Microfluidic Devices

Designing, fabricating and formulating devices and processes that deal with low volumes of fluids (microlitres or even below) require micro-manufacturing skills that you can find in Sirris's micro lab.

The benefits?

  • Less volume of samples, chemicals and reagents
  • Unique chemical and physical features due to micro-scale
  • Many operations in parallel, multiplexing
  • Reduced cost (polymers, replication) 
  • Accurate control of process conditions (flow, temperature, pressure, …)
  • Reduced time of experiment
  • Automation

Application domains?

  • R&D and production : micro reactors for continuous flow chemistry
  • Medical : drug delivery systems
  • In-vitro diagnosis : point-of-care diagnostic kits, lab-on-a-chip devices

What can we do for you?

“Engineering solutions for your healthcare applications”

Sirris can help you in the process of developing and evaluating a prototype, from the very first idea to the preseries ready for industrialization. By carefully addressing the early stages in the development of a microfl uidic device, you minimize product risk during manufacturing and industrialization.

A good example of the added value, emerging from the encounter of two different worlds such as healthcare and engineering, can be found in this new generation of microfluidic devices.

The 20 experts of the Sirris Product Development Hub help companies to create innovative products and support them in the rapid development of proofs of concept in the fi eld of light, micro & smart products.

We have the engineering resources, high-tech facilities and a vast network of partners to help you with every step of the way during the process of developing microfluidic devices:

  • Design and simulations
  • Proof-of-concept, by direct micromachining (10 μm diam. tools) and/or micro-3D-printing
  • Prototype manufacturing, based on fast tooling and prototype moulds for injection moulding
  • Assembly and bonding
  • Integration of sensors or third-party items (filters, strips)
  • Conditioning (reagent pre-loading)
