Microfilters for Modular Microfluidic Chips

These microfilters are designed to be easily integrated in modular microfluidic chips developed by Mesobiotech. The available patterns allow a wide range of applications from microparticle filtration to cell isolation.
Microparticles and cells can be isolated with high efficiency. By harvesting the microfilter from the chip it is also possible to collect them for further assays and cell manipulations.

These microfilters are designed to be easily integrated in modular microfluidic chips developed by Mesobiotech. The available patterns allow a wide range of applications from microparticle filtration to cell isolation.
Microparticles and cells can be isolated with high efficiency. By harvesting the microfilter from the chip it is also possible to collect them for further assays and cell manipulations. 

Micro-engineered filters are available for high precision microparticle or cell isolation. Unlike conventional filters, these filters are made of regular and high precision hole arrays produced by high precision techniques of mass production.

The shape, size and density of the holes are designed to specifically allow the isolation of circulating tumor cells, fetal cells or endothelial progenitors in peripheral bloods. They can also be used for the isolation of microorganisms or other purposes of complex solution filtration.

Typically, the working area of the filter is 9 mm in diameter, containing up to several millions of regular holes. The thickness of the filter can vary up to a few tenths of micrometers. The mechanic stability of the filter is ensured by an additional supporting ring and the total filter size is of 13 mm in diameter.

The microholes can have different shape:

  • Funnel shape
  • Cylinder
  • Conical
The smallest diameter of the hole can be:
  • 6 μm
  • 5 μm
Pitch can be:
  • 20 μm 
  • 40 μm

The microfluidic chips developed by Mesobiotech were designed for reversible integration of various types of filters. The setup consists in two plastic plates in PC (Polycarbonate), each having four integrated magnets for reversible assembly and an elastomeric PDMS thin film to ensure good sealing. The Luer Connectors in the upper part of the chip allow liquid perfusion and dynamic flow conditions during your experiments.

When a microfilter is placed between the two plates, solutions can flow in the upper and lower chambers separated by the microfilter.

Significative examples of filtration:

  • giant cell trapping
  • animal or bacterial cell isolation 
  • particle separation
  • microfiltration

 

Benefits:

  • Sophisticated hole shapes
  • Porosity up to 60%
  • Flat and stable
  • Optical transparent for convenient microscopic observation
  • Easy handling
  • Easy device integration
  • Suitable for various downstream analyses
