REFLEX Analytical welcomes the opportunity to address your requirements for custom flow through capillary cells, microfluidic cells, microfluidic chips and devices.
The selection of optical plastic materials include but are not limited to Acrylic, COP/COC, Polycarbonate, Polystyrene and Polymethyl methacrylate (PMMA). If integrated with a detector CLICK HERE

The precision manufacturing process requires each cell to be either single piece fabrications or multilayer builds assembled by direct fusion without the use of adhesives. The bonding process allows for geometries that would be difficult, if not impossible. Microfluidic cells, chips and devices typically have features and channel sizes as small as 100 microns while larger fluidic devices have channel sizes ranging from 0.5mm to 3mm. If required, external machining completes the cell by adding ports and mounting holes.
The plastic materials are well suited for photonic and spectroscopic applications providing for optical clarity, chemical resistance and low fluorescence. Investigations supported include micro-volume analysis, DNA and protein synthesis, receptor analysis, synthetic organic chemistry, neurobiology, forensic medicine, polymerase chain reaction and many life science purposes.
Mechanical drawings with specifications and tolerances are prerequisite.
