Particle & Cell Sorting Chip - Spiral Sorter - mini Luer
- Product SKU: CS-10000159
- Category: Cell Culture Chips, Microfluidic Chips, Microfluidic ChipShop, Microfluidic Droplet Generators, Standard microfluidic chips
This Sorting chip allows you to separate particles with different dimensions reliably and accurately. There are 4 variations of one main spiral design for different sorting effects on the same chip. The chip includes mini Luer connections to ensure leak-free junctions to the inlet ant outlet tubing.
It is available in PMMA (polymethylmethacrylate) or Zeonor (COP, cyclic olefin polymer) for a wide range of applications.
The ChipShop chips are convenient, cost-effective and reliable for all your experiments:
- Mini Luer connection molded with the chip: leak-free
- Highly-resistant and optically clear material: PMMA (polymethylmethacrylate) or Zeonor (COP, cyclic olefin polymer)
- Standard microscope glass slide size (75.5 mm x 25.5 mm x 1.5 mm)
- Lid thickness of 175 µm for the PMMA chip and 188 µm for the Zeonor chip
- 1 unit
Spirals can be used to separate particles according to their size due to the so-called Dean forces. Channel dimension, number of spirals and diameter of the curvature influence the sorting effect. The sample is introduced through a central inlet and fractions with particles of different size can be received at the different outlet ports.
The chip contains four sorting structures with the following features:
|Structure||Number of turns||Number of outlets||Channel width (µm)||Channel depth (µm)|
PMMA is a transparent thermoplastic, often used as a light-weight or shatter-resistant alternative to glass. It is sometimes called acrylic glass or Plexiglass. Chemically, it is the synthetic polymer of methylmethacrylate. PMMA is an acrylate polymer with an ester-group. This can be used to modify the surface chemically.

Zeonor (COP) is a thermoplastic cyclo-olefin polymer, completely nonpolar and amorphous. It has a very low permeability for water vapour and a low capacity for the absorption of water.
