Abstract:

We describe the design, assembly, and operation of a multichannel fluidic system for performing laminar flow biochemical assays on planar substrates under optical inspection using standard laboratory microscopes. The basic design uses a reusable elastomer gasket, which forms the fluidic channel, sandwiched between the substrate and a sapphire plate having integrated microfluidic connections. Designs for use with both upright and inverted microscopes are described.
