high density microfluidic connections
In some applications, there can be a requirement for a large number of closely spaced microfluidic channels. In such circumstances, it can be difficult to make the necessary fluid connections to external peripheral equipment without adding significant complexity to the functional microfluidic chip.
Epigem’s Fluence™ Interconnection System is used to address this issue, where connectors of practical size are held on an ‘adaptor plate’, thus divorcing fluid connection from the functionality of the microfluidic chip. Microfluidic circuitry can be fanned in or fanned out using similar design rules to electrical circuitry providing double sided and multiple layer connected levels..
