µEncapsulator 1 Sample Reservoir Chip (2x 100µl)

The Sample Reservoir Chip for the µEncapsulator 1 module contains 2 reservoirs of 100 µl volume for storage of biological samples at temperature before droplet formation. Reagents are pipetted in the inlet ports. There are 2 additional straight through channels for carrier oil input and emulsion output. The smooth channel surfaces and precision fabrication provide an excellent flow path for passage of encapsulated material. The Sample Reservoir Chip can be used in conjunction with the Droplet Chip 1 (part no. 3200445) to form 2 reagent droplets.

Features and benefits:

  • 100 µl storage volume for 2 reagents
  • Reagent 1 and 2 channel cross-section 1.00mm x 1.40mm (depth x width)
  • Reduced cross section for the oil-in and emulsion-out channels (0.50 mm deep x 1.02 mm wide)
  • Compatible with standard pipettes for injection of reagents
  • Functionalised top surface to hold reagents in reservoirs
  • Chip size 30mm x 15mm x 4.1mm
  • Fabricated in glass
  • Very smooth channels (surface roughness Ra of 5 nm)
  • Excellent optical clarity
  • Easy to clean
