Pico-Gen™ single aqueous, oil inlet filter (60 x 60 µm nozzle)


Pico-Gen™ Picodroplet Generator Biochips are specially designed for generating picodroplets from a single aqueous source.

SKU: C102 Category:




Pico-Gen™ Picodroplet Generator Biochips* are specially designed for generating picodroplets from a single aqueous source. They enable reliable and consistent picodroplet formation with volumes ranging from as small as 60 picolitres up to 1,000 picolitres. Pico-Gen™ with a single aqueous inlet port and an oil inlet filter (60 x 60 µm nozzle) enables the generation of picodroplets 65 – 100 µm in diameter (150 – 550 pL in volume).

All Pico-Gen™ Biochips have an oil inlet in-line filter, which minimizes potential blockage of the flow focus nozzles. Simple and safe ‘Plug & Play’ fluidic interfaces facilitate easy connection of PicoGen™ Biochips to external liquid reservoirs and picodroplet collection devices. All channel surfaces have fluorophilic properties that work perfectly with Sphere Fluidics’ specialist chemical products (e.g.Pico-Surf™, Pico-Break™).

  • High picodroplet production rate.
  • Highly mono-dispersed and reproducible picodroplets.
  • Optimal picodroplet range is (60 picolitres up to 1,000 picolitres).
  • Long residence time on chip for easy visualisation.
  • Simple and safe ‘Plug & Play’ fluidic interface.
  • Wide range of sizes and designs available.
  • Excellent transparency for easy picodroplet visualisation.
  • Fluorophilic channel surface coating for improved performance.
  • Oil inlet in-line filter minimizes flow focus nozzle blockage.
  • Quick and reliable fluidic connection.
  • Single flow focus geometry.
  • Larger picodroplet sizes allow for longer incubation times.
