The Pico-Gen™ Biochips* enable reliable and consistent picodroplet formation with volumes ranging from as small as 60 picolitres up to 1,000 picolitres (hence our use of the term “picodroplets”). Pico-Gen ™ Biochips – 2 filters are designed with one oil inlet port, one aqueous inlet port and one outlet port. They have two integrated in-line filters (one at the oil inlet port and the other at the aqueous inlet port) to minimize blockage of cross-junction nozzles.
These Pico-Gen™ Biochips enable the generation of picodroplets 40 – 75 µm in diameter (35 – 220 pL in volume). Simple and safe ‘Plug & Play’ fluidic interfaces facilitate easy connection of the PicoGen™ Biochip 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™).
