microLIQUID will be at Biospain 2018 this September 25-27 in Seville, Spain. We will be there together with the Basque Health Cluster.
For over 10 years, microLIQUID has provided the best services for Microfluidic Cartridge Manufacturing, Automated Instrumentation and IVD and Bioscience Services.
With capabilities spanning the entire value chain, microLIQUID has become a one-stop provider of end-to-end Bioscience solutions. Starting with design and proof of concept, we work with our company partners from development to mass-production of potentially fully certified IVD or Pharma products.
We would love to have an opportunity to demonstrate our latest offerings and technologies to you in depth as microLIQUID has grown over the last few months.
Many thanks for your time and we look forward to hearing from you!
For another year, microLIQUID will be exhibiting at AACC 2018 (Annual Scientific Meeting & Clinical Lab Expo) which will take place at McCormick Place, Chicago, IL, USA (July 31-August 2).
On behalf of our company, if you are attending to the event, we want to take advantage to have a meeting with you in order to talk about our common interests.
See you soon!
The use of durable replica moulds with high-feature resolution has been proposed as an inexpensive and convenient route for the manufacture of microstructured materials. A simple and fast duplication method, it involves the use of a master mould to create durable polymer replicas, using polydimethylsiloxane (PDMS). The application of PDMS offers numerous advantages due to its intrinsic properties such as its biocompatibility, affordable price, transparency (240nm-1100nm) as well as its low autofluorescence. The replica process enables fast and easy manufacturing since it can be covalently stuck to a glass substrate, using plasma treatment to form sealed microfluidic devices. The replica process is clean and precise, while multiple replications can be obtained from one master. This dramatically decreases both the expenditure and the time required to create specific patterns that need to be used consistently in the creation of various devices.
microLIQUID manufactures polymer SU-8 master moulds on silicon wafers, which are widely used to produce microfluidic disposables in the development and prototyping stage. In addition, we generate series of PDMS copies with excellent reproducibility and precision. microLIQUID offers high resolution moulds with a standard deviation of under 2%. microLIQUID is working in applications such as droplet generation for PCR diagnostics, single-cell analysis and high throughput screening among others. The moulds are highly reusable since we offer several treatments to increase the service life of the mould. This replica method will help you choose the optimum design for your product prior to scaling up to mass production. Indeed, more than 50 companies all over the world have already done so.
The company is now celebrating a decade working on the design and manufacture of novel microfluidic products for our customers; we are proud and delighted to have made it this far, and excited about the future!
During this time, we´ve grown in many ways, for example by increasing the number of employees and clients, as well as boosting revenues. We have collaborated successfully in more than 300 microfluidic projects around the world, doubling our turnover since 2014 and we have gained vast experience in this business dimension. In addition, we develop new value propositions to our customers, offering unique complete value chain solutions from complex microfluidic consumables that can be processed on our own design automated instrumentation (e.g. Point of Care instruments).
Since its establishment, microLIQUID has focused on delivering quality to its customers and fulfilling their expectations. This is the reason why so many of our clients and partners trust our professionalism and appreciate the individual approach we provide.
We are grateful to all those who have worked with us and have helped us over these last 10 years to develop our company. microLIQUID´s success would not have come to fruition had it not been for their unwavering support.
We are optimistic about what lies ahead and are very confident that we will be able to help many more future customers around the world to manufacture solutions based on our microfluidics and automated instrument solutions in fields such as rapid testing, immuno-oncology, NGS and Precision medicine, liquid biopsy and drug delivery among others.
microLIQUID will be at the 2017 AACC Clinical Lab Expo this August 1-3 in San Diego, CA.
AACC is a global scientific and medical professional organization dedicated to clinical laboratory science and its application to healthcare. Their leadership in education, advocacy and collaboration helps lab professionals adapt to change and do what they do best: provide vital insight and guidance so patients get the care they need.
On behalf of our company, if you are attending to AACC, we want to take advantage to have a meeting with you in order to talk about our common interests.
We will be pleased to invite you to join our booth #630, where we will be showcasing our latest offerings and technologies, and we will have our top product experts on hand to answer your questions.
Looking forward to seeing you.
Microfluidics: Chemotaxis and ADVANTAGES
it is known microfluidics nowadays is revolutionizing the way the motile behaviour of cells are studied.
It has enabled observations at high spatial and temporal resolution is carefully controlled microenvironments.
Taking into account both of the parts, chemotaxis and microfluidics, there are some advantages when using them two together:
– Presents experimental challenges that are not observed on chemotaxis studies of surface-adherent cells.
– Generate steady, arbitrarily shaped chemical gradients.
– Unique control over the chemoattractant gradient and the migration environment of cells.
– Provide spatial and temporal control over a reproducible chemical environment.
– Enables building well defined and stable chemical gradients at cellular length scales.
– Provide a platform for quantifying cellular responses at cellular and molecular levels.
