Why Use a 3-Layer Diffusion Bonded Manifold?
A three-layer diffusion bonded manifold provides all the same benefits as a two-layer manifold, yet has the added design flexibility of an additional layer for fluidic channels. An additional layer for the bonded manifold allows channels to cross paths without mixing fluids or contaminating samples.
Benefits of a Three-Layer Diffusion Bonded Manifold
Diffusion bonding a 3-layer manifold provides the fluidic hub with a permanent bond at the molecular level. We do not use any glue or solvents to diffusion bond, so the fluidic channels are uniform and free of contaminants, which is crucial for many IVD and medical-related applications. We have decades of experience bonding 3-layer diffusion bonded manifolds (and other multiple-layer manifold designs) and would welcome a discussion to help with your design or provide a quote.
