Microfluidics deals with the management of fluids confined to sub-millimeter microchannel dimensions. Due to these small dimensions, mass transport is dominated by capillary forces. Thus the physics and chemistry encountered is more ideal and easily predicted. Metering of various components can also be precisely controlled. These microfluidic devices are often used across a number of different applications primarily in the biomedical industry:

  • Lab-on-a-chip
  • Chemical synthesis at the mesoscale
  • Precise production of complex microparticles
  • Living cell manipulation including optical tweezers

Our Profilm3D® optical profilometer can easily measure microchannel dimensions from small to large, shallow to deep. Check out these images! ProfilmOnline®
