Microfluidics

PyroScience offers special oxygen nanoprobes for applications in microfluidics. These nanoparticles incorporate our REDFLASH indicator which responds to the oxygen partial pressure inside the chip.

Additionally, it is possible to use sensor spots for oxygen, pH and temperature measurements and integrate this sensor spots into the microfluidic chip.

With our PICO2 read-out device it is possible to measure oxygen of even tiny sensor spots inside a chip.

Common applications with our sensors are:

  • Oxygen measurements with real-time response in microfluidic chips
  • Chemical/enzymatic reactions
  • High-throughput screening
  • Lab-on-a-chip applications
