(EN) MICROFLUIDIC APPARATUS AND METHOD
(FR) APPAREIL MICROFLUIDIQUE ET PROCÉDÉ
Abstract
(EN)
Disclosed is a microfluidic cassette comprising a microfluidic cassette body comprising at least one fluid flow channel, and at least one chamber containing reagent.The chamber comprises a seal to prevent fluid from entering the chamber. The seal is breakable in situ in the cassette body. The cassette body and the chamber are configured such that when the seal is broken, the reagent is exposed to fluid flow in the channel.
(FR)
L'invention concerne une cassette microfluidique comprenant un corps de cassette microfluidique comprenant au moins un canal d'écoulement de fluide, et au moins une chambre contenant un réactif. La chambre comprenant un joint pour empêcher le fluide d'entrer dans la chambre. Le joint est cassable in situ dans le corps de cassette. Le corps de cassette et la chambre sont configurés de telle sorte que, lorsque le joint est cassé, le réactif est exposé à un écoulement de fluide dans le canal.
