Folding flow micromixer
Pack of 2 micromixer chips.
There are various ways to mix fluids in microfluidics. A well-known and reliable way is the use of micromixers. Using micromixers with so-called folding flow techniques offers a lot of advantages over traditional mixing techniques. These micromixers contain a chain of elements, in each of which the flow is folded upon itself. This decreases the length scale for mixing and thus reduces the mixing time. Other advantages of micromixers are low quantities of fluids that are necessary and the stable environmental conditions this technique offers.
Folding flow micromixers are less sentitive to clogging compared to split an recombine mixers. We offer two types of folding flow micromixers: the Teardrop and the Swirl micromixer.
