This modular microfluidic chip represents an innovative approach to create your own microfluidic platform for filtration and organ-on-chip cell culture. These chips were designed for reversible integration of various types of patches, microfilters, membranes, nanofibers, tissue constructs, etc. The inlets and outlets with integrated Luer connections ensure leak-free junctions with the tubing and allow experiments under dynamic flow conditions.
These chips were designed for reversible integration of various types of filters and culture patches (to be ordered separately). 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. The assembly is easy to use and with a reversible access to filter and cells in chip for downstream analysis.
The microfluidic chip is available in three configurations:
a) Filter integration with tow connectors chip for trans- patch application, such as dead-end filtration or trans patch perfusion.
b) Filter integration with three connectors chip for trans- or cis- patch application, such as dead-end filtration, cross-flow filtration, etc.
c) Filter integration with four connectors chip for trans- or cis- patch application, such as dead-end filtration, cross-flow filtration, or air/liquid-liquid interface cell culture, etc.
When a filter or patch is placed between the two plates, the force between the four pairs of magnets ensures auto-assembling at pressures up to 8 kPa. Finally, the standard Luer Connectors of the upper plate allow an easy perfusion.
To ensure good sealing with high flow pressures (up to 100 kPa), the chip can be placed in a hand screwed clamp for assembling and fast operation. At the end of your experiment in dynamic flow conditions, the filter or patch can be easily removed by dissembling the clamps and the microfluidic chip. A clamp can be ordered by following this link!

The modular microfluidic mhip includes:
- 1x Microfluidic Chip with Luer Ports
The microfluidic chip comes sterile and has to be stored in dry conditions, without direct exposition to the sunlight at room temperature (15-25 °C).
These chips are typically used for patch and filter integration. Then, micro-chambers and micro-channels patterned in both plastic plates will ensure the correct fluid perfusion.
Significative examples of filtration:
- giant cell trapping
- animal or bacterial cell isolation
- particle separation
In the 4-Luer Connectors version, micro-chambers and micro-channels are patterned in both plastic plates of the chip to create two independent microfluidic systems: the upper and the lower chambers separated by the patch. These two microfluidic chambers can be perfused with different culture media.
When a tissue patch is placed between the two plates, culture media containing different factors can flow in the upper and lower chambers separated by the patch. Different tissue models such as skin, alveolar, stomach, brain-blood can be created.
