Microfluidic chips are usually fabricated in a clean room but the purchase and maintenance of one is so expensive that many research laboratories cannot afford the bill. The BlackHole Lab research project has been created to provide turnkey soft lithography stations giving the opportunity to every research laboratory, even the small ones to realize their own microfluidic chips.
Plug and play SU-8 mold and PDMS chip fabrication stations
Fabricate SU-8 molds and PDMS microfluidic chips without clean room
You don’t need anymore to use an expensive clean room to fabricate high resolution PDMS microfluidic device in your lab.
Our soft-lithography stations are turnkey offers, no need to acquire any additional equipment.
They trust us
Numerous prestigious labs already trust us for their microfluidic applications, so you can take advantage of our expertise with complete confidence.
Why do they chose us ?
You get all the necessary equipment and accessories with a limited budget. We work with the best instrument providers in the field: the SoftLithoBox is exclusively composed of high performance apparatuses for soft lithography. Moreover we have kept affordable prices in mind so that you can invest your grants and funds in other areas of your research.
Training & support
You avoid weeks or months of training on highly sophisticated and expensive clean room equipment each time a new collaborator arrives in your lab. Our soft lithography equipment are specifically selected to be efficient and simple to use. Similarly, our protocols are adapted to be followed intuitively. Even for people unfamiliar with soft lithography, one day training is sufficient to get ready to produce chips autonomously.
Avoid tedious procedures
There is no need to manage your access to a clean room anymore, your fabrication facilities are installed directly in your lab and are accessible anytime.
Keep the control
You keep the full control of your intellectual property, avoid disclosing your novel microfluidic designs and limit unnecessary collaborations. Why asking someone else to manufacture your chips when you can readily do it yourself?
Open the microfluidic for everyone!
BlackHole Lab has for aim to make accessible the microfluidic for all kind of research laboratory or industry. Our products can be settled quite every where and usable by anyone.
We propose a wide range of equipments for microfluidic applications but we also provide training and scientific advise to guide as much as possible all kind of people that we are beginner or expert.
Our company have been created by a team of former researchers in microfluidic. Our core job is to offer station to make you own microfluidic chip. Depending on your needs we can advise you or install any micro-fabiraction facilities in your lab. For that Our R&D team will gladly counsel you.
Publications are the priority
As scientists, we know that publications in high impact journals are a top priority. With the SoftLithoBox® you can accelerate your research involving microfluidic systems and get experimental results faster.
How it works, step by step
You contact us, our specialists study your needs, fit the pack, provide and install all the equipment, provide all the accesories and chemicals, develop your process, train your team and give you tutorials for future lab members. One month after your first call you can be ready to execute the whole fabrication process and obtain all your microfluidic chips in 24-48 hours maximum.
