Title (EN) MICROFLUIDIC CHIP WITH BEAD INTEGRATION SYSTEM
(FR) PUCE MICROFLUIDIQUE AVEC SYSTÈME D'INTÉGRATION DE BILLES
Abstract: front page image
(EN) The present invention is notably directed to a microfluidic chip. The chip comprises a main microfluidic channel, on one side of the chip, and a bead integration system. The bead integration system is arranged on said one side of the chip. It comprises an auxiliary microfluidic channel transverse to and in fluidic communication with the main microfluidic channel, so as to form an intersection therewith. The intersection is delimited by structural elements arranged in the main microfluidic channel. The structural elements are configured to retain, at said intersection, beads flowed in a bead suspension liquid advancing in said auxiliary microfluidic channel and passing the intersection. In addition, such structural elements are configured to let liquid advancing in the main microfluidic channel pass the intersection through the structural elements. The invention is further directed to related devices and methods.
(FR) L'invention concerne notamment une puce microfluidique. La puce comprend un canal microfluidique principal, sur un côté de la puce, et un système d'intégration de billes. Le système d'intégration de billes est disposé sur ledit côté de la puce. Il comprend un canal microfluidique auxiliaire transversal à et en communication fluidique avec le canal microfluidique principal, de façon à former une intersection avec celui-ci. L'intersection est délimitée par des éléments structurels disposés dans le canal microfluidique principal. Les éléments structuraux sont configurés pour retenir, au niveau de ladite intersection, des billes s'écoulant dans un liquide de suspension de billes avançant dans ledit canal microfluidique auxiliaire et traversant l'intersection. De plus, de tels éléments structuraux sont configurés pour laisser le liquide avançant dans le canal microfluidique principal à passer l'intersection à travers les éléments structurels. La présente invention concerne en outre des dispositifs et procédés apparentés.
