Microfluidics - Measuring Microchannels

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. One could view this field as “a solution in search of a problem” except that several problems have already been solved:

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

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