In order to run microfluidic chips you need some basic lab equipment and instruments. We are able to offer instruments, pumps, and stages to get your lab up and running!

Pneumatic Primer for automated priming of chips


The pneumatic priming device is recommended for automated priming of the co-culture SynVivo chips. This method is much simpler and more robust than the manual method which requires water immersion in a vacuum desiccator. Protocols for using SynVivo chips makes use of this pneumatic priming device to impart a constant low pressure on the fluid to prime the microfluidic device.
