Research output: Patent


A chip-holder for holding a micro-fluidic chip comprises means for detachably fixing the micro-fluidic chip in the chip-holder and at least one process control device configured to support control or monitoring of a chemical process in the micro-fluidic chip, wherein the chip-holder is configured such that the process control device and the micro-fluidic chip are directly and detachably coupled when the micro-fluidic chip is fixed in the chip-holder. Such a chip-holder brings along the advantage that the micro-fluidic chip can easily be removed and exchanged while the process control device can be reused. This reduces running costs of a chemical microreactor system drastically and allows for a very flexible usage of a chemical microreactor system.
