Designer's Corner

This section of our website provides tips and guidelines to facilitate your job as an instrument or microfluidic chip developer.  Our glass microfabrication approach is unique and offers, scientists and engineers like yourselves, an exceptionally broad range of design options.  Below, you will find a collection of technical microfabrication articles and design tips. They are written with microfluidic applications in mind, but many of the fabrication aspects presented here can be applied to other fields as well.  Whether you are in microfluidics or not, we hope this section will help you with your design and development program

Feel free to reach out to us at any time to discuss your precision glass microfabrication questions. We are here to help you and we realize that having real engineers ready to answer design questions is valuable. That's why we staff a team of experienced application engineers who can speak peer-to-peer with you when issues do arise.
