Flow Cells with Internal Reservoir

A microfluidic reservoir with one input port and one output port. The reservoir has optical windows on both the top and the bottom. This type of microfluidic reservoir is often used when observing relatively large biological entities

These flow cells are available with or without connectors:

  • Without connector --par number ends with -N
  • With Luer connectors -- part number ends with –L
  • With UpChurch Nanoport connectors -- part number ends with -U

** Please note that the bonding agent may extend beyond the connector footprint

Not sure what connectors you need? The following article “What type of connectors should I order?” may help you.

Available in two reservoir depths.


Material and Fabrication
  • Made from high-quality Fused Silica Glass
  • Made from three fused silica layers thermally fused together
