Multiflux™ Overcoming the Challenge of Reliable Multi-Way Fluidic Connections
White Paper Nov 22, 2011
If you are struggling to create fast and reliable microfluidic
connections, Multiflux™ may be the solution you are looking for.
Systems for manipulation, analysis and control of small amounts of
fluids are becoming increasingly sophisticated. In addition, there is
an increasing trend for these systems to be designed at smaller
and smaller scales into the microfluidic domain.
In the field of electrical connections we are all used to robust and
easy to use multi-way connectors. However, most fluidic
connectors only allow the connection of one fluid tube at a time.
Furthermore, connecting microfluidic devices to macro-scale
systems presents many challenges.
If these are not addressed well, the benefits of working within the
microfluidic regime may be compromised, with an excessive
amount of research time being spent on time consuming assembly
and resolving leaks.
When working with microfluidic connections, engineers and
scientists are facing the following challenges:
• Easy to use: time-efficient assembly, no extra tools required;
• Quick solution: find a solution that allows to make and break
reliable and leakfree connections in seconds;
• Multi-way connections: interconnection of many tubes at
once in a high-density format;
• Simple and robust: find a solution that allows tube-to-chip,
tube-to-tube and tube-to-manifold connections;
• Compact and reusable solution.
All of these challenges have now been solved with Multiflux™,
