Biochips

Biochips

We offer a variety of microfluidic biochips. All biochips are:

  • Disposable plastic; some with glass coverslips.
  • Require no assembly; unlike many standard perfusion chambers / flow chambers.
  • Require no Luer lock connections which increase dead volume. Cellix’s biochips have a unique plug and play connection with tubing connections which are autoclaveable and reusable.
