Picofluidics Limited can provide a complete microfluidic system to meet many development or pilot production applications. The system comprises of two key components, namely the fluid control system and the customer-specific microfluidic device module.

The fluid control system automatically controls and monitors the flow of up to 4 fluids to the device module through standard PTFE tubing (typically 1/8" OD).

The device module contains the microfluidic components required to meet the application specification. All of the fluid-wetted surfaces in this module are constructed using fluorinated polymers. Picofluidics Limited designs and fabricates the device module using proprietary technology. By using fluorinated polymers for all of the fluid-wetted surfaces, we can fabricate arrays of channels/devices to meet a customer's fluid control requirements. We use a 3-D polymer module arrangement which allows the user to maintain visual access, if required, to the critical fluid control areas.

We can provide a large degree of integration into each device module. When necessary, for test/development purposes, we can produce single device modules. Aspects of device performance can be verified by CFD (Computational Fluid Dynamics) simulations prior to device realization.
