Glass Flow Cells with Integrated Nozzle

Microfluidic chip with 3D shaped nozzleMicrofluidic chip with 3D shaped nozzle

Translume’s glass flow cells can be equipped with nozzles. This provides a means to surround a fluid of interest with a sheath. Nozzle-equipped chips are often used when encapsulating particles or in microflow cytometry.

Custom Vias, Slits, Blind- and Through-holes
