Rapid prototyping
of fluidic devices
Fluidic Factory will save you time and money

We use microfluidics to manufacture microcapsules, and initially used custom glass microfluidic chips from Dolomite for this application.

Material: COC (cyclic olefin copolymer), grade 8007S-04
Maximum device print size: 85 mm (l) x 50 mm (w) x 25 mm (h)
Types of devices: microfluidic chips, manifolds, micromixers, connectors, microreactors etc
Maximum pressure: up to 20 bar, subject to design geometry
Temperature range: Up to 77°C
Chemical compatibility of COC: Good resistance. Compatible with alcohols, aqueous acids and acids
Print time (size): 20 mins (small 15 x 15 x 2 mm), 1 hr (medium 40 x 15 x 4 mm), 24 hr (large 85 x 50 x 25 mm)
Workflow: create a CAD model, upload .stl file to Fluidic Factory Software, transfer file to printer via USB, print.

Microfluidics is a new and rapidly growing area of interest for us  and we’re receiving more and more requests to develop novel microfluidic chips.
”We can now manufacture fluidically-sealed, monobloc chips in just a couple of hours, which is a huge advantage, as we have no concerns over the pressures used during experiments causing delamination of the chips.
This enables rapid, iterative development of prototype microfluidic devices without the costs and intellectual property issues associated with using an external supplier – each chip uses just a few dollars of material.
