We report a prototype for a standard connector between a microfluidic chip and the macroworld. This prototype is the first to demonstrate a fully functioning socket for a microchip to access the outside world by means of fluids, data, and energy supply, as well as providing process visibility. It has 20 channels for the input and output of liquids or gases, as well as compressed air or vacuum lines for pneumatic power lines. It also contains 42 pins for electrical signals and power. All these… CONTINUE READING
