Microfluidic Testing using an acrylic vacuum chamber

Microfluidic Testing using an acrylic vacuum chamber
Our client performs a wide array of microfluidic testing in their laboratory. The requirements were 1. to install injection ports which are connected to a syringe pump outside of the chamber, 2. A gas port to pump gas such as carbon dioxide, helium, or argon into the specimen, 3. an electric feedthrough port in order to connect a heat plate and heat the sample inside the chamber during vacuum tests.

This was a custom chamber to which we added two feedthrough ports and an NEMA 5-15R power outlet (The same used in many US homes to power basic household appliances such as TV or a microwave)

The final design also included an aluminum base plate along with a heat insulator beneath to protect the bottom chamber wall from heat damage. Take a look at the light bulb being turned on as we pull a full vacuum on this chamber.

Our clients prefer to work with us because we are Experts in Vacuum Science and Technology. Check out some of our other items we carry that you can combine/integrate with your systems or projects.

Vacuum Chamber and Pump Systems
Our Vacuum Chamber and pump systems are fully setup and ready to go. What you get is a vacuum chamber, a vacuum pump, and connection hardware. We carry acrylic or metallic vacuum chambers and a whole range of vacuum pumps from Rotary Vane, Piston, or Venturi. What type of vacuum chamber and pump system you want depends on your project requirement, budget, and other specifications.
Wire Vacuum Feedthroughs
Wire Vacuum Feedthroughs are wires that are run from the outside of the chamber towards the inside of the vacuum chamber. We carry a wide variety of wires and wire gauges that can be used with any vacuum chamber.
Our Work: Bubble Leak Testing System with a Dry off Sink used for Leak Testing Large Bags
How do you leak test Large Food Bags? This is the same question a Large Food and Beverage Processor had asked themselves because they had need for a bubble leak testing system which could be used to detect presence of leaks in their large bags. Their requirements were to test several sized bags with the largest bag being 24 inches Wide by 12 inch Deep by 9 inches High. In addition to the bubble leak testing system, they also needed a way to dry the bags after the test.

Bubble Leak Testing or Bubble Emission Testing is a procedure where leaks are visually detected and located through the emission of bubbles while the test specimen is submerged in water. In this article, we will talk about using an acrylic vacuum box as a leak detection device. We are also going to talk about the advantage, disadvantage, and the bubble leak emission test procedures.
