Title (EN) MICROFLUIDIC CARD THERMAL CONTROL
(FR) REGULATION THERMIQUE D'UNE CARTE MICROFLUIDIQUE
Abstract:
(EN) A device for controlling the temperature of all or a portion of a microfluidic card is described. The device is comprised of a housing having a passageway formed therein which is enclosed by a heat-transfer film to define a closed channel. Fluid at a controlled temperature flows in the channel. The device is held in registration with a microfluidic card for thermal control of the entire card or of specific regions in the card. Methods for performing thermal cycling and temperature-responsive reactions using the device are also disclosed.
(FR) L'invention concerne un dispositif destiné à la régulation de la température de l'ensemble ou d'une partie d'une carte microfluidique. Le dispositif est constitué d'un logement pourvu d'une voie de passage qui est formée dans ce dernier et qui est entourée par un film de transfert thermique de manière à définir un canal fermé. Ledit fluide à une température régulée s'écoule dans le canal. Le dispositif est maintenu en état d'enregistrement avec une carte microfluidique afin de réguler thermiquement l'ensemble de la carte ou des zones spécifiques de la carte. Cette invention concerne également des procédés permettant de réaliser un cycle thermique et des réactions sensibles à la température au moyen dudit dispositif.
