Cascade Microtech Gives Microfluidic Researchers Ability to Perform Live Cell Measurements With New Platform

via PRNewswire

M150 Measurement Platform scales with the experiments

The M150 Measurement Platform gives researchers a modular system that scales from an entry-level/low-cost system to a fully-loaded and feature-richtest station. The L50 microfluidic system bundle is a basic starter kit system for four-port electrophoresis and/or pressure pumping; it includes the LTPtest base, four precision micro-positioners, a four-pack of any of the Microport interfaces, and high voltage cables if applicable. With theintroduction of the M150 Measurement Platform modularity, the L50 system bundle is now upgradeable to a fully-loaded system by adding modules and accessories. The investment in the L-Series starter kit is more valuable thanever before with this new upgrade path established.

About the L-Series Microfluidic Microport interfaces

Announced in August 2005 by Cascade Microtech, the L-Series Microfluidics Metrology Systems are becoming rapidly adopted in the worldwide research community. They represent a significant leap forward in life sciences research methodology that is based on two new breakthrough products -- the L-series MFPand EBP Microport(TM) interfaces (tiny fluid and electrical field delivery mechanisms) -- developed exclusively by Cascade Microtech. The patent-pending Microport interfaces are based on micron-level probing technology developed by Cascade Microtech. The Microport interfaces will enable faster and moreefficient microfluidics measurements. The technology advancement represented by the use of the Microport interfaces enables scientists to dispense liquidor create an electrical field on a tiny workspace in a way never imagined formicrofluidics research applications.

Pricing and availability - flexible ways to buy

The new L150-M microfluidic system is available in Cascade Microtech's L-Series system bundles for U.S. $19,999. The system bundle includes themeasurement platform, optics mounting hardware, four microfluidics micropositioners, two standard microfluidic chips and a choice of onefour-pack of MFP, MFP-HV or EBP Microport interfaces. The thermally controll eddevice holder is an optional module that is available for U.S. $6,999. AllL-Series offerings will be available for order on May 1, 2006 .
