August 2, 2011 — Dolomite has embedded electrodes into microfluidic chips to integrate microfluidics and electrochemistry. On-chip functionalities include electrical impedance spectrometry, electrophoresis, amperometric detection, electrical heating and high voltage microfluidic experimentation.
Dolomite implemented its thermal bonding process to create complex, leak-free microfluidic structures with electrodes as small as 2μm. An additional layer of PECVD oxide or PECVD nitride can be applied to the electrodes for insulation. The electrodes — platinum, copper, titanium, gold, etc. — can cover up to 50% of the microfluidic chip when bonded.
Dolomite functions as a microfluidic application center and designer of microfluidics products and accessories. For more information, visit www.dolomite-microfluidics.com.
