Consumables for Research Instruments and other Microfluidic Systems

World-leading Expertise

The successful use of picodroplet technology depends on specialist chemicals and biochips. Our world-leading expertise in this field has enabled us to create around 20 patented consumables available for use with microfluidic systems, with more products being developed.

We’ve designed our consumable products to be platform-agnostic, so they work effectively with a number of systems. However, for best results, we recommend combining them with our research instruments and industrial systems.

  • Pico-Surf™
    A range of biocompatible surfactants that act to stabilise picodroplets and their cellular or molecular contents over a wide range of temperature and biological conditions, making the process more reliable.
  • Pico-Glide™
    A coating agent designed to minimise non-specific binding interactions, improving picodroplet performance and stability and thus enhancing data accuracy.
  • Pico-Break™
    Used to separate picodroplet emulsions into visible aqueous and oil layers for use in single cell and molecule recovery.
  • Pico-Wave™
    A novel diluent used for picodroplet processing and studies.

Microfluidic Biochips

Pico-Gen™ Biochips

Our range of Pico-Gen™ biochips are designed to facilitate the production of reliable and consistent picodroplets, with volumes ranging from 0.35 picolitres to more than 1,000 picolitres. Made from soft polymer, our microfluidic biochips are compatible with a wide range of commercially available biochip connectors.

The biochips are suitable for a number of applications, including single cell or particle encapsulation, as well as the generation of picodroplets containing proteins, microcapsules, micro-gel beads and nano-composite beads.

Upcoming events

Invitation to our free Seminar on

Biomarkers – From Sub-Cellular to Live Cells

With this seminar, we aim to introduce you to latest developments and tools in biomarker research. The event will cover the broad range of biomarkers, from sub-cellular to live-cell markers.

We will highlight the impact of analyzing exosomes and microvesicles as well as virus-associated markers. Further you will learn more about the impact of metabolic switches and body-like microenvironments for primary cell culture.

Finally, biomarker aspects of single-cell cytokine profiles will be discussed as well as massive-parallel cytokine quantitation & phenotyping of cells.
