preparation.

Welcome to the power of micro.

THE POWER OF MICROFLUIDICS. MICRO POWER MEGA INSIGHTS.

Miniaturization

Miniaturization

Our integrated fluidic circuits (IFCs) have reduced reaction volumes, meaning you use less of your precious samples and reagents.

 

Scalability

Scalability

Scalable sample and target options allow from 144 to 9,216 individual reactions per run without the need to change platforms.

 

Flexibility

Flexibility

Precision-manufactured IFCs support different configurations of samples and assays for a broad range of applications and the ability to quickly modify or add to an assay.

Automation

Automation

Automated, streamlined workflows provide the added benefits of time savings, ease of use and standardization.

HOW IT WORKS

Every Standard BioTools™ IFC contains a network of fluid lines, chambers and Nanoflex™ valves, rubber membranes that deflect under pressure to pinch off the flow of fluids in a microchannel. The movement, mixing and reactions of samples and reagents are controlled within the chambers of the IFC using microscopic gates, resulting in a closed system that eliminates many individual pipetting steps and has low contamination risk with high reliability. Samples and assays are loaded separately and then combined in a pairwise manner to create unique individual reactions.

 

WORKFLOW

 

Design


Easy-to-configure complex panels mean fewer design iterations and more time saved. Our D3™ Assay Design Group can also assist you in creating custom assay panels.

Conserve


About 2 µL of sample can be used for 384 targets, resulting in more than 9,000 reactions and helping you to conserve your precious materials.

Conserve: About 2 µL of sample can be used for 1,536 targets, resulting in more than 9,000 reactions and helping you to conserve your precious materials.

Customize


Thousands of nanoliter-scale inlets help your sample go hundreds of times further than with a 96-well plate. Scale throughput without changing technologies, and add, remove or replace assays on demand.
