a world leader in microfluidic design and manufacture, has introduced the glass
Mitos Micromixer Chip designed for the rapid mixing of two or three fluid streams.
Compatible with the Mitos 4-way edge connector, this novel chip enables extremely
rapid mixing across a wide range of flow rates. Due to these advanced features,
this chip is ideal for the study of reaction kinetics, sample dilution, improving
reaction selectivity, rapid crystallisation and nanoparticle synthesis.
The chip measures 45 mm x 15 mm and incorporates two independent micromixer
channels, each with a volume of 8 µl, to ensure efficient mixing of the
fluid streams. As a static mixer with no moving parts, the Mitos Micromixer
Chip induces lamination of the flow streams at low flow rates. Therefore, the
mixing process is accelerated due to the subsequent reduction in the diffusion
distance between the different fluids. At higher flow rates, a degree of turbulence
occurs within the flow stream, which further reduces the mixing time. As such,
the micromixer performs exceptionally fast and total mixing of two or three
fluid streams within milliseconds.
With a low dead volume, maximum fluid recovery is ensured and accurate data
is easily obtained. Furthermore, this micromixer chip provides high levels of
visibility, which allows excellent access for optical inspection systems. A
wide temperature and pressure range along with excellent chemical compatibility
makes this microfluidic micromixer chip ideal for a wide range of microfluidic
