The easy-to-assemble Membrane Chip Interface comprises a porous PTFE
membrane mechanically secured between two microfluidic chips, and offers rapid
set-up with just standard 1/16” tubing; no additional tools or fittings are
necessary. In its standard set-up, a 25mm hydrophobic membrane is held between
identical top and base chips, with tubing sealed directly to the chip to
achieve a low internal volume of 60µl and minimize the dead volume.
The Membrane Chip Interface has excellent chemical compatibility, and
can accommodate a wide range of temperatures and pressures, from 0 to 80°C, and
0 to 10bar. The innovative design enables good visibility of the membrane
interface during the reaction, allowing experimental observations to be made
effortlessly. For maximum flexibility, different membranes and gaskets may be used
between the glass chips – a broad range of membranes can be supplied – and
custom-designed chips are also available, enabling a diverse array of reactions
to be easily performed.
