Introducing the Sphere Fluidics Pico-Glide™ 1

Pico-Glide™ 1 is a specialised chemical solution containing 0.5% (w/w) functional, fluorous polyether polymer that is chemically reactive to plasma etched glass and polydimethylsiloxane (PDMS) surfaces. After treatment with Pico-Glide™ 1, a uniform and
dense fluorophilic layer will covalently bond to the microfluidic channel surfaces of PDMS and glass devices. This fluorophilic coating enhances picodroplet performance and stability, especially when used in conjunction with our Pico-Surf™ surfactant dissolved in fluorous oil.
