Regarding microfluidic consumables is the molded part not the end-product. Channels and features need to be sealed so the fluids can flow trough them, may be needed to combine various functional layers or components, could integrate functional elements like sensors and filters or even be used for fluid manipulation.
We understand that the design of a microfluidic and bonding go hand in hand when it comes to creating high-quality products. It’s important to recognize that the design can influence the bonding method, but the bonding method can also influence the design. This is why it’s crucial to partner with a team that knows the implications of each method.
At Axxicon our microfluidic experts have knowledge about finding the right bonding solution for your consumable. This is an important choice because it could lead to implement design features needed for the bonding method. During our DFM phase we can provide you with input regarding possibilities for your design and explore a route to verify the best options.
Below some common bonding technologies we are fammiliar with. If you have any questions regarding this subject, feel free to contact one of our engineers!
