Microfluidic Device Analysis
Microspectrophotometers are used for microplate analysis by reflectance, absorbance and fluorescence
UV-visible-NIR microscopy and microspectroscopy for analysis of any microplate test point..
Microfluidic devices, sometimes called lab-on-a-chip devices, are designed to replicate a series of full-scale chemical and biological reactions on a single micro-scale device. They are sometimes called microelectromechanical systems (MEMS) for their fluid handling capabilities on the microscopic scale. A such, a single device is used replicate a series of chemical reactions but on a microscopic scale. Therefore analytical techniques are required that can measure whether reactions have reached a successful conclusion but of micro-scale volumes.
Due to the microscopic volumes of the materials to be analyzed, microspectrophotometers are the perfect tool. Able to analyze micro-scale volumes by absorbance, reflectance or even fluorescence, these tools are easy-to-use and very accurate. Their flexibility and accuracy make them very importance when developing or using custom microfluidic devices.

UV-visible-NIR microscopes, UV-visible-NIR microspectrometers and Raman microspectrometers are general purpose laboratory instruments. They have not been cleared or approved by the European IVD Directive, the United States Food and Drug Administration or any other agency for diagnostic, clinical or other medical use.
