MicroAcoustiX

The power of sound to make microfluidics active.

We integrate surface acoustic wave technologies with microfluidics.

Advancing passive microfluidics with active functions opens up completely new possibilities for particle, cell, fluid and droplet handling. At MicroAcoustiX, we combine Surface Acoustic Waves (SAW) technology with integrated microfluidic structures to create next-generation lab-on-a-chip devices. Find out what´s possible!

Take advantage from our know-how to reach your goal.

Our team has years of experience in designing, manufacturing and analyzing acoustofluidic chips and systems for high-quality results. Our patented manufacturing technology allows for the integration of SAW transducers and custom microchannel designs at waferscale, coming along with easy-to-handle chip-cartridge solutions and optimized experimental setups.

Ready-to-use

lab setups

We give you a head start with fast- and easy-to-handle acoustofluidic setups, even if you are new to the field.

Full waferscale microfabrication

With our techniques, your acoustofluidic application will be reliable, scalable and cost-efficient. Avoid the drawbacks of PDMS.

Highest geometry precission

We deliver the high geometry precision and repeatability for a proper function of your acoustofluidic system.

From prototype to series production

We offer acoustofluidic microchip fabrication from prototyping to small series and mass production.

Chips and wafers: Customized manufacturing

We are specialized in the design and manufacturing of integrated acoustofluidic chips with our patented waferscale microfabrication technique. Whether you are looking for a new acoustofluidic layout or improve existing ones, we have the expertise and resources to support you every step of the way. We also provide prototyping of passive microchannels and conventional waferscale masters for your soft-lithography approach.
