Enhanced Performance for Microfluidic Devices

Unlock Enhanced Performance for Microfluidic Devices

Surface functionalization is essential in microfluidic device development to modify surface properties without affecting the material's bulk characteristics. This process enhances device functionality, allowing for better control and compatibility within various applications.

Why Use Surface Functionalization?
Control Fluid Dynamics: Modify surface wettability to control fluid movement.
Increase Biocompatibility: Ensure compatibility with biological samples.
Enhance Sensor Responsiveness: Optimize surface properties for improved sensor interaction.

Advanced Surface Functionalization for Microfluidic Devices

Anti-stiction Coatings

Anti-stiction coatings are used to prevent surfaces from sticking together during manufacturing and operation. These coatings are essential for processes like hot-embossing, where they help maintain the integrity of microstructural details.

Biomolecule Immobilization

This method involves attaching specific biomolecules, such as antibodies or nucleic acids, to the device surface to target and capture analytes within a sample. It's particularly valuable in diagnostics, enabling highly specific interactions for accurate detection.

Hydrophilic & Hydrophobic Coatings

These coatings adjust the wettability of surfaces to control liquid flow within microfluidic devices. Hydrophilic coatings promote fluid spread and absorption, while hydrophobic coatings repel liquids, useful in applications requiring precise fluid management.

Complementary Chemistry

Complementary chemistry involves modifying surfaces with reactive chemical groups that can bond at lower temperatures. This technique is ideal for assembling devices that contain heat-sensitive components or require the integration of dissimilar materials.

Passivating Coatings

Passivating coatings are applied to make surfaces inert, preventing undesired interactions between the substrate and sample molecules. This technique is crucial in reducing nonspecific binding that can lead to false diagnostic readings.
