Redbud Labs’s MXR microfluidic chip is the world’s fastest, most adaptable cartridge-ready™ microfluidic mixing component. MXR (“mixer”) enables effective, controlled fluid mixing at low volume levels, less than about 200 μL. MXR is a modular, fully assembled microfluidic chip that simply clicks into place in a testing cartridge. MXR effectively overcomes limitations due to poor mixing and is useful in a variety of applications, from biomarker discovery to point-of-care diagnostics.

HOW MXR WORKS

Mix fast

Who has hours and hours and hours to wait for effective mixing from diffusion? But, as every chemist knows, your reaction success depends on effective mixing. At typical laboratory volumes, stir bars, shaking and swirling can all provide adequate mixing, but these techniques are impractical or ineffective at the microscale. MXR is designed to mix your sample with your reagents in a microfluidic chamber, fast. The microfluidic agitation of Redbud Posts™ behave like ceiling fans (or surface-attached stirbars) rapidly drives analytes of interest to rapidly react with reagents that become evenly distributed in the microfluidic chamber. The result of using MXR chips is often shortening an assay’s time to read results (i.e. time-to-result).

Boost sensitivity.

Since MXR is so effective at mixing, analysis of the typical amount of sample leads to maximizing the signal in the test readout. However, when the requirements for sample must be low, employing MXR can enable sufficient readouts. This can offer a huge advantage for systems being developed that are aimed to test vulnerable patient populations.

Minimize risks.

From biomarker discovery to diagnostic test production, whatever your application, MXR is cartridge-ready. Choose to develop your assay using our modular starter kits. Design a protocol that fits your needs, whether it uses static chambers or continuous flow. Integrate mixing wherever it’s needed by integrating the chip in a single step. Assemble your consumable in high-volume using standard equipment. MXR enables both assay and system developers to work at the microfluidic level with the same component and get the same performance throughout thereby mitigating assay rework risks that are common in porting a benchtop assay.

Control costs.

The MXR chip could replace multiple components in an assay cartridge, thus reducing the number of assembly steps and a system’s cost of goods significantly. In addition, reagents commonly drive a system’s build of materials cost. However, since MXR is so effective at mixing, reagent requirements for quantity and/or concentration can often be lowered having a significant impact on the system’s cost.
