Versatile microfluidic reservoir caps made of corrosion resistant and autoclavable Delrin that can be fitted onto standard 100 mL glass bottles.  A choice of two different microfluidic caps with either two or four 1/4”-28 threaded ports, allowing customizable interfaces with microfluidic fittings.

The microfluidic caps contain 1/4"-28 threaded ports compatible with 1/16" OD tubing and are available in both 2-port and 4-port versions.  The 2-port version is ideal for applications requiring only a single fluid output, whereas the 4-port version can be configured to allow for three parallel fluid outputs using a single pressure source.   

The caps are made of autoclavable Delrin, a polymer material also known as acetal or Polyoxymethylene (POM) and possessing high strength and corrosion resistance to a wide range of compounds.

The standard 100 mL glass bottle has a simple yet robust design, allowing infinite reusability and giving the option of using large sample volumes or performing long microfluidic experiments.

Features & Benefits

  • Delrin is highly corrosion resistant and compatible with a wide range of solvents and organic chemicals
  • Threaded caps can be screwed on to any standard 100 mL glass bottle
  • Compatible with standard 1/4”-28 fittings for
  • Can be used with any type of pressure source
  • Delrin is autoclavable for straightforward sterilization
  • Simple design allows for quick and easy installation

Kit Content

The product is available in two versions:

2-port cap and 100 mL reservoir kit

  • Bottle cap with two ports (x1)
  • 100 mL glass bottle (x1)

4-port cap and 100 mL reservoir kit

  • Bottle cap with four ports (x1)
  • 100 mL glass bottle (x1)
  • Cap plugs (x2) (block unused ports)

Setup

The reservoirs are intended to be used in conjunction with a pressure source, whereby the reservoir is pressurized to facilitate the controlled pumping of liquid from the reservoir into a microfluidic system. An example of a complete setup utilizing the microfluidic cap and reservoir kit is demonstrated in the schematic below.

    Safety warning

    Working with systems under pressure above atmospheric pressure presents a safety risk, especially when working with hazardous liquids and gases.

    Darwin microfluidics cannot guarantee the strength of the provided reservoirs beyond atmospheric due to the nature of their material, transportation, and end-user handling methods.  It is thus the responsibility of the end-user to take necessary precautions to ensure their safety, including careful handling and operation and wearing personal protective equipment. 

    Working with pressurized reservoirs requires to follow some recommendations to ensure your security.

    Recommended pressure range: from -900 mbar to 2 bar. The reservoir passed the resistance tests for pressures higher than 2 bar, nevertheless Elveflow does not recommend to use it under these conditions because mechanical damages could occur.

    Pressure resistance tests have been performed on the pressurized tanks. Protocols and results of the tests are available upon request.

     

    General recommandations

    • Do not use a tube or a bottle that look damaged or has encountered a shock.
    • Use only the same tube references if you need a spare one. We cannot guarantee that other references of tubes or bottles used by the end-user will withstand the same pressure ranges.
    • Make sure that the tube/bottle used with Elveflow pressurized tube cap is adapted to the experimental conditions (chemical compatibility of the material, resistance to temperature, …) to fulfill security requirements.
    • Use security equipment adapted to specific experimental conditions. You may be using pressurized reservoirs containing dangerous liquids and presenting explosion risks (protection glasses, security net or shield). Also, depending on the nature of the liquid, it is the user responsibility to use indicated security equipment (PPE, chemical hood, …).
