Compatible instruments: the Nadia Innovate and Nadia Go

Nadia Innovate uses the Nadia Instrument as the core pressure controller and provides a workstation for development and test of new protocols for downstream production on the Nadia Instrument. The Nadia Go is a stand alone instrument, which enables the same customizable parameters as the Innovate, without downstream scalability.

The benefits of the Nadia Click Chips

on the Nadia Innovate or Nadia Go


Open configurable system to develop new protocols and applications.

Now with an ever expanding range of swappable application specific microfluidic glass chips.



Flexible PC software

Easy-to-use software to control the Nadia Innovate and create, change, test, and save new protocols.

Easy process visualization

High-speed microscope and camera for real-time observation of droplet formation.

Rapid protocol optimization

User-defined adjustment of droplet size, frequency, droplet components, temperature, and agitation.

Drive your research with customization

Easy software-controlled adjustments of critical parameters


Temperature control is essential in many biological applications, and requirements vary depending on experimental needs.

For example, keeping a cell sample at cold temperature helps maintain the transcriptome state, the production of hydrogel beads with agarose requires heating to keep the agarose molten.

With Nadia Innovate and Nadia Go, control the temperature from 4 – 40°C at every step, from sample loading, to during the run, to post-run incubation temperature.


Adapt pre – and post run incubation steps to suit your sample type. 

Or change the duration of a run to process different sample input volumes, ranging from 100 to 250 µl. 


To ensure an even distribution of cells and beads (if using beads) in droplets throughout a run, it is crucial to keep both in suspension as they will otherwise settle at the bottom of their respective wells, resulting in higher doublet rates.

On the Nadia Innovate and Nadia Go, stirring of cells and beads can be controlled individually, and stirring speeds can be changed dependent on cell and/or bead densities and properties.


Precise pressure control of 3 independent channels up to 1 bar to ensure flexibility and precision of droplet formation.

Adjust presures of individual inputs to achieve optimal droplet formation to suit the cell size, buffer composition and viscosity, or bead material of the experiment.

40 μm FACS Sortable Click Chip

High quality FACS sortable hydrogel scaffolds are

just a click away

Easy to use microfluidic glass chips for

FACS sortable hydrogel scaffolds and droplet genomics

Using our world-leading expertise we have created a microfluidic solution specifically designed to make small droplets, in order to provide optimal conditions for hydrogel scaffold production and increase the efficiency of your droplet genomics workflows.

40 µm FACS Sortable Click Chip features:

  • Compatible: smaller channels enable the production of hydrogel scaffolds that are compatible downstream with standard FACS instruments
  • Sort by external cellular environment
  • Easy to use: regardless of the level of your microfluidic expertise
  • Flexible: explore droplet genomics, or hydrogel scaffold production
  • Reusable: cost saving, multiple use glass microfluidic chips

What are the different parts of a Click Chip?

– Plastic Chip Holder

– Metal Clip

– Chip Gasket

– Glass Click Chip

– Optional Stirrers

Why are the stirrers optional with the Click Chips?

Stirring is made optional with the Click Chips as all applications may not require stirring (e.g., Lipid Nanoparticles). This also allows more flexibility with input volume ranges.

How do you clean the Click Chips?

We provide cleaning kits and protocols for cleaning the Click Chips

Can you make FACS sortable hydrogels?

Yes, using our 40 µm FACS Sortable Click Chip

Can you use hydrogels other than agarose with the 40 µm FACS sortable Click Chip?

Yes, it is possible to develop protocols for the use of hydrogels other than agarose

What is the size limit for biologicals that can be encapsulated using the 40 µm FACS sortable Click Chip?

Biologicals of sizes up to 30 µm can be encapsulated in 40 µm droplets using the 40 µm FACS Sortable Click Chip

Can you make Lipid Nanoparticles with the Nadia Click Chips?

The LNP Click Chip is coming soon!
