Microfluidics

Image of MicroPIV test equipment

Microfluidics is a rapidly growing research area focusing on flows in micro channels in applications such as MEMS, Lab-on-a-chip systems and other microfluidic devices. Several techniques, including MicroPIV and MicroLIF, can be applied for measurement of velocity, temperature, concentration, droplet size, and pH with micron scale resolution.

We offer system configurations designed for each individual application, providing two-component (2C) and three-component (3C) velocity measurements in a plane (2D). Simultaneous measurement of velocity and scalar quantities is also possible, requiring special multiple-detector systems.

The conventional µPIV system has been the workhorse to perform accurate 2C velocity measurements in micro scale, featuring the HiPerformance inverted fluorescence microscope with a specially optimized filter cube.

The new Stereo µPIV system provides researchers a unique opportunity to perform accurate flow measurements in micro scale. The system provides all three velocity components with high magnification, high resolution, adjustable field depth control, and superior measurement accuracy.

Unique to the new Stereo µPIV solution is the dedicated calibration kit, required to perform stereoscopic image calibrations in micro scale. Instead of relying on a simple linear ray tracing model for optical aberration, we offer a dedicated, accurate and precise calibration solution.

Microfluidics measurement systems designed by Dantec Dynamics have three common features: improved laser safety, optimized signal-to-noise ratio, and flexibility in image processing. First, a number of opto-mechanical components are used to ensure user safety, including laser safety interlocks and flexible light guides. Second, the optical components of the system are designed to maximize the signal-to-noise ratio of the measurement. Finally, the systems are delivered with DynamicStudio software, where image acquisition and advanced processing functions are implemented.
