Microfluidic Cells

Silson Ltd. are now pleased to offer silicon nitride membranes with an integrated polymer spacer as part of an expanding product range. These environmental cells are used to contain a small (~µL) volume of liquid between 2 membranes.

Two products are currently available as part of the initial range, a static cell where liquid is syringed into the cell via inlet ports and a self assembly cell where liquid can be dropped directly onto the membrane surface. The liquid is sealed within the cell for both designs with a specially designed snap-together clamp. The overall size of the sealed cells is only 16 x 16 x 3 mm.
