CiDRA® Precision Services, LLC develops and manufactures flow cells for the life sciences, industrial, medical device and analytical instrumentation markets. These devices allow the instrumentation to interact with fluids and fluid born samples to quantify fundamental engineering and scientific information. Flow cells are found in such diverse applications as:

  • Cell Counting
  • Cell Analysis, such as Fluorescence Insitu Hybridization (FISH)
  • Colorimetry
  • Spectroscopy
  • Immunoassays
  • Genetic Sequencing
  • Atomic Force Microscopy
  • Scattering
  • Particle Counting
  • Flow Visualization

These diverse applications drive such a wide array of requirements that no single material or technology can hope to satisfy them all. That is why CiDRA® Precision Services, LLC offers many technological solutions, spanning from glass blowing to microfluidics so we can offer customers the right solution. With a view to total customer satisfaction, CiDRA® Precision Services, LLC is also a leading supplier of glass and crystalline components to vertically integrated OEMs who prefer to use their own flow cell technology.

Cleanliness plays a key role in flow cell manufacturing. Whether leveraging our state of the art cleaning facilities or our cleanrooms, we are capable of offering products with the surface qualities you require.

We draw upon a considerable range of technologies and capabilities to manufacturing a full spectrum of flow cells, from large scale devices to microfluidics. Our years of flow cell experience results in innovative design guidance and cost effective manufacturing processes. Whether your application involves components for OEM instruments, production tooling or consumables, CiDRA® Precision Services, LLC has the technology, know-how, and experience to design, prototype, and mass-produce flow cells for your applications.

  • Consumable Flow Cells: Consumable flow cells are designed for one-time use only. Cost efficiency is at a premium, but functional performance is rarely sacrificed. Read more...
  • Open Face Flow Cells: There are many applications where the best flow cell is one that can be separated and cleaned between uses. This is an application CiDRA® Precision Services, LCC pioneered. Read more...
  • Permanent Flow Cells: Flow cells are at the heart of many analytical, industrial, biological and medical instruments. They are design to be a permanent part of the instrument, and thus require more robust designs and manufacturing technologies. Read more...
  • Technology and Capabilities: No flow cell is the same, so it is reasonable that no single technology will fit all applications. CiDRA® Precision Services, LCC uses glass and ceramic machining, glass blowing and PDMS-based SlipSteam™ with glass, silicon and plastics to manufacture flow cells. Read More...
  • Catalog Products: CiDRA® Precision Services, LCC offers a suite of products intended to help you develop and use flow cells. They are productivity tools borne out of our unique experiences. Read More...
