Simplify Microfluidic Flow Cell Measurements with Low Coherence Interferometry

Low coherence interferometry is a powerful tool that has revolutionized the field of metrology, allowing for precise and accurate measurements of various parameters. One application where this technology has proven to be particularly useful is in the measurement of microfluidic flow cells.

These flow cells are widely used in a range of industries, including pharmaceuticals, biotechnology, and medical devices, where the precise control and measurement of fluid flow is critical. By utilizing low coherence interferometry, researchers and engineers can obtain detailed information about flow rates, pressure changes, and fluid dynamics within these microfluidic channels.

This not only enables better understanding of the behavior of fluids in these systems but also allows for the optimization of flow cell designs and the development of more efficient and reliable devices. With its ability to provide non-destructive, real-time measurements, a tool that uses low coherence interferometry, like Lumetrics OptiGauge II,  is a valuable tool for advancing the field of microfluidics and driving innovation in various industries.

The Lumetrics' OptiGauge II (OGII) is a time-domain low-coherence interferometer that has been successfully deployed to enhance product development (R&D), Quality Assurance / compliance, and production.  For more information on the OptiGauge II, download our product data sheet below:
