In recent years, similar to the development of integrated circuits in the computer industry, the fields of biological and chemical analysis have also been miniaturized. "Microfluidics", also known as single-chip laboratory or micro total analysis system (µTAS), has made great progress in the past ten years and has broad development potential in the future.
Microfluidic chips refer to devices used in microfluidic applications. It looks like a microscope slide, but the internal channels are in the micrometer range. The microchannel is usually connected to an external pump to drive nanoliters of fluid into the microchannel through a microporous tube. Microfluidic chips in laboratory settings for microfluidic research are usually connected to syringe pumps using tubes so that fluid is driven into the chip to perform physical, chemical or biological experiments.

We provide a variety of solutions for the flow control function of the lab-on-a-chip. Flow control is a key function for the success of a complex microfluidic lab-on-a-chip. We must manage all the different on-chip test steps in the right way and at the right time. On-chip flow control realizes the design of a compact and autonomous microfluidic platform, which is essential for applications such as instant medical care.
We can use various biological, chemical, and physical processes to modify the properties of materials without changing their volume properties. We provide various solutions to achieve surface modification, such as coating and biomaterial deposition applications. Precise control and manipulation of the surface properties of materials are essential for the development of new, reliable, efficient, and multifunctional microfluidic components.

Alfa Chemistry provides you with professional sample preparation solutions. We can provide various sample preparation methods based on sample types and diagnostic tests, which is important for applications such as instant medical services. The advantage of performing a chip sample is that the entire process is fixed and there is no manual step. At present, our microfluidic sample preparation techniques include filtration and separation steps and mixing and volume measurement.
Microfluidic laboratory equipment typically requires reagents integration, and Alfa Chemistry provides you with the latest methods and strategies about reagents. We have the ability to integrate various types of reagents into the interior of the microfluid. We use many ways to integrate and release reagents, involving reagents in drying and liquid form, direct integrated reagents, active agents, as well as passive and mixed release methods.
